Changing How Machines See the World
Lolaark Vision is changing the way machines see the world.
It’s a tech company creating software to make photographs, recorded videos, and even real-time video easier to view.
As Lolaark Vision says, this software isn’t a luxury — it’s the next step in an evolution of live video stream restoration.
Increasingly, human vision is being replaced or complemented by camera vision. Operations such as self-driving cars, drones, security and surveillance, underwater inspections, and medical imaging often use cameras and real-time video.
These use-cases represent several massive markets. For example:
• The autonomous car market is projected to reach $556 billion by 2026.
• Video surveillance is projected to become a $144 billion market by 2027.
• Drones will become a $63 billion market by 2025.
• And medical imaging is already a $16 billion global market.
These industries rely on accurate, clear camera views to provide the necessary visibility. Many times, visibility isn’t just required for efficiency — it’s necessary to save lives.
The problem is that most imaging operations can’t handle poor conditions, impacted by glare, fog, rain, snow, murky water, or even a lack of light. Any of these variables can significantly reduce visibility and hinder a camera’s performance.
The challenge is to find fast and efficient ways to improve visibility. Lolaark Vision is ready to meet this challenge.
This company has created software that make cameras see clearly in real-time. Its technology can be applied to any high-definition (HD) camera without special optical instrumentation. And it can have an impact on all of the industries mentioned above. For example:
For self-driving cars, Lolaark Vision’s software can assist Artificial Intelligence-based autopilot systems by improving the visual quality of cameras. It can help a human or computer detect objects on the road.
Its technology can greatly enhance the quality of surveillance and security footage, helping users identify faces or objects captured on tape.
For marine operations, cameras can now capture clear live-stream video underwater. And in biomedical imaging, this company’s software can enhance visibility for scans and medical cameras.
Lolaark's target customers are businesses in these markets that use cameras for everyday applications.
The company has developed mathematical models and algorithms for its technology, as well as working prototypes for both real-time and “offline” visibility enhancement.
Its live video prototypes can process 720p video at 25 frames per second in real-time. And its offline prototype can process videos up to 4k resolution and 60 frames per second.
Lolaark has a provisional patent covering its software, and aims to make its technology available by 2023.
