Mistral’s Camera Expertise including Camera image processing algorithms, CMOS Sensor Tuning Expertise and camera integration services for and single & multi- camera sensor integration enabling a wide range of embedded devices in automotive, medical, consumer, industrial, drones, defense, security and surveillance applications.

OVERVIEW

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.

Camera Integration Services

Camera and related sensors play a key role in the performance of any imaging device. Proper integration of all the components, like camera, hardware, software 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 understand the nuances of Camera Image Processing and delivers the most optimal solutions for customers developing next-gen camera products for various applications.

Camera Image Processing

Mistral’s camera expertise includes camera integration, Camera Image Processing, CMOS Sensor Tuning and other image sensor related capabilities enable the new generation of smart gadgets that represent a quantum leap in sophistication. As part of our camera sensor tuning and Camera Image Processing expertise we ensure IS and IQ tuning addressing maximize HDR, minimize Low light, optimize AE, AWB, color accuracy, tone curves, contrast resolution, objective metrics, subjective testing and field and drive testing.
