An Automatic System for Restoring Image Sequences
Old motion pictures often present defects due to poor preservation conditions or to rudimentary shooting techniques. Restoration of these films is necessary in order to recover a version closer to the original. With an automatic method, restoration would be affordable for most pictures.
In this paper an automatic restoration system for image sequences is presented: SARSA (Système Automatique de Restauration de Séquences Animées). It implements restoration algorithms for different kinds of defects.
