Improving quality of videos taken with surveillance cameras?

Could one please recommend me a software that can help in improving quality of the videos taken with surveillance cameras at the point of seeing a face or a car number?

Thank you

Two things:

Thing one, for the guys here to give you effective help, you need to supply more technical information about your video source. Is it analogue (VHS tape?) or is it digital. And what is the format of the material (NTSC or PAL, interlaced or progressive, MPEG2 or something else).

Thing two. While I am no expert in this field, I would imagine that if this is for use for legal purposes (e.g. to provide evidence that could potentially ultimately be used in court), you might need to fulfil certain legal criteria related to the preservation of evidence. The use of specialist forensic software designed to provide something like a technical audit trail of some kind. Or use some kind of legally approved forensics service or leave it to the police. As I say, I know nothing about this, but I would advise you be really, really careful. Perhaps you should consult your lawyer to understand the proper legal implications and any requirements to need to fulfil.

Thing one, the format is various, includes multiple surveillance cameras set up by various institutions through the city.

Thing two, I am asking for such kind of institutions. I thought I would give it a try here and test some and see how it works and recommend something.

PS: I don't work for those institutions.
