CGV: Announcement of Topics for Bachelor and Master Theses in Summer Term 2022

With the new semester coming up, we are announcing current topics for Bachelor and Master theses in the areas of Computer Graphics, Geometry Processing and Visual Analytics, supported by the Institute of Compute Graphics and Knowledge Visualization together with Fraunhofer Austria.


Thomas Pock wants to bring color into videos.

Many black-and-white films are stored as historical cultural assets in archives worldwide. Saved from decay by digitization and often painstakingly restored, however, the subsequent colorization of films in cinema quality is still a point that proves to be very difficult - even though various techniques for this have been available for decades. Thomas Pock from the Institute of Computer Graphics and Vision, however, has developed a novel process that should reduce the immense amount of work involved in coloring historical films.
