Often imagery has to be enhanced and restored to bring out features not readily visible. Our team employs a suite of image enhancement techniques to maximize the amount of useful information that can be gleaned from video or still imagery.
Image enhancement involves changing the image brightness and contrast to bring out features not readily visible.
Restoration involves using image processing methods to correct for image degradation caused by issues such as motion blur or camera focus.
