4K resolution, stereoscopic 3D, direct recording to formats like MXF and ProRes or the streaming of video data over Gigabit Ethernet or PCIe® cable are just some of the challenges that we have met in the past few years.
But these days it’s not just the movie makers behind blockbuster cinema who make the highest demands on professional video, camera and studio technology. Innovative companies in high-end technology fields like medical devices, digital microscopy and stereoscopy, or in areas like industrial inspection or display technology are catching up to them. For them we develop tailor-made imaging solutions of superior quality.
Our many years of experience in connection with our cross-sector know-how make us ideal partners for demanding camera development. We have demonstrated this with the development of the digital system core of the ARRI ALEXA, a real Hollywood mainstay, and the complete system design of our own sinaCAM, a remote head 2D/3D camera system. Whether in 3D or 4K, we have the image processing know-how and the streaming and recording solutions to meet your technological demands.
We implement best image quality with an optimal use of resources, no matter in which field of application.
With our own algorithms for image processing steps like defective pixel correction, de-mosaicing or image enhancement we achieve excellent results using highly efficient FPGA- or software-based solutions. Our image signal processing (ISP) pipeline can be configured in flexible ways to meet your requirements regarding resolution, frame rate and number of parallel outputs. Using FPGAs we implement all common or specific input and output interfaces, from LVDS to CSI-2® up to multi-Gigabit interfaces like DisplayPort™, HDMI® or UHD-SDI. In case of customized embedded electronics solutions with SoCs, FPGAs or CPUs we support you from the selection of components to the commissioning of prototypes.
