Paper Abstract

Automatic blotch removal in old movies is important in film restoration. Blotches are black or white spots randomly occurring along the movie frames. Removing these spots are obtained by first automatically detecting the blotches then interpolating them using the spatial and temporal information in current, succeeding, and preceding frames. In this paper, simplified Rank Order Detector (sROD) is used with tweaked parameters to over detect the blotches, Epitome Analysis is used for interpolating the detected blotches.
