Industry Markets: Medical imaging, homeland security, aerospace, telecommunications
Technology Contact: Didier Leconte, Univalor, Canada
The technology is an image processing algorithm enhancing the quality of image and videos. The algorithm has a wide range of applications in post processing or real-time data treatment, ranging from homeland security to healthcare and digital still cameras. The inventors propose a solution that overpasses usual known methods (bilineair, bicubic) in time processing while providing also better resolutions.
Mr. Didier Leconte of Univalor recently provided Nano World News with several updates. “The algorithm has been tested with various types of images and videos. Considering the various applications, our next steps involve embedding the algorithm within a software for post-treatment applications and within an IP-core for real time processing.” Patents are pending in the U.S., Canada, and Japan, and “we engage discussions with various industry, and the technology is still available for licensing in different fields of use.”
