MotionDSP announces certification of Ikena ISR real-time FMV image processing on GE’s MAGIC1 Rugged Display Processor with NVIDIA GPUs at GEOINT 2010
MotionDSP, an industry leader in advanced image processing, has certified its real-time full motion video (FMV) image processing software on GE’s MAGIC1 Rugged Display Processor, a compact, power-efficient hardware PC platform specifically designed for military applications.  
GE’s MAGIC1 platform enables Ikena ISR’s real-time FMV processing capability to be deployed directly on the ISR platform (manned/unmanned). GE’s small form factor MAGIC1 combines state-of-the-art CPU technology with the latest NVIDIA GPUs (Graphics Processing Unit) in a fanless, rugged form factor.   
Come see Ikena ISR running on the MAGIC1 in NVIDIA’s booth #445 at GEOINT 2010 in New Orleans, November 1-4 2010.
Demos of Ikena ISR take place at 1pm on November 3rd and 4th and on request.

Ikena ISR

Full Motion Video (FMV) frequently suffers from quality issues that obscure actionable intelligence. Whether the platform is a UAV or surveillance camera, problems like low resolution, shake, poor lighting, and noise artifacts can afflict even high-end systems, thanks to less-than-ideal capture conditions and/or atmospheric distortion.

Ikena ISR Graphic

MotionDSP’s Ikena ISR software uses patented super-resolution technology to automatically address these problems in software running on off-the-shelf Windows PCs. Ikena ISR is the fastest, easiest, and most powerful video forensics and exploitation solution, uniquely able to provide real-time results on live video feeds. A demonstration video of Ikena ISR is available here.  For more information, see the Ikena ISR product page

GE Magic1

The MAGIC1 Rugged Display Processor is available in three chassis configurations: Base-plate cooled for when a suitable cold-plate is available, convection cooled by means of integral fins or forced air cooled through hollow sidewall heat exchangers for when no external cooling mechanism is available. For more information, see the GE website.
