Enhanced Digital Images and Videos

Those who do graphic design or work with images & video regularly will be extremely interested in new software to enhance images. MotionDSP Inc. will release a much cheaper version of the Ikena (about $7,700), called vReveal (about $50). The professional software of Ikena is mainly used by forensic & police departments to sharpen images for law enforcement purposes, such as make blurred license plates readable in blurry photos.

vReveal will not do as much as the full version of Ikena, but it will be able to stabilize shaky, remove graininess & pixelation, improve low resolution, brighten dark images & video, sharpen blurred videos, and reduce noise from home video. According to the New York Times, MotionDSP has technology, now being tested, to clean up live video as it streams to the viewer.
