Is Darbee Visual Presence the real 3.5 D ?
"Darbee Visual Presence" is an image processing algorithm dubbed as "3.5 D". Darbee Visual Presence is a process improving depth cues in 2D images. Of course, applied to the two images of a 3D video stream, the result is even more impressive. The typical application segment is image processing inside display devices.
For the technically inclined, Darbee uses parallax disparity as the basis for local luminance modulation within an image, using a patented defocus-and-subtract method which is selectively applied based upon a fast and accurate saliency map.
DarbeeVision was founded by Paul Darbee in 2002 and has a patent on the technology.
