Quantel implemented a feature in the old Paintbox that allowed a still
frame grab which would decrease the noise present in the frame buffer with
each following grab. It significantly cleaned up stills that could be
grabbed off of 1 inch type C. I don't have any idea what algorithm was
employed as I have never worked for nor received compensation from Quantel...
