SoftColor sledgehammer - Illumination |
The basis of the innovation is to merge an exact illumination information, i.e. information about the spectral distribution, with traditional error correction. The result is a technology which exactly, observes the surrounding illumination from digital photo and corrects automatically colors of a photo taken with a mobile camera phone or digital camera to the level that can be reached with a high-quality SLR digital camera. Softcolor’s technology is awarded Innofinland prize 2005 by President of Finland. Photo sledgehammer’s ”try before buy”-version and full version are avaible for download. System requirements: Microsoft Windows XP, 2000, ME, 98, Pentium II 400 Mhz, 256 Mb memory. SoftColor’s color correction for mobile devices will be availble during Q1 2006.
