C-Enhancer

Underwater video image enhancement system

  • Simple BNC input/output
  • Auto-detection of PAL and NTSC inputs
  • Auto RGB colour balancing
  • Fish-eye effect removal
  • Low light enhancement
  • Real-time correction

C-Enhancer is a powerful real-time video enhancement system that dynamically colour balances a standard definition (SD) composite video signal to produce a more natural looking video from imagery captured in challenging underwater environments. The system can also remove the fish-eye effect generated by wide angle camera lenses, following an initial camera calibration process. Auto RGB colour balancing and low light enhancement options are interchangeable in real-time.

Applications include ROV operations, subsea inspection, marine archaeology, aquaculture and diving. A high definition (HD) variant and standalone post-processing software are currently in development.
