Today’s smartphone cameras have almost reached professional standard. But video lags way behind; compared with professional films, the difference is gigantic. Because no matter how stable you hold your smartphone, your video will still wobble. Vidhance smartphone video stabilizer solves that problem. Now your videos will look smooth and stable – right from the very beginning.
Proper video stabilization is not merely a question of dampening motion with low-pass filters or applying technologies originally developed for still images. A good solution should encourage users to roam around and feel liberated, safe in the knowledge that the stabilization completely removes unintentional motion while only keeping the intentional parts – and all in real time. That solution is called Vidhance – Imint’s smartphone video stabilizer for Android.
WHAT IS IT
We have been working with real-time video stabilization since 2007. At that time, this was for professional use, such as military drones and other remotely controlled equipment. So it was natural that ‘true’ video stabilization was the first feature we brought to the smartphone market. Where the professional film crew arrives with tripods and dollies, ordinary consumers can now create dynamic video thanks to a piece of clever software running silently on their phone – the smartphone video stabilizer Vidhance.
- Real-time smartphone video stabilizer
- Superior to market-leading smartphone solutions
- Supports 4K resolution
- Supports high frame rates
HOW DOES IT WORK
- Vidhance cancels out unintended motion, wobbling and swaying, keeping only intended motion.
- Our smartphone video stabilizer is optimized for real-life scenarios such as walking, running, skiing, panning, etc.
- High precision even in low light.
- Low and flexible latency.
The Vidhance stabilization platform is a foundation on which a rich set of optional features can added to further enhance the video recording or consuming experience.
Vidhance Dynamic Motion Blur Reduction
The Vidhance Dynamic Motion Blur Reduction (VDMBR) minimizes the effect of motion blur of a stabilized video in a dynamic way by tuning different parameters based on the knowledge gained from performing the stabilization and hence take in to account the movement and lighting in the scenario.
By applying this feature on top of Vidhance Video Stabilization, Vidhance can deliver even sharper and undistorted output videos.
Vidhance Time Lapse
Vidhance Time Lapse is a cinematic method which gives the user an accelerated view of the recorded video. The Time Lapse feature uses the Vidhance stabilization feature and is supplemented with an additional spatial component for a superior end result. It becomes a cool feature that allows users to create their own stabilized time lapsed videos. By using Vidhance Time Lapse, users can create a more stable time-lapse video. It increases the cinematic effects and result videos’ quality.
Vidhance Stabilization gives users unsurpassed stabilization. However, when the user records a fully zoomed in video, even the slightest instability will be magnified. The Vidhance Zoom feature will stabilize a zoomed in video in real-time. At the same time, Vidhance Zoom increases the user experience of the pinch-zoom gesture by making it much smoother than the normal experience.
Stabilization in post processing mode
Stabilization can optionally also execute in post-procesing mode, i.e. the stabilization algortihms are applied on an already recorded video at night or when the phone is idling. This opens up the posibility to apply the Vidhance stabilization algorithms also on low-end devices with less processing power.
HOW TO GET IT
There are several ways to acquire Vidhance technology. But since we are perfectionists, one feature is common to all; the integration will run smoothly.
Today you can get Vidhance integrated as a software layer around the camera driver, but soon you’ll also find it in different apps. We work with an open API and offer a rich level of configurations through an SDK. A standard CPU/GPU works just fine, so there are hardly any hardware dependencies or minimal requirements to worry about. We work determined every day to withhold Vidhance position as the best smartphone video stabilizer around.
