Camera inspection in murky waters?
Is your video hazy?

Does your security camera or your thermal camera go blind due to wet weather conditions?

Introduction to Lolaark

Numerous factors can degrade video or still photo clarity in various outdoor conditions. Among the most challenging of them are low light conditions; turbid water, as in lakes, rivers or ports; water vapors such as fog or rain, smoke, or other aerosols. Our research at Lolaark is a disruptive innovation, which creates a radical change in the efficiency of operations requiring real-time visibility enhancement in videos and still images. Some examples of areas where our technology proves to be of great advantage are:

  1. Marine Inspections and Robotics: If you perform or review underwater inspections using ROVs or you are a professional, forensic or amateur diver and video or photo clarity keeps bothering you, then we have a solution for you readily available both as a product and as a service.
  2. Autonomous Vehicles: If you have ever heard of self-driving cars hitting a tree or a pole under poor or low lighting conditions, then often this is a result of their AI system not being able to detect the danger ahead. Our technology improves visibility in real-time, thereby allowing AI systems to better perform in the detection and classification of objects in front of the vehicle cameras, creating a much safer experience in autonomous driving.
  3. Security Cameras: Our technology is compatible with both IP and USB cameras, which makes it easy to integrate with security systems helping you keep a better eye on potential threats in fog or poor light.
  4. Health Care: If you are a surgeon using bio-medical imaging devices, then you may often encounter images or videos with illumination challenges. Endoscopic videos are one such application where defogging is frequently required in real-time, especially while performing robotic surgeries. Our invention can integrate with your camera and provide you with clearer images. We aim to expand the scope of our work to other applications such as diabetic retinopathy, tomography, and microscopy.

Products

ALSvision Capture
This system contains a camera, cables, other necessary hardware and a live video capturing software. ALSvision Capture can run on any Windows 8/10 platform and on any standard laptop (preferably with i7 processor and 4+ GB RAM).
MORE ABOUT
This software provides basic interface to use our camera system for viewing and recording live streams.
ALSvision Live
This software is ideal for inspection of structures inside sea ports, lake and other turbid water bodies. ALSvision Live implements proprietary, state of the art algorithms to enhance visibility in live underwater videos for resolutions up to 720p.
MORE ABOUT
In addition of hardware system mentioned in the above list, this also requires laptop with NVDIA GPU RTX 1060 or higher, an I7 quad-core processor and 16GB RAM. OS requirement Windows 10.
ALSvision Offline
The must have companion for underwater surveyors, marine archaeologists and biologists, oceanographers, pipeline inspectors and civil engineers for bridge and dam inspections. This is a utility for improving visibility of previously stored videos and batches of still photos.
MORE ABOUT
ALSvision Offline can work on computers with NVDIA GPU RTX 2060 (or GTX 1060) or higher with 6 GB RAM, an I7 quad core processor with 16GB RAM. OS requirement Windows 10. For best performance use uncompressed data.

How We Do It?

  • ALSvision live improves visibility of sub-aquatic video in murky water in real-time.
  • Works with hd-sdi, 3g-sdi and ip cameras can work with live feed from your camera.
  • ALSvision offline works with recorded footage or with single still photos or entire picture folders.
