Almalence is taking an innovative approach to actively disrupting the industry, using algorithms to improve photo quality at unprecedented speeds, setting the standard for how digital imagery is imagined for the future.
A few years ago software was considered as something additional/extra/optional and now it’s an integral, indispensable part of a camera subsystem. Sometimes the design of a new mobile phone model camera starts with looking at the software and then selecting the hardware.
…the top line smartphones have certainly upgraded the equipment (sensors) in the cameras, but the biggest quality difference has been achieved by software.
The software onboard smartphones today is revolutionary. The ability to take pictures in low light, digitally zoom (or crop) without significant resolution loss, and capture moving objects without blur is in large part a function of software, not hardware. In fact many smartphone cameras are designed from the ground up based on software requirements.
