ProHawk Vision SDK


The ProHawk Vision Software Developers Kit (SDK) is a set of software tools that enables ProHawk technology to be tightly integrated into a variety of applications for hardware, software, and services market solutions. An Application Programming Interface (API) enables software engineers to easily integrate ProHawk Vision capabilities directly into their systems and solutions. A Web UI provides instant integration into applications.

The ProHawk Vision SDK places real-time video enhancement technology at the forefront of the market evolution. The ProHawk Vision SDK provides the necessary Application Programming Interfaces (APIs) and support libraries to deliver an truly integrate-able solution.

Instant Visual Clarity – ProHawk Vision unlocks the highest quality real-time video enhancements with patented ultra-low latency enabling dramatically improved Instant Visual Clarity. Thereby enabling users, IoT devices, computer and machine vision systems to more accurately analyze and act on clarity in video data.

Visibility in Degraded Visual Environments – ProHawk Vision 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 Vision 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 Vision providing users and AI Computer Vision systems with the actionable data they require.

Improve Recognition – ProHawk Vision 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 Vision SDK 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 Vision SDK 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 Vision SDK 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 Vision SDK allows applications and systems developers to quickly and easily integrate ProHawk Vision real-time video enhancement technology into virtually any system and application. This enables organizations to integrate ProHawk Vision 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’s Vision SDK 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.
