Human eyes are capable of fusing two displaced images, even those with differences in details, contrast and luminance, as up to a certain limit. This phenomenon is binocular single vision, based on which we developed the world’s first Binocular Video Tone Mapping (BVTM) framework. Our proposed BVTM framework can be adopted in Hollywood 3D film-making industry by generating videos that quality, vividness, realism and other attributes are beyond what is currently possible. In ophthalmologic examinations, our technology can be applied for Amblyopia (Lazy Eye) treatment by engaging the idle eye with more visual depth and details.

Uniqueness and Competitive Advantages:

  • An easy-to-use, low cost and high efficiency system
  • Visual vividness improvement and innovative treatment
  • Applications in movie, game and medical industry

Handheld High-Resolution Short-Wave Infrared Spectrometer

Spectrometers are widely used in many different aspects, such as food and environmental inspection etc. However, it is necessary to have a portable and high-resolution spectrometer for real-time on-site inspection at remote farm or factory. CUHK team invented two new technologies, which broke the traditional boundary. We develop a handheld high-resolution short-wave infrared (SWIR) spectrometer […]
