A former factory and Beijing landmark has been transfo

Several modern-looking buildings and a big lawn at its heart easily set Yongyuan apart from its hutong surroundings.
Yongyuan park sits on Xingfu Street in Beijing’s Dongcheng district where the Sanlu P上海419

上海419女神会所The Sanlu Plant’s Dabao skincare brand was a household name nationwide, and the plant develope

The restoration process starts with scanning the film negatives or prints into a digital pict上海419
ure and raw sound format. Then each frame of the scanned material undergoes an automated digital res
toration process that involves the correction of color, brightness, and contrast. The process also involves the digital removal of scratches and u上海419
nnecessary noises, restoration and remastering of sound, said Liu Junhui, a senior director from iQiyi.
Even with the aid of AI technologies, digital restoration of old productions is no mean feat, as上海419品茶微信
increasing the image resolution is one thing, but restoring its original texture is quite another, which
上海419requires technologies, as well as a craftsmanship spirit. For instance, 30-plus members of the Youku digital r
estoration team worked for as long as a month to fully restore the 1983 megahit, The Bund.
“Our team has made various attempts to enhance audiences’ viewing experience. If only the definition is increased through transcoding, audiences may feel that the ima上海419品茶微信
ges have been doctored through filters. So we went to great lengths to restore the texture that is unique to the pe
riod when the classical series was shot,” said Guo Linna, a senior visual optimization engineer from Youku.
Though Youku’s digital restoration team is made up of no more than 40 members who上海419
do not work full time, every week it can restore 100-plus episodes of old TV dramas.
Speaking of her original motivation, Guo said that she chose to restore those old TV series bec
上海419品茶微信ause on the one hand, she wanted the post-80s generation to have better access to recalling childhood memories, a

Rejuvenation of rural areas in China will not be achieved at the cost of damage to the environment, a top agricultural official said on Monday.上海419女神会所

The most recent admission came Saturd
ay, when British media reported that Michael Gove admitted to taking drugs on several occasions when he was a “young
journalist” two decades ago. He called it a “mistake” that he “deeply” regrets.
In a released excerpt from a book on Gove’s life, the se
cretary of state for environment, food and rural affairs is said to have confessed, while being quiz
zed by his leadership team, to consuming cocaine.
“He was firmly instructed not to give that answer in public, and told instead to fall back
on the words (former Prime Minister David) Cameron had used when he was running for leader, namely that pol
ticians are entitled to a private life before entering politics,” the Daily Mail reported off a passage from Owen Ben
nett’s book “Michael Gove: A Man In A Hurry.”
Gove and Bennett have not responded to CNN’s request for comment.
