Digital rear-view mirrors enable night vision or act as a glare shield through the clever use of HDR-imaging, while front-facing cameras provide features like collision avoidance and intelligent speed adaptation. The blind spot detection improves safety while changing lanes and advanced image processing algorithms are able to spot pedestrians or traffic signs early on.
But these systems face tough certification procedures and must meet hard real-time requirements when they feed the car’s electronics with input data while simultaneously recording the resulting system response. This is where our expertise with Hardware-in-the-Loop systems applies in order to ensure reproducible results, leading to maximum system stability and safety.
From the initial sensor readout to the final display presentation, we provide the best image processing chain possible. Whether you require encoding of secure HD streams or frame grabbing of impeccable still images, our imaging expertise ensures visuals of the highest quality.
The medCAM is the systematical adaptation of our successful sinaCAM concept to the requirements of medical applications. It is available as a stand-alone product but the technology can also be integrated in new OEM based systems. Its tiny remote camera heads are ideal for microscopic recordings, for example to document eye surgeries in 3D for teaching purposes.
Another practical example is our SoC-to-Go platform, which is designed as a modular image processing system capable of high-performance DSP applications, making it ideal for real-time processing and analysis tasks by using advanced pattern recognition algorithms.
4K resolution, stereoscopic 3D, direct recording to formats like DNxHD and ProRes or the streaming of uncompressed video data over distances up to 180 meters: these are just a few of the challenges we have gladly accepted in past years.
Our vast experience from designing the digital system core of the ARRI Alexa, a true Hollywood mainstay, and our sinaCAM, a remote head 2D/3D camera system, makes us ideal partners for advanced camera development. From sensor linearization and image enhancement to HD-SDI outputs and real-time compression for digital recording formats, we cover the entire image processing chain of digital cameras.
Our own solutions for processing steps like de-mosaicing, defective pixel correction and scaling produce results satisfy even the most demanding of today’s filmmakers.
