The project aims at developing tools for digital restoration of large amounts of broadcast archive documents (video and film), for re-exploitation purposes. The project will build upon earlier developments realised within the framework of the AC072 Aurora project.
The Brava project will provide tools for re-exploiting the huge archives programme stocks available from archives such as INA, BBC, RTP or RAI.
The effort is oriented towards restoration of archive programmes, up to the 'broadcast' quality level. This will provide the missing link to supply the emerging programme streams and bases with a complete range of programmes of multiple sources.
