Abstract: We study maximizing vectors of Hankel operators with matrix-valued symbols. This study leads to a solution of the so-called recovery problem for unitary-valued functions and to a new approach to Wiener-Hopf factorizations for functions in a function space $X$ satisfying natural conditions. Finally, we improve earlier results of Peller and Young on hereditary properties of the operator of superoptimal approximation by analytic matrix functions.
