Deinterlacer Submission

To submit, you can either send us any executable file or code of your deinterlacer, or follow these 3 simple steps

1. Download the interlaced video here.
We have more available formats, if YUV is not suitable. Just click on this text
There are 3 available options:
    a. Download frames of the video sequence in .png format here
    b. Download .yuv video file generated from frames via

    ffmpeg -i %04d.png -c:v rawvideo -pix_fmt yuv444p sequences.yuv

    c. Download lossless encoded .mkv video generated from frames via

    ffmpeg -i %04d.png -c:v libx264 -preset ultrafast -crf 0 -pix_fmt yuv444p lossless.mkv


2. Deinterlace downloaded video
The details, which may help you
    TFF interlacing was used to get interlaced sequence from GT
    The video consists of 28 videos, each separated by 5 black frames. Black frames are ignored while measuring

3. Send us an email to with the following information:
    A. Name of the deinterlacing method that will be specified in our benchmark
    B. Link to the cloud drive (Google Drive, OneDrive, Dropbox, etc.), containing deinterlaced video.
    C. (Optional) Any additional information about the method
    Click here to see what may be included in additional information
      Technical information about deinterlaced video (e.g. colorspace, file-type, codec)
      The name of the theoretical method used
      Full name of the deinterlacing method or product
      The version that was used
      The parameter set that was used
      Any other additional information
      A link to the code of your deinterlacing method, if it is open-source
      A link to the paper about your deinterlacing method
      A link to the documentation of your deinterlacing method. For example, this is suitable for deinterlacing methods that are implemented as a part of a video processing framework.
      A link to the page, where users can purchase or download your product (for example, VirtualDub Plugin)
    D. (Optional) If you would like us to tune the parameters of your deinterlacing method, you should give us an ability to
    launch it. You can do it by sending us a code or an executable file, providing us a free test version of your product, or any
    other possible way, that is convenient for you

Our policy:

  • We won't publish the results of your method without your permission.
  • We share only public samples of our dataset as it is private.
