In addition, Imint announced that Vidhance solutions will come pre-optimised for use with the Snapdragon 778G Reference Design, the prototype hardware that is used by smartphone manufacturers to evaluate the platform’s capabilities and design their own mobile products.
The two companies had previously collaborated on a generation of video enhancement solutions utilizing the latest artificial intelligence and machine learning technologies. Those solutions, including Vidhance Selfie Mode and Vidhance Video Stabilization, which began to appear last year in smartphones containing various mobile platforms from Qualcomm Technologies, have now been further improved for use with Snapdragon 778G.
As part of this on-going collaboration, Imint, working with Qualcomm Technologies, has optimised support for all Vidhance video enhancement solutions. Chief among them are Vidhance Selfie Mode, which is optimised for use with Qualcomm Facial Recognition and the Qualcomm AI Engine to recognise smartphone users and keep them in the video frame, even when in motion; and Vidhance Video Stabilization with Active OIS, which works with a smartphone’s built-in sensors to anticipate camera movement and reduce it in real-time.
“The optimisation of Vidhance for use with the Snapdragon 778G Reference Design will make it easier and quicker for OEMs to create high-end smartphone video experiences,” said Andreas Lifvendahl, Chief Executive Officer of Imint.
Imint’s suite of Vidhance solutions also includes Vidhance Dynamic Motion Blur Reduction, Vidhance Field of View Correction, and Vidhance Horizon Correction. Vidhance solutions are used by leading smartphone manufacturers including: Motorola, Nokia, Sharp, Infinix, Tecno, Xiaomi and Vivo,
