The need for the design of new image manipulation tools for both consumer and
professional postproduction has substantially widened the breath of research in
image/video/vision processing. While machine vision tools have been used
successfully by industry for many years, it is only with the success of Digital
Television and Digital Media Streaming that more sophisticated moving image
processing has shown mainstream success in the worldwide community. This talk
tries to chart a course showing how tools in restoration that have been
considered for over a decade now, have migrated into the post-production
community where they have metamorphosed into other applications. It highlights
some emerging trends and tries to explore why researchers and post-production
industrialists have become friends.
