Pinnacle Imaging Systems are leaders in high dynamic range video solutions and IP cores, proprietary locally adaptive tone mapping, algorithm-in-logic expertise, frame merge and exposure merge techniques, sensor characterization, and the entire IP core pipeline.
Pinnacle Imaging Systems proprietary algorithms embedded in logic IP blocks and cores function beyond the standard, industry excepted level of high dynamic range in camera systems in several areas and present a higher degree of dynamic range beyond most standard high dynamic range camera systems utilizing only in-sensor-based high or wide dynamic range.
This higher degree is quantifiable and measurable, using industry standard test and measurement methodologies. Pinnacle Imaging Systems uses advanced algorithm technology described as algorithms embedded in logic, which can be embedded in numerous forms of logic.
The Pinnacle Ultra HDR system takes the physical limitation of dB from a standard WDR CMOS image sensor, applies advanced algorithms to the image sensor output and extends the dynamic range (dB) of the sensor and camera system to a theoretic upper limit of 250 dB, which is 3.6x beyond the limit of most existing WDR or HDR CMOS image sensors.
