    Worth while to try a few more pictures. It's unlikely that an algorithm is fit for all pictures. Perhaps willl do better in other scenarios.

    Gaming applications?

    Show good results with a video and I might be interested.

    Someone would need to make an effective 30-60fps version of this. Not sure we will see it this gen ;)

    Sony's high end Bravias have had smart upscaling (read about X-Reality Pro here) which insert 'missing' information during the upscale for years. And it is surprisingly good. :yep2: The origins of this technology are in Sony's professional TV broadcast equipment which has to deal with old video sources and make them presentable for modern broadcast standards.

    Hmm. So a separate ASIC/FPGA doing the work it sounds like ?

    Yes, it's a bespoke chip unique to the higher-end Bravias. Sony's 'affordable' sets don't include it and those cheap bastards buying those sets don't deserve it. :runaway:

    Maybe it is best suited for art like games and not for real life photos, despite the impressive look of that pic from the tweet. (however, my pic..I am dark haired and the upscale kinds of make it fairer)

    It'd be also interesting to try with naked photos of @AlNets , @DSoup and @London-boy to see how they upscale.

    I'm curious as to how the PM conversations will go in response to your post cyan.

    Is this sexual harassment and we need to close B3D now?

    That’s it. It’s the end of B3D. It’s been incredible guys, I’ll miss you.
