Geotagging Imagery and Video

IsWHERE is a log of my thoughts, reflections, and news/blog links on the emergence of image and video geospatial tagging. On May5th this year, I opened a second blog to deal with more detailed aspects of tools for FalconView and TalonView can be found at RouteScout. Trends I want to try and follow are the various disruptions resulting from spatial smart-phones, how many GPS devices are out there, smart-cameras, and other related news. And yes, I have a business interest in all of this. My company Red Hen has been pioneering this sort of geomedia for more than a decade.

So beyond a personal blog, I also provide a link to IsWHERE a shareware tool created by Red Hen Systems to readily place geoJPEG or geotagged imagery and soon GEM full motion media kept on your own computer(s) into Google Earth/Map from your File Manager media selection. Works great for geotagged images from Nikon, Ricoh, Sony, iPHONE, Android and all geo-smartphones that can create geotagged images. IsWhere - read about it

Silicon Hive bringing photographic differentiation to phones

An Eindhoven, The Netherlands-based company says it will bring “unrivaled image and video capturing experience to smart phones” by combining imaging algorithms with parallel processing architectures.

Rapid introduction of new camera features requires upgrading application processors with software programmable image processing capabilities, says imaging developer Silicon Hive.  Its HiveGo CSS3205 processor “offers the best-in-class solution not only to future-proof mobile application processor for the emerging computational photography applications but also to leverage a global ecosystem of innovative imaging software application partners to provide a competitive camera experience.”

The company adds that the CSS3205 complements the image signal processing pipe in smart phone application processors with a power-efficient C-programmable application environment, “enabling rapid and comprehensive upgrades of smart phones with differentiating camera software applications.”

It includes face detection, tracking, recognition, and beautification, noise reduction, and multi-axis video stabilization including rolling shutter compensation.

The new system was announced at the 6Sight Future of Imaging conference, and we will have more information about it in an upcoming edition of The 6Sight Report.
