Camera Image processing is becoming increasingly critical with the development and proliferation of imaging-enabled consumer electronic devices. Because of their performance, flexibility, and reasonable cost, camera integration / image sensor integration and camera image processing algorithms are used extensively in applications ranging from consumer, computer vision, industrial, defense, multimedia, sensor networks, surveillance, automotive to astronomy.
Vision systems, smart cameras and various other vision sensors solve camera image processing tasks in real time. Camera and related sensors play a key role in the performance of any imaging device. Proper camera integration including all the hardware and software components ensure optimal system performance. Mistral’s camera expertise covers image sensor integration, Camera Image Processing, camera integration, MIPI/CSI Camera Sensor Integration, implementation of coding standards, development of camera interfaces, image/video compression algorithms, image signal processing and related system software development.
The availability of advanced imaging sensors and integration of sensing, connectivity and AI has transformed camera and imaging systems. This has also, however, brought in innumerable challenges to product developers w.r.t image quality. In addition to each unique combination of sensor, lens and processor, the captured image may have unnecessary components from limited lighting and other environmental conditions. At Mistral, we have the camera expertise to understand the nuances of Camera Image Processing and deliver the most optimal image processing solutions for customers developing next-gen camera products for various applications.
