Madonna /// Drowned World Tour /// AI HD Interpretation upscaled

TRACK list below

I used Artificial Intelligence powered software (and other professional tools and software) to enhanced this footage.

It is therefore presented here completely reworked visually in a form that didn’t exists before.

The footage I’m working on this time is SD, standard definition, NTSC.
The concert was shoot in NTSC 29,97i. This version comes from the official Video DVD.
The show was shot and broadcast interlaced (as the HBO original files proves it) and later de-interlace after re-editing and grading for the DVD release.
This de-interlacing left some heavy marks in the footage.
Also, the reworked DVD result is unfortunately very blurry.

I’m not very happy with the result here as it contains a lot of artifacts due to this original de-interlacing, but indeed the look, the grading and the editing of this version is quite excellent … it was worth trying.
You can clearly sees here the limitations of the software, but anyway … enjoy!

The technology itself, a software using artificial intelligence, makes the result unique and transformed. It is more an interpretation than an upscale.
It’s only purpose is to demonstrate the power and sometimes limitations of artificial intelligence in video post production.
