Mediatek and Imint cooperation to improve the quality of filming in smartphones
According to Andreas Lifvendahl, the CEO of Imint, Mediatek chips are ranked third in the world in terms of abundance, and it can be said that one out of every three smartphones in the world It is equipped with MediaTek chipsets. On the other hand, Imint technology is currently active in more than 250 million smartphone devices and has gradually found its way into other products such as modular cameras, wearable cameras and drones. That being said, the collaboration between the two companies could bring about a big revolution in smartphone video recording capabilities. Of course, the collaboration between Mediatek and Imint does not mean that all devices equipped with future Mediatek chipsets will be made with Vidhance software. Rather, by virtue of this collaboration, Imint will have access to MediaTek’s software packages and specialized support, and in this way, if smartphone manufacturers wish, they can integrate Vidhance into MediaTek’s chips more quickly.
If a smartphone manufacturer wants to use Imint technology in its products, the video recorded with the phone’s camera will be improved in 4 ways. In other words, the smartphone can access 4 software features, which are mentioned below:
This keyword is short for Dynamic Motion Blur Reduction and according to Imint’s claim, it can minimize the effect of motion blur.
– Super Stabilization
This feature, by removing unwanted camera shakes, can perform the action of shaking well and to the extent of sports cameras.
As there are many zooms and switches between different cameras during the filming, there are disturbances in the final video. According to Imint’s claim, the FOVC feature, which is short for Field of View Correction, can eliminate these image disturbances.
HC is short for Horizon Correction and can automatically align the tilted horizon line in videos.
According to experts who used to work with smartphones Pixel 2 are familiar with Vidhance technology, this technology is really effective in improving the quality of filming. It is interesting to know, a while ago Imint announced its cooperation with Qualcomm and Vidhance technology in the Snapdragon 865 has also appeared. Due to the cooperation between these two companies, Selfie Mode technology (from the Vidhance software suite) is optimized for the Snapdragon 865 chip using the artificial intelligence-based facial recognition technology in Qualcomm’s new ISP (i.e. Spectra 480).
According to one of the spokespersons of Imint, the name of the first device that uses the Mediatek chipset with Vidhance technology will be announced in October. Not to mention, considering the rumors that Huawei might switch to MediaTek, Huawei may continue to use Imint’s video stabilization technology.
