Finally we turn to the utility of super-resolution/image upsampling. Aqueti's team believes that essentially all images on Flickr should be available for interactive service with server side upsampling, but as a first step to getting there we suggest integrating interactive super resolution in the Flickr mobile app. 

Here is our response to the applications suggested in Archie's email

- sending smaller images over the wire,  to be super-res'd on a smart client (mobile, tablet)

----- Aqueti response:  One has full control in this case over the server side coding and the client side super resolution, this situation is best handled by conventional compression/decompression algorithms, e.g. jpeg2000. 

- enhancing large images up to 4k images server-side 

------- Aqueti response: This is good use of server side upsampling and tiling. 

- enhancing older, smaller images server-side

------- Aqueti response: This is good use of server side upsampling and tiling. 

- super-res from multiple photos on high-speed mobile camera 

------- Aqueti response: This is good use of server side upsampling and tiling.  Peer-to-peer sharing and snapchat style interactive image service may be a big deal.

Next Steps

Upon review of these images and comments, I hope that you will agree that server side super resolution and interactive image servers will have major impact on Flickr's products. In keeping with our corporate focus on pushing the limits of image resolution, Aqueti has given considerable thought to the structure of online media and has developed our a team, roadmap and intellectual property to support our platform . We would be honored to help incorporate these strategies in Flickr's roadmap. 

As next steps, we propose (1.) execution of a nondisclosure agreement between Aqueti and Yahoo to enable more detailed knowledge sharing,  (2.) discussion of broad features of a business relationship to allow begin testing super-resolution and interactive features and (3.) specification of a particular initial project under which Aqueti would deliver to Yahoo and Flickr server processing and client display components.
