Infognition Video Enhancer allows you to:
With Video Enhancer you can perform all these tasks together or just some of them.
- Increase resolution of your video with
video Super Resolution
each frame is upsized using information from
a number of neighbor frames to extract maximum
details for outstanding results. All the other resize
algorithms use information from one current frame only.
Now you can convert low res standard definition (SD)
video to high definition (HD) quality!
- Use more than 220
VirtualDub filters for powerful and flexible video editing: deinterlacing, denoising, deblocking,
color correction, stabilizing, sharpening, visual effects etc. On multiprocessor systems, dual core or hyperthreading CPUs, Video Enhancer
performs much faster
than VirtualDub because all filters, decoders and coders work in separate threads, simultaneously.
- Open any video which can be played in your system and
re-compress it with any video codec (DirectShow, DMO and Video for
Windows) installed in your system.
Version 1.9 had
user interface in English, German, French, Spanish, Portuguese (euro and Brazilian), Italian, Dutch,
Norwegian, Swedish, Russian, Greek, Indonesian, Serbian, Polish, Turkish and Chinese.
Version 2.0 is currently English-only.

1. Video Super Resolution
Video Enhancer can upscale digital videos to any resolution with superb quality: be it 480p to 720p, 720p to 1080p, 480p to
1080p or anything else. Super Resolution is a method to upscale video and images, i.e. increase resolution of a video or picture
(terms "upsize", "up-convert" and "uprez" are also widely used). To upsize each frame, information from this very frame and
from a number of neighbor frames is effectively used. If picture in your video is not changing too fast, then information from
several frames is added to create a larger and more detailed picture. No algorithm of ordinary image resize/resample is
capable of providing this quality just because of the lack of information in one frame.
Here you can find examples of Super
Resolution technology in action:

We performed extensive testing of different upscaling options. The result is a
comparison of Infognition's technology with other resizing methods, including vReveal by MotionDSP,
Instant HD by Red Giant, Boris FX Uprez, Genuine Fractals etc.
Sample videos used in comparison are available for download and sceptics are welcome to check our results.
To ensure the above pictures are real, you can download the
test video clip (2.9 MB),
upsize it 4 times in Video Enhancer and see it for youtself.
The clip is compressed with Lagarith Lossless Video Codec.

2. Two hundred filters for video editing
You might be familiar with VirtualDub - a powerful video editing
application. What makes it so powerful is a vast collection of video and audio filters.
Over two hundred filters for VirtualDub provide limitless possibilities: use Subtitler filter to subtitle videos, logoaway filter to remove
annoying logos, deshaker to stabilize shaky video, denoise for noise reduction, or cartoonizer to make a movie look like cartoon.
You can crop and rotate a video scene, deinterlace, adjust brightness or correct video with frame luminance variations using
deflicker. A disadvantage, however, is that VirtualDub reads AVI files only and works with Video for Windows codecs only.
Video Enhancer allows you to use most of the VirtualDub filters (90% now)
combining with power to open any video file (AVI, WMV, MPEG, RM, MOV - see
documentation for details) and use any video codec either Video for Windows or
Unlike VirtualDub, in Video Enhancer all filters, coders and decoders
work simultaneously in separate threads (model known as multithreading). For example, if you process a
video with two filters, then at the time coder compresses the first frame
second filter is already processing second frame, first filter is processing
third frame and decoder decompresses fourth frame.
Simple test with
processing DV video with 3 filters and compressing it with XviD showed
1.9 times higher speed than VirtualDub on Dual Core AMD Opteron.
Here is a list of VirtualDub filters
that proved to work well with Video Enhancer. Choose any filters from that list,
download them, unpack and put *.vdf files to "plugins" directory in the
Video Enhancer folder. If you have VirtualDub installed, then Video Enhancer
will find installed filters automatically.
In Video Enhancer you can create chains with any number of VirtualDub
and Super Resolution filters. It means you can filter your video
before resizing, after resizing, between or even instead. ;)
3. Convert your video
After you've decided what to do with your video, you can choose any video codec
to compress your output video to reduce the output file size. Video Enhancer
lets you use not only VfW codecs (like VirtualDub) but also DirectShow and DMO
ones, i.e. any video codecs.
