The AI engine is known for analyzing and studying the low-resolution video frames and filling and creating similar neighboring pixels for enlarging the frame by 300%.
What is lossless video file compression?
Lossless compression doesn’t throw any information out — instead, it simply stores the information in a more efficient way.
The compression here enables you to create the original file all over again. For example you can compress the video file so that it can be transferred to others easily. And if the receiver wants to uncompress with its quality intact he can perform these actions in no time.
Although it takes a bit of more space, your data will be preserved in your system perfectly.
How about VR & AR?
In the future, it’s likely we’ll experience VR/AR in ways we can’t yet imagine. There are many prominent technical advancements to explore nowadays. As we all aspire to have better, affordable and faster VR technology. Here the smartphone technology advancement (like better quality cameras and faster processors) means that we would like to look for slicker VR and AR experiences on our mobile. Moreover with the 5G networks everyone can enjoy while being in any part of the world.
Is 8K the future video resolution trend?
We predict that 8K—an upgrade and complement to 4K resolution—will generate US$3.3 billion in global revenue in 2021, with this amount rising steadily over subsequent years. These revenues will come predominantly from sales of 8K TV sets to consumers (an anticipated 1 million units with an average selling price of US$3,300), with the standard becoming increasingly popular for the largest television set sizes. In addition, sales of equipment (such as cameras, monitors, storage, and computers) related to the creation and production of 8K content should generate hundreds of millions of dollars globally for the year.
