Video20/20®: It’s Like Lasik for Video
When you make a significant investment in video equipment for security or other monitoring purposes, you want high quality video. Unfortunately, that isn’t always the case. Variables such as how and where cameras are mounted, the weather and other environmental factors, conspire to greatly reduce video quality to where it can be almost unusable.
Video20/20 is like Lasik for video imagery. It improves the quality and usefulness of video captured by your cameras, which must often operate in less-than-ideal real world conditions. It corrects for problems such as camera shake, environmental haze, or sun glare and glint that can limit the utility of video captured from cameras mounted on towers, buildings, or on moving vehicles.
Whether on land or on water, Video20/20 clears up and sharpens streaming and recorded video so that you get a clearer picture of what is in view, and get more out of your video analysis tools.
What can Video20/20 do?
You probably know how much video imagery quality can vary, depending on the type and resolution of the camera, where and how it’s mounted, not to mention the variables of weather and environmental conditions.
Video20/20 helps you overcome these problems by greatly improving the quality of your streaming or recorded video impacted by these variables. It stabilizes the video from a camera shaking due to wind, corrects for glint and glare caused by sunlight relfectivity, and cuts through haze or fog and corrects blurred, hazy or “nosiy” video.
Bottom line, Video20/20 provide you with one big benefit: High quality results from low-quality video footage.
How does it work?
Video20/20 operates like a network applicance, much like a router or network storage device. This makes it easy to use because it is accessible via a web interface using your browser from a computer or smart phone.
When you want to use Video20/20 you automatically create what we call a “VisionAgent” by specifying the source of the video (i.e., URL or file location), selecting the image correction to use (e.g., stabilization and denoising), and designating the type of output you want (e.g., a streaming URL). You then pick up the enhanced video output on that URL address via your own application or via the Video20/20 web interface from the device of your choice.
