Stepok Image Lab has over 10 years' experience and expertise in the industry, particularly in the area of:
- Matting and masking; Developing new algorithms on high quality photo masking.
Recomposit (link to Recomposit) is based algorithms such as these;
- Image enlarging (link to Stepok Picture Enlarger) and resampling software;
A new algorithm which was introduced in Picture Enlarger which assumes the camera pixel is a subsample average of high resolution and calculates out the high resolution image based on that assumption;
- Screen video compression;
Developing a new method is developed to separate the images from text in screen-shots and compressing it based on contents. We have another website about the products based on this technology.
