The Algolith Story

Editor’s Backgrounder

Based in Montreal, Algolith is internationally recognized as a leading-edge developer of video image enhancement solutions. It possesses highly specialized expertise in image restoration, frame rate conversion, scaling, de-interlacing and noise reduction technology – and offers a broad range of products designed for the exacting needs of Digital TV consumers, Post-Production houses, Media Server Manufacturers, and IPTV and Digital Broadcasters.

Algolith was spun off in 2003 by a broadcast infrastructure company that helps major broadcast networks transition from analog to digital transmission. In the years since, Algolith has become a robust, unique company dedicated to developing products, based on an exceptional Intellectual Property (IP) portfolio, that significantly improve image quality in all formats. For example, Algolith’s specialized IP is incorporated into the design of Silicon Optix’s powerful Realta platform, a system-on-a-chip that sets a new benchmark standard of video excellence called Hollywood Quality Video, or HQVTM.

Algolith’s core IP-protected technologies are based upon years of applied research designing highly complex algorithmic formulas by an in-house talent pool of scientists, mathematicians and engineers. Simply put, Algolith’s team provides the finest scaling, de-interlacing, inverse telecine, MPEG artifact reduction and noise reduction solutions, as these are the essential elements of any quality video processing workflow.

Algolith’s expertise lies in specialties that are complex and difficult to master for anyone that has not, like Algolith, been involved with the broadcast video or film/video post-production industries. Film and video content have idiosyncrasies only experts can presume to understand. For example, reducing noise or de-interlacing a video sequence without removing details requires complex multi-dimensional digital signal processing techniques and a deep knowledge of the human visual system.

In our new world of digital video, which is characterized by the ubiquitous use of compression and the simultaneous presence of SD and HD video formats, any processing or delivery means must cope with varied problems introduced by overly compressed content, and the display or profusion of distinct video formats – problems for which Algolith has developed market-proven solutions.

For the Home Theater and Digital TV market, Algolith manufactures video processors and scalers – the Dragonfly, Mosquito, Mosquito HDMI™ and Flea – that dramatically heighten image quality using proprietary Algolith technology, including its 3D Dynamic and MPEG noise reduction, block artifact reduction, and de-interlacing and scaling technologies.

In the Post-Production sector, Algolith provides media content creators with sophisticated tools to restore image quality and convert between different video formats, for example, between film and video, or standard TV and HDTV. Its advanced PROVIDEO Solutions fulfill the demanding requirements of a wide variety of digital video applications, providing the finest scaling, de-interlacing, inverse telecine, and MPEG artifact reduction and noise reduction solutions.
Algolith is dedicated to providing high quality services and innovative products that dramatically improve image quality in all formats and consistently exceed its customers’ expectations. For further technical information, visit
