Kino Technology

Kino uses neural networks, trained on domain-specific datasets, to do high quality reconstructions of your images so you can continue to monetize legacy video and photo assets for decades to come. The traditional way to upscale images is to use an interpolation function to determine the in-between pixels based on the pixels from the original image. However, this approach results in a blurry appearance in detail-rich areas on the image.

Kino uses machine learning to understand the underlying image and then “guesses” the in-between pixels. Kino’s approach uses different functions in different parts of the image and this produces a sharper upscaled image.
