The ProHawk FPGA Development Kit (FPGADK) enables ProHawk technology to be integrated into systems with FPGA’s and ASIC’s. The ProHawk FPGADK is a set of tools that enables ProHawk Instant Visual Clarity algorithms to be embedded into an M.2, PCIe 3.0, or cloud services based FPGA. Designed for applications that require the absolute lowest possible latency, the FPGADK empowers developers to integrate Instant Visual Clarity into their real-time mission critical systems. The FPGADK is optimized for rapid development from prototype to production.
Instant Visual Clarity – ProHawk unlocks the highest quality real-time video enhancements with patented ultra-low latency enabling dramatically improved Instant Visual Clarity. Thereby enabling users, IoT devices, and computer vision systems to more accurately analyze and act on clarity in video data.
Visibility in Degraded Visual Environments – ProHawk provides visibility in adverse lighting and challenging environments that can leave little to no actionable data with traditional video systems. ProHawk provides Instant Visual Clarity in these circumstances enables Computer Vision AI systems, IoT devices, and humans to receive the full benefit of their video systems allowing them to take proper action quickly.
Clarity in Challenging Weather Conditions – ProHawk allows AI systems, IoT devices, and end users to see clearly through extreme weather conditions that impact the visibility of camera systems. Severely compromised video quality is eliminated with ProHawks Instant Visual Clarity Technology providing users and AI Computer Vision systems with the actionable data they require.
Improve Recognition – ProHawk is a foundation technology which enables Video Analytics, IoT devices, Artificial Intelligence and Computer Vision systems to dramatically improve event detection, object recognition, 3D pose estimation, and motion estimation.
Potential Life Saving – When clear visibility is the difference between life and death, ProHawk provides the instantaneous visual clarity required to make life-saving decisions.
Patented Versatile Industrial Strength Algorithms
The ProHawk patented real-time video enhancement algorithms can enhance many type of imagery including conventional video, high or wide dynamic range, infrared, thermal, and even medical images. These sophisticated real-time video enhancement algorithms provide unparalleled clarity in compromised video due to poor lighting, extreme weather, airborne particulate matter, and environmental conditions.
Ultra Low Latency
The ProHawk FPGA Developers Kit unlocks the highest quality real-time video enhancements with patented ultra-low latency enabling dramatically improved visual clarity. This allows users to more accurately analyze and act on enhanced real-time or stored video. It also allows machine and computer vision systems to more accurately analyze and act on enhanced video in real-time.
Industry Standard High Definition Video Formats
The ProHawk FPGA Developers Kit support various industry standard formats such as SMPTE, HDMI, & DisplayPort. SMPTE supported formats include: SD-SDI (SMPTE-259M), HD-SDI (SMPTE-292M), 3G-SDI (SMPTE-424M), 6G-SDI (SMPTE-2081), and 12G-SDI (SMPTE-2081). HDMI supported versions 1.0-2.1, and Video Electronic Standards Association (VESA) DisplayPort versions 1.0-1.4. This covers the broadest range of video formats in the industry that include: 480i, 480p, 576i, 576p, 720p, 1080i, 1080p, 1440p, 2160p, 4K UHD, 5K UHD, & 8K UHD.
Rapid & Tight Application Integration
The ProHawk FPGA Developers Kit allows systems and hardware developers to quickly and easily integrate ProHawk’s real-time video enhancement FPGA technology into virtually any system and application. This enables organizations to integrate ProHawk technology into their solutions offering significantly faster, and get high quality solutions into their markets on time. It allows for flexibility in systems design so that ProHawk technology can be inserted into a variety of points in the video content delivery chain.
ProHawk’ provides a unique ability to adapt to changing visual conditions. Monitoring 7×24 can be challenging due to continual changes in adverse lighting, extreme weather, airborne particulate matter, and challenging environmental conditions. ProHawk technology’s capacity to autonomously detect and adjust internal parameters to provide clarity at every moment in time is truly a time saver. This eliminates users and operators from having to know video optics and adjusting a system manual in order to achieve the desired visual result.
