An overview of the new spatio-temporal video filtering technique was presented in this paper. The extension of standard techniques based on temporal Gaussian combined with Fast Digital Paths Approach [9] with fuzzy similarity function was presented. Presented technique provides excellent noise suppression ability especially for low light sequences.
