MotionDSP turns low quality and poor resolution videos into much higher quality videos and was first used by the US Military in 1998. It works by comparing multiple frames in a video to find and replace lost pixels in any other frame.
YouTube plans to stick the software into beta for its consumers later this year. According to hight3ch.com, it will be free for punters to upload and use. The system does not make a silk purse out of a sow's ear and seems to work better if the camera does not move much.
