The Video Technology Research Group (ViTech) was created in 2014 and it is with the Technological Development Center (CDTec) at Federal University of Pelotas (UFPel). ViTech is mainly composed of five Ph.D. full professors and many students in different levels of graduation (Ph.D., Master and Undergraduate students).

Due to the high quality of the scientific research, the ViTech works are published in relevant conferences such as IEEE International Conference on Image Processing (ICIP), IEEE International Symposium on Circuits and Systems (ISCAS), and IEEE International Conference on Electronics Circuits and Systems (ICECS). The works are also published in journals such as IEEE Transactions on Circuits and Systems for Video Technology (TCSVT), IEEE Transactions on Computer-Aided Design of Integrated Circuits and Systems (TCAD), and Journal of Real-Time Image Processing (JRTIP).

The relevant results produced by the ViTech have enabled the professor researchers to receive funds from Brazilian agencies to develop their research projects such as FAPERGS, CNPq, CAPES, FINEP and RNP.

ViTech researchers also collaborate with other institutions such as UFRGS, PUCRS, IFSul, and UFSC in Brazil and abroad with University of Lisbon, University of Coimbra, and Polytechnic Institute of Leiria.
