ClearTECH Suite

ClearTECH image enhancement solutions increase the capability of IR, CCD, and CMOS cameras.  DDC has a full line-up of IP including NUC, BPR, AGC, image stabilization, super-res, tracking, ranging, stereo, fusion, LAP, OpenGL graphics, and many others.  ClearTECH solutions provide superior imagery because DDC has extensive modular-but-customizable hardware acceleration at its fingertips. This is all possible because it taps the RAW sensor data - accessing the full dynamic range; our engineers also have extensive experience in image/video enhancement, and especially as they apply to embedded on-the-go applications.  Most sensor solutions today throw out considerable amounts of useful data before it is passed on to the user because they perform global contrast enhancements and/or compression, or other limiting algorithms.  This is the old way of performing this process. DDC ClearTECH solutions provide next generation hardware acceleration techniques to exploit a cameras dynamic range, exploit a camera's sensitivity, create more dynamic range when necessary, and otherwise optimize a camera or video system for maximal detail extraction or other parameters important for your application.

Enhance your sensor suite

Go small SWaP

Put your sensor or display on the network

The DDC ClearTECH Enhance is a small form factor real time video image enhancement board that improves the quality of existing sensor suites.  Many IR/CCD/CMOS sensor natively provide 12 - 16 bits of useful data.  However, almost all systems throw out all but 8 bits through their AGC process.  This results in images that have unnecessary over saturation and underexposed areas - reducing your visibility into key situations.  DDCs LAP, filter, and image stabilization algorithms are a differentiator and plugs the best possible imagery back into the video lineup.
Camera manufacturers may find that their next generation camera solutions will benefit from a full lineup of IP that features NUC, BPR, filtering, and Local Area Processing, of their 12+ bit sensor data.  DDC has created an ultra-small SWaP board that is designed to provide a leap forward in situational awareness via the next generation of IR sensors. Let us provide or create a small SWaP image processing platform for you.
Make your camera, sensor, or display (or other endpoint) plug-and play on the network. Next generation video sensor suites will provide network protocol intelligence - the ability to maintain quality of service.  DDC is a member of the AVNu alliance and has the first end to end EAVB (Ethernet Audio Video Bridge) solution.  This allows sensor suite providers or integrators responsible for contained Ethernet networks to provide QoS in a small form factor while providing complete connectivity for multiple video sources.
