Prohawk Technology

The ProHawkTM image enhancement system is the most comprehensive and effective solution in the market. It works by disassembling, processing and reassembling, every pixel of every image, in every frame, all in real-time.

ProHawkTM is the only real-time video enhancement system to feature Adaptive Enhancement.

The unique Digital Enhancement Filter algorithm, DEF, delivers a real-time system that requires virtually no operator intervention to adapt to rapidly changing environmental conditions.  ProHawkTMproducts leverage a powerful Field Programmable Gate Array (FPGA) processor which enhances the image in 1/60th of a second.

The Digital Enhancement Filter (DEF) combines six interconnected processes to deliver the highest quality enhancement:

Dynamic Range Enhancement – Using density histogram analysis in an innovative way to display the images hidden in both the bright and dark areas of the frame and optimize contrast.

Haze Reduction – The DEF algorithm converges the visual gradient to minimize the effect of haze, mist, fog, dust and smoke.

Contextual Enhancement – DEF identifies the color in the over- and under-exposed areas of the image, delivering improved color representation.

Edge Sharpening – The DEF algorithm reviews each pixel together with contiguous pixels for significant color and brightness changes, generating unrivaled edge sharpening and enhancing the detail in the resultant image.

Rapid Movement Detection – DEF allows the user to reduce the impact of rapid movement on the image. This minimizes the effects of rain, drizzle and snow.

Visual Noise Reduction – Minimizes the impact of “noise” during high levels of enhancement.

ProHawkTM solutions also include Control Interface Software allowing advanced users to refine the enhancement capabilities of up to 100 ProHawkTM units from a single PC.
