Product Offering

IRIS-EnLight (low light video enhancement)

IRIS-EnLight exploits sophisticated image and video processing technologies to enable high quality video under challenging lighting conditions in real-world applications like mobile phones, surveillance cameras and automotive. Images and videos captured in low-light conditions are facing two problems: Insufficient visual information and excessive noise. The IRIS-EnLight core simultaneously addresses these, in order to reach a clear and properly illuminant output.

IRIS-Enlight is not based in an HDR approach thus it does not suffer from the limitation of multi-frame HDR techniques (blurring, ghosting, etc). To this end, and due to the highly innovative techniques employed in this IP core, IRIS-EnLight is able to process video streams in real time and under any motion conditions, without limiting the freedom of the camera user. However, although it is not an HDR module, IRIS-EnLight has inherent HDR characteristics, being able to work evenly well in high dynamic range scenes.

Moreover, by using EnLight, integrators can significantly leverage the functionality and response of the device cameras, by allowing higher shutter speeds, which in other case would lead to darker results and inferior image quality.

IRIS-EnLight has been optimized for the challenging computational environment of mobile devices and can process video streams in real-time and with low-power. It incorporates a bundle of innovative color tone-mapping techniques as well as a proprietary video de-noising system providing high-quality results.

IRIS-ViSTA (video stabilization)

IRIS-VISTA is a unique video stabilization software module bringing advanced imaging capabilities to embedded systems. It is a flexible and scalable solution fully optimized to run in real-time using minimal processing workloads and very low memory bandwidth.

IRIS-VISTA has been optimized for the challenging computational environment of mobile devices and can process video in real-time. The combination of high-quality results and low computational requirements as well as low power consumption makes IRIS-VISTA an excellent solution for mobile appliances.

In addition to motion compensation, IRIS-VISTA allows for the correction of rolling shutter distortion which results in geometric image distortions and in the so called «jelly effect», often present in videos captured with CMOS camera sensors.
