Broadcasters and streaming organisations are commissioning content with increasingly challenging acquisition specifications that extend our experiences into faster, smaller, more colourful, darker, and generally more immersive spaces. This projectaims to create an AI enabled production workflow that jointly optimises low light content addressing denoising, contrast enhancement and colorization. Distortions are endemic in low-light video and noise increases with decreasing light intensity. While faster lenses support wider apertures, and high-quality sensors offer improved low-light performance, there is still a significant gap between the demands of commissioners and the capability of acquisition hardware. Distortion management is thus essential in any production workflow.
Launched in April 2021, MyWorld is a brand-new five-year programme, the flagship for the UK’s creative technology sector, and is part of a UK-wide exploration into devolved research and development funding (UKRI video). Led by the University of Bristol, MyWorld will position the South West as an international trailblazer in screen-based media. This £46m programme will bring together 30 partners from Bristol and Bath’s creative technologies sector and world-leading academic institutions, to create a unique cross-sector consortium. MyWorld will forge dynamic collaborations to progress technological innovation, deliver creative excellence, establish, and operate state of the art facilities, offer skills training, and drive inward investment, raising the region’s profile on the global stage.
