Below are several examples of clips with visible noise of different
nature. Generally, noise can be brought in by the video camera sensor and signal amplifier, by electric interference, by compression,
etc. Neat Video can significantly improve the quality of such video by
reducing the objectionable noise.
Video from a digital video camera: digital noise
This video contains heavy digital noise produced by the
camera working in a high-gain mode. Neat Video reduces this noise, preserves
the underlying details and makes the clip usable:

Note: Most video compression methods work better on noise-free video data,
so the filtered version of such a clip can be encoded to a significantly
smaller file. Therefore, Neat Video helps to clean up the video
and at the same time to make the resulting video file smaller.
Video scanned from old film: dust and scratches
This clip has been produced by digitizing old film-based records
containing multiple scratches and dust particles. Neat Video's Dust
and Scratches filter reduces those elements while preserving details:
This video clip has been recorded by a mobile device working in time-lapse
mode. The small side of the sensor as well as the low light shooting conditions
caused the strong digital noise in the clip. Neat Video
is efficient at cleaning up that noise:
Video captured by a digital TV-tuner: noise and compression artifacts
This clip contains
strong visible noise introduced by the air transmission of TV signal
and further aggravated by the TV-tuner software's compression. Neat Video
reduces the noise and produces a much cleaner video clip.
Video from a digital TV-tuner: noise and periodic interference
clip contains the noise and radio interference from the air
transmittion. The interference has a periodic structure (visible as the
banding in the original version). Neat Video clears these noise elements,
preserves and reveals true details and produces a clean video output.
(Neat Video) "reduced the noise by an incredible
amount and made the footage much better", Patrick Lawler
The original 1080p clip contains strong noise produced by the 7D DSLR
camera working in high ISO mode and in low light conditions. There are
also compression artifacts. Neat Video clears the objectionable noise
producing a much cleaner HD clip.
