I had the opportunity to check out what a team behind stabilization technology can do with regards to shooting video on mobile devices.
This video enhancement software is developed by IMINT, a Swedish company. With software that focuses on stabilizing footage, there are numerous aspects to look at. Creating solutions based on reducing motion blur, correcting the horizon, and complex lens correction processes as you capture the video is no easy feat, and yet they’ve done it.
In the video, there are two phones mounted on the same stand. Ine is set up with the stabilization active, and the other is left shooting in its normal camera mode.
What I’ve Noticed
There is no question about the video quality being superior when stabilized with their technology. When panning quickly, the stabilized camera made the shot easier and more of a pleasure to view.
They do this using video enhancement algorithms, which can also be used in drones, DSLRs, and mirrorless cameras. Their aim is to move into the professional video industry, and they are partnering up with camera manufacturers so the end-consumer can get their hands on the technology.
We have in-body image stabilization and lens stabilization, but if this software can remove the step of applying the Warp Stabilizer in Premiere, it’ll be a win for us all.
It’s quite remarkable to see what’s possible with just a mobile phone. They are also entering the professional video market, as the need for video has seen exponential growth, so be ready for it, and know that this Swedish company is on the forefront and only getting started.
