ONE OF THE LARGEST, RUGGED 4K DISPLAYS ON THE MARKET
ZMicro’s Real-Time Enhanced Video (RTEV) technology improves visual clarity in live video.
It enables you to see better in challenging visibility conditions and discern important details that
might otherwise be missed and can be integrated into any rugged display.
Clarifier is an ultra-large convolution kernel algorithm that conducts locally-adaptive contrast enhancement. Using patented IP, each individual pixel is compared to its neighboring pixels and pixel values are adjusted to increase the subtle differences in pixel values – all in real-time. The Clarifier technology enables viewers to discern subtle differences in brightness and contrast that were previously difficult for the human eye to perceive. The result is a video clarification and enhancement that enables users and operators to see more detail.
True Color is a globally adaptive dehazing algorithm is designed to remove the detrimental effects of haze, fog, smoke, mist, dust or other contaminants and bring out the color in degraded video. Video degradation commonly occurs in two major components: (1) “Extinction”, i.e., attenuation (scattering, absorption, etc.) of light from the object(s) by the intervening medium, keeping some or all of it from reaching the camera, and (2) “Airlight”, i.e., ambient light arising from sources other than those which are in the field of view of the camera, being scattered into the camera’s aperture by interaction with the intervening medium, arriving at the camera travelling in a direction as if it was coming from the object(s) themselves. Both Airlight and Extinction factors in the equations governing how the processor attempts to remove these effects can be dependent on the wavelength (color) of light in the image, in consideration of the scene conditions, type and composition of the atmospheric or other medium and the physical processes involved therein.
The Expanded Sharpener algorithm is a locally adaptive operation implemented with a moderately sized convolution kernel. In addition to the traditional edge sharpening operation, our implementation also comprises a low spatial frequency suppression, and the capability to simultaneously smooth the very highest spatial frequencies to reduce undesirable noise. The result is a remarkable algorithm that highlights objects and features and helps bring out subtle details and variation in a video that may not otherwise be seen by a human.
ZMicro’s cutting-edge algorithms can all be used in conjunction with each other to obtain the best possible enhancement to real-time video. Each algorithm – Clarifier, True Color, and Expanded Sharpener – provide different complementary enhancement features and functionality that when used together provide remarkable improvements to visualization of details in video enabling viewers to see more detail in real-time.
