AI Video Upscaling: Upscale 360° Video to 4K/8K for Free
"Is there any way to upscale 360° Video from YT/WebXR?"
Most of the 360° Videos available on YouTube or via WebXR are looked terribly pixelated when viewed. Is there any way to make them look better? Unfortunately, that's the case. There are so many interesting VR experiences but the resolution makes them so blurry that it hurts. The blurry is caused by a great deal of the issues is that the cameras cannot capture enough detail at a distance and most only record at a max of 30fps. You can increase frame rates in your videos and that helps the quality of experience a little, while now there is an AI solution.
Part 1: What is 360° Video?
The 360° Video, 360-degree videos, also known as surround video, immersive videos or spherical videos, are video recordings where a view in every direction is recorded at the same time. Most of these videos are filmed with standard cameras that capture everything in the direction in which they're pointed. Once they're uploaded to a streaming website like YouTube, the steps for watching them are usually pretty simple: click the play button, sit back, and enjoy.
However, there's a newer technology that's changing these standards: 360° video. Unlike the videos described above, 360° video is recorded in all directions, giving you a complete 360-degree view. While watching these videos, you're able to control the viewing direction and watch the video from whatever perspective you'd like.
How do I watch 360° video?
360° videos are currently able to be uploaded to YouTube and Facebook and can be viewed on both computers and smartphones.
To watch a 360° video on a computer, simply click Play to start the video as you normally would. While it's playing, you can then click and drag anywhere on the video screen to change the viewing direction.
When using your smartphone to watch 360° videos, you don't even need to touch the screen. Simply move your phone to look around. However, you will need to use either the YouTube or Facebook app. If you try viewing them in your web browser, you won't be able to change the viewing direction.
Part 2: How to upscale the 360° video?
As mentioned at the beginning, most 360° videos look pixelated or blurry. And an AI video enhancer can clarify the movie and remove the blur.
Is AI Video Upscaling possible?
By raising the bit rate of the video, it is possible to slightly increase the visual quality. However, raising the bit rate of movies with resolution upscaled does not significantly improve their image quality or make the video clearer.
The good news is that upscaling software based on artificial intelligence technology has been developed, making it possible to increase the picture quality of DVDs as well as lower-quality movies or videos.
