’s dual- sensor patent focuses on higher quality s

While we’ve all hrd the saying “two hd’s are better than one,” a new patent applies that thinking to digital s. The patent, granted Tuesday by the U.S. Patent and Trademark , describes a method of combining two sensors to produce the a photo with the best quality.In its U.S. Patent No. 8,493,482 filing, outlines a ‘Dual sensor processing system and method.’ The company mentions the iPhone, iPod and some Macs as potentially benefitting from the technology, suggesting a likely iSight camera bump up and better imaging on future devices…The patentexplains the invention could work either with one sensor (as is the case with conventional digital cameras) or is able to process the imaging data from two sensors.The system detects imaging flaws, such as dd pixels, coloring or lighting problems which are then compared against various stored msurements. Afterwards, flaws present in one sensor will be replaced by imaging data from another sensor.The comparisons reportedly work both with photos and s.
The patent describes use of Bayer filtering techniques.According to the filing, a Bayer sensor may be interpolated when applying green non-uniformity correction techniques during processing to produce a full color RGB .As the iPhone grows in popularity as a device forserious photographers, ’s patenting efforts have often returned to enhancing the process. Previous patents have described ways toavoid camera shakeby comparing s taken, providing the user several choices.Another patent outlined a way to link iDevice cameras toact in unison, such as when requiring a flash to fill a scene. rlier this yr, acquired a ofimaging patentsfrom camera pioneer Kodak.
