Spectral Edge enhances smartphone camera capabilities
Spectral Edge has unveiled the first three products in its Phusion for Photography suite, incorporating cutting edge image fusion technology designed for integration into smartphone image processing.
Phusion makes it possible to dynamically merge multiple versions of digital photos together to create a more detailed but also a more pleasing and natural looking image.
Spectral Edge says the outcome is better quality photos preferred by most viewers, without requiring expensive commercial image enhancement software that requires significant processing power.
Photo and camera quality are becoming vital factors in consumer handset choice, which is why smartphone manufacturers have increasingly invested in imaging technology.
Phusion seamlessly integrates with existing imaging pipelines, without requiring consumers to download additional apps, helping manufacturers deliver noticeably superior standard photos to end users.
“With smartphones increasingly the camera of choice for consumers, manufacturers are focusing heavily on delivering the best possible imaging technology to their customers,” said Rhodri Thomas, CEO, Spectral Edge.
“Our easy-to-integrate Phusion product suite dynamically transforms the images that their phones create, without requiring additional editing software or download to a PC. Our first product, Phusion Clarity, delivers instant, beautiful images, that consumers consistently rank higher than unprocessed alternatives.”
Spectral Edge was spun out of the Colour Group of the School of Computing Sciences at the University of East Anglia in March 2014, and received £1.5 million funding in 2016.
