Video processing development kit aims at security
“Halo RPDS 1.0 provides customers with a means of evaluating the effectiveness of RFEL’s video enhancement technology,” said company CEO Alex Kuhrt. “It is a plug-and-play platform that enables customers to input video, try-out various video processing algorithms, and immediately see the quality of the video on a monitor.”
The Isle-of-Wight-based firm specialises in developing digital signal processing algorithms, and the hardware on which they run.
While usually offering a bespoke service, last year it launched a range of ruggedised pre-package video processing products called Halo. These offer real-time high-definition video enhancement – including stabilisation, adaptive contrast enhancement and multi-band fusion; as well as control over pan tilt and zoom camera motion.
To broaden its appeal, Halo comes in three form-factors, and it is intended for new designs as well as up-grading existing installations. Use is proposed in: fixed installation covert CCTV monitoring and surveillance, unmanned aerial vehicles and multi-band TV/infra-red imaging.
RPDS will be officially launched at Counter Terror Expo in London (29-30 April).
