RFEL’s Video Stabilisation Technology now available as off-the-shelf, in-line, plug-in solution at NAB at 2015 #NABShow

RFEL has announced a new, off-the-shelf solution for real-time, HD video stabilization.  StableEyesHD™ uses RFEL’s multi-award winning, HALO™ video processing technology to remove unwanted camera shake and picture rotation to increase the effectiveness of surveillance, security or situational awareness systems.  It is ideal for any surveillance application that is subject to camera or sensor platform movement and will be launched with live demonstrations at Counter Terror Expo 2015 on RFEL’s booth number M70.

Versions of StableEyesHD are available for most common video standards and it is simply installed by plugging it into the existing video cable connections. The simplicity of in-line installation means that it provides an easy way to upgrade existing installations and can just as easily be removed should a downgrade be required. It also fits into new installations and improves detection, recognition and identification performance, and acts to reduce viewer fatigue and false positives.  It is completely self-contained, requiring only a power feed and has a best-in-class, sub-10Watts consumption when at the highest supported input resolution.

Dr Alex Kuhrt, RFEL’s CEO, said, “This standalone, plug-and-play design is the simplest and most effective way to enhance a video surveillance system. It is a stabiliser in a box™ with video in from the camera or sensor and corrected video out.  The StableEyesHD rugged enclosure is a compact fist-size and has no moving parts to ensure a long working life, even in challenging environments such as pole-, boat- or vehicle-mounted.  Our field-proven HALO technology provides state-of-the-art, low latency high definition video stabilisation but maintains very low power consumption.”

StableEyesHD automatically senses and corrects horizontal, vertical and rotational scene movement, which is irrelevant and tiring for the operator to watch, leaving only the local movement that is of interest making it much easier to notice and respond to.  The technology is not fooled by mild defocus and works in the presence of rolling shutter problems.  Users can selectively program the rate of change of global movement that is corrected to optimise the device behaviour to the application.

Versions are now available to stabilise the following video formats – HD-SDI, Cameralink Base and GigE-Vision, priced from less than £4000.  Highly ruggedised or extended environmental range specification variants are available.
