Neural Networking Upscales 01895 Short Film

An early example of moving images, Lumière Brothers’ 01895 short “Arrival of a Train at La Ciotat”, has been revitalized and upscaled by Youtuber Denis Shiryaev. Shiryaev reworked the clip through the use of several neural networks to upscale the clip to 4K resolution and 60 FPS. The result is an impressive sharpness and clarity of image, bringing the clip to life anew.
