In reference to the patent: WO2016186925A1
We claim: 1. A method of performing upscaling, the method comprising: parsing an input video; breaking the input video into individual frames; performing upscaling on the individual frames to produce upscaled frames; and stitching the upscaled frames together to produce an upscaled video
Does this mean the entire post production industry will have to pay royalties for standard workflow used for the past 25 years?
The obvious workflow claimed by the so called inventors has been in use for decades. If they are successful in sliding this extremely broad patent application through the review process will they legally be in a position to sue every post production company that continues to upscale video?
