and Security Agencies Using New Photo Enlargement Technology to Improve
A new photo enlargement technology called Imagener by Kneson Software
is helping homeland security professionals hold down costs and improve
image content identification simultaneously. Surveillance photos often
need to be digitally improved and enlarged to be useful. Imagener enlarges
and maintains image detail allowing better identification of evidence
in surveillance image data.
San Diego, CA (PRWEB) May 9, 2005 -- Homeland security professionals
need better identification tools while holding down costs. A new photo
enlargement product called Imagener is helping them do just that. Many
digital photo software tools have limited ability to enlarge images clearly,
even high-end software products.
Surveillance images become too grainy to be useful at some level of
enlargement depending on the quality and size of the beginning image.
Imagener maintains the visual quality of the image allowing homeland
security professionals to accurately identify more image content.
"We have customers that use Imagener for enlarging and enhancing
photos obtained from surveillance cameras mounted in stores and around
warehouses," said Donald Henderson, president of Kneson Software. "It
allows them to obtain better detail information for more positive identification
of subjects in the images. Other customers in investigation and security
companies capture images of license plates that cannot be identified
without this photo enlargement technology. Imagener has helped positively
identify perpetrators as well as license plate information," he
Imagener is also used
for enlarging any type of digital image, from web content to old photos
to cell phone
photos and digital camera pictures.
It uses enhanced interpolation technology to preserve quality when enlarging,
with dramatically better results than commercial products like Photoshop® or
Paint Shop Pro® can produce.
Imagener includes two different levels of technology. Imagener's Unlimited
technology analyzes image complexity, computes a vector map of each region
and converts the regions into vectors then back into their original pixel-based
format after enlargement. Images can be resized without limit regardless
of their complexity.
Imagener's Progressive++ technology analyzes pixels well removed from
each targeted pixel, then estimates how colors change based on overall
image patterns. This fills in areas with pixel colors based on much more
image information than current enlargement methods, and enlarges surveillance
photos to allow identification of image content that was not possible
before. For additional information about photo enlargement, visit www.photoenlargement.org.
