INFOTECH North America and Reflected Light Science have begun commercial production of the Detail Enhancement Filter (DEF) technology. It works with real time images and video feeds as well as existing data. It is a plug and play hardware solution that allows details which are not viewable in a scene to be examined without out altering the source.
It has great implications for security and surveillance application at schools, hospitals, churches, public buildings, highways, bridges and military bases. It is also being used in the biomedical image community to reduce the number of images required for diagnosis and can lower the exposure to radiation for the patients and health care workers alike.
Any images that are contain content that is either too bright or dark, or has details obscured by rain, fog, snow or atmosphere can be corrected in real time. It is manufactured in the US and we are looking for market segment partners as end users or distributors of the technology.
