Intel Licenses Almalence’s SuperSensor Computational Imaging Technology

Almalence Inc., one of the world's leaders in computational imaging, announces today that it is working closely with Intel to enable Almalence SuperSensor Technology on the Intel® Atom™ x3 processors.

SuperSensor, the latest technology from Almalence is a pure computational software solution that helps improve the image quality of a mobile device. SuperSensor simultaneously improves resolution, low light performance and dynamic range with the same effect as if the sensor and lens were both increased in size, but without actually having to make any hardware changes.

"SuperSensor, the first of next generation computational imaging algorithms, has the ability to simultaneously improve multiple mobile imaging challenges all at once," said Daniel Sakols, Almalence Vice President of Business Development. "SuperSensor sets a new bar in computational image quality and we are proud Intel has selected it for their Intel® Atom™ x3 processor based platforms for mobile devices."

With SuperSensor, mobile device manufacturers can now improve a device's overall image capture quality for all shooting conditions, not just a single parameter, like resolution for instance. A camera design can now deliver 2x the effective resolution, the ability to resolve more detail in shadows and dark scenes, and greater dynamic range, all improved together without the design time, risks, and costs associated with hardware changes.
