Swimming in Sensors, Drowning in Data

Dan Olds from Gabriel Consulting Group shares his amazement from a GTC 2012 talk by MotionDSP.

Cleaning up and enhancing video is a tall order, compute-wise… But I just saw a demo of that in a GTC12 session run by MotionDSP. Their specialty is processing video streams from mobile platforms (think drones and airplanes) on the fly. We’re talking full motion, 30 frames per second video streams that are enhanced, cleaned up, and highly analyzable in real time. The amount of processing they’re doing is incredible. Lighting is enhanced, edges are enhanced, jitter is taken out, and the on-screen metadata (time, location, speed, etc.) is masked… The effect is profound. In the demo, what was once just a vague gray ship (which seemed to be vibrating like a can in a paint shaker) was clarified so that you could easily see what kind of ship it was and also see two suspicious figures milling around on deck. To me, it looked like there were enough pixels to enhance the video even further – to the point where we could identify the figures.”
