Video Fidelity Improvement
Full Motion Video (FMV) suffers from a variety of challenges. Video taken from large stand-off distances is subject to atmospheric effects and low resolution. Video from small unmanned aerial systems (SUAS) such as drones can be subject to high frequency jitter; and low bitrate communications can create noise and compression artifacts. Holistic Video Fidelity Improvement Improving the quality of FMV requires a suite of sophisticated algorithms to address each challenge. Ikena ISR’s suite of real-time image processing algorithms address all these issues at once, and in real-time. MotionDSP’s massively multi-frame stabilization algorithm corrects the high frequency jitter; adaptive contrast lets you see into the shadows; and super-resolution re-constructs the signal removing noise and compression artifacts. These capabilities need to operate on live feeds, not on recorded data, after the fact. This is where MotionDSP differs from other options. Ikena ISR accepts a live 30-frame-per-second video feed (SD or HD), whether analog, digital, or IP, processes it in less than 300 milliseconds, and displays it to the analyst’s screen. And this can all happen on an off-the-shelf laptop running Windows.
