Super-Resolution Allows Doctors to See More with Smallest Cameras

The image quality of endoscopy cameras is fundamentally limited by the constrained camera size and the lighting is limited by the heat emission at the distal tip. This leads to the tradeoff between very low resolution with acceptably low noise and higher (but still low) resolution with a stronger noise level. Almalence Super-Resolution is a […]

Like every high-end smartphone, iPhone […]

Google Super Resolution Zoom: Good Start but not There Yet

Our first testing of Google’s super-resolution zoom recently announced in Pixel 3 shows that it indeed can restore some image details, but is still behind the best in class solutions. Compared to the “normal” digital zoom, which is basically an upscaling plus edge enhancement, Google’s zoom reveals some details that are indistinguishable in the “normal” image: ex1-digital.png,ex1-google-right.png […]

Accurate Eye Imitation for VR/AR Display Testing

When it comes to VR/AR HMD objective testing, you need an “eye” which is much more than simply a digital camera. Besides having the entrance pupil, focal length, and aperture similar to those of a human eye to see as a human eye, the imitation must be properly perceived by the eye-tracking modules. Meet the […]
