(2) Low illumination (slow shutter)

(3) 2D/3D noise reduction

The camera chip, also known as the digital signal processing chip DSP, can be said to be the brain of the camera, with the same effect as the CPU in a computer. Its main function is to optimize and process the digital image signals transmitted by CMOS/CCD sensors through a series of complex mathematical algorithms, and transmit the processed signals to devices such as PCs through USB and other interfaces. It is the core device of the camera.

ICatch Technology Xinding Technology is a low-power, high-performance digital image and video IC design and development enterprise under Lingyang, Taiwan. It has accumulated outstanding professional knowledge in image signal processing, machine vision, IC design, and system integration.

The Catch chip, as a camera DSP chip, has the technological advantage of low power consumption and high performance, mainly reflected in the following points:

Multi axis anti shake:

The iCatch algorithm supports digital and electronic image stabilization (DIS and EIS), where EIS requires additional gyroscopes to provide the information required for optimal performance.

3D noise reduction:

ICatch's 3D denoising algorithm estimates the motion between frames to significantly reduce unnecessary noise while maintaining the integrity of all other image information.

Slow motion:

ICatch's latest image signal processor (ISP) and video encoder can process data at extremely high frame rates and achieve slow motion effects when playing videos at slower speeds.

Wide dynamic range:

ICatch's Wide Dynamic Range (WDR) technology applies local tone mapping to recover lost details, allowing the camera to capture excellent images and videos under extreme lighting conditions.

Super resolution:

ICatch's super-resolution algorithm only requires a single frame to avoid motion artifacts, and even if the image is captured using 16x digital zoom, it can effectively recover lost image information.

High ISO noise reduction:

ICatch adopts the most advanced noise reduction technology to improve the output image quality of images captured in low light environments using high ISO settings.

H. 265 Encoder:

ICatch's SoC can record videos at 4K resolution and is equipped with an H.265 encoder, which further reduces the video file size by 30-40% compared to the H.264 encoder.
