Proprietary Imaging Technologies
Empower’s proprietary real time Image Signal Correction (ISC) technologyis comprised of a fine-tuned high power single board computer, Empower’s proprietary LEOs (Linux Embedded Operating System) and high performance image processing software. The proprietary high performance image processing software provides real-time dehazing, deblurring, dewarping, denoising, color and contrast enhancement functions utilizing the powerful Empower embedded computing hardware. The technology is suitable for cameras deployed indoors or outdoors in harsh environments under any lighting condition. Empower’s proprietary real time Image Signal Correction Technology reduces any fogged up image due to fog, smog, smoke, dust, rain, snow or heat waves to clarify any images enabling the monitor of the live situation to see clearly and thus make a better decision. The sales and marketing initiative is targeted at major defense contractors, imaging equipment manufacturers, automotive companies, government agencies, first responder, homeland security, military, security and surveillance companies.
Empower’s Image Motion Stabilization (IMS) Technology uses Empower’s latest embedded processing technology and video stabilization algorithm to create a state of the art real time video motion stabilizer. There are many stabilizers in the market that can remove shaky or translational movement. However, the image is still blurry due to uncontrolled camera motions such as shaking and rolling (rotational) movements resulting from strong winds and vibration. IMS has a built-in software algorithm and a powerful embedded computing device to remove any shaking (translational) and rolling (rotational) motions. These motions are the most common problem for cameras mounted in manned/unmanned military, security, and civilian aerial, ground, or marine vehicles. Also affected are outdoor security/surveillance cameras mounted on poles or fixtures attached to a structure to monitor roads, bridges, rail tracks, building/site perimeter (e.g. hospital, reservoir, chemical plant, power station, or nuclear plant).
The need for image motion stabilization is essential to eliminate the effects of undesired camera motions so operators or analytics software can see a stable image of the live or captured video to take appropriate action.
