DxO Labs Updates Embedded Imaging Pages

DxO Labs has updated embedded imaging pages on its web site. The pages describe the company's ISP, computational photography and services offerings. The news section announces that Motorola's Moto-X phone uses DxO Labs EIS video stabilization with jello effect compensation. A short Youtube video compares DxO's software EIS with OIS in Nokia Lumia 1020:


  1. Does it correct motion blur too?

  2. What camera is the DxO video shot with?

    It's not fair to benchmark against the abnormally large sensor in the 1020. It's readout rate could be very large compared to other sensors. If there are sensors that can read out out 8Mp at 60fps, the readout time for a 1080p30 video image from the same sensor would be very short. The "jello effect" would be minimal except in scenes where the camera moves very fast.

  3. Maybe the person had a more shaky hand when taking video with the Nokia 1020 than the DxO video. It is very clear that the two videos where shot at two different times with two different cameras.

  4. Anonymous 1: I'm betting it no it doesn't
    Anonymous 2: the lumia 1020 shoots videos in 1080p, so the read-out should be "normal".
    Anonymous 3: hmmm, you can clearly see the same cars passing by both videos: they were taken at the exact same time.
    with that said, I don't remember the 1020 videos being THAT shaky
    It doesn't really matter since both are hardware corrections running on the same 1080p video

  5. It is most certainly not the 1020 or even a Nokia image from anything even close. Probably a point and shoot. Not only does the 1020 Image module have one of the most advanced OPTICAL setups it also has the ability to roam around the CMOS using accelerometer data as well as the Zeiss assembly. Oh and does not suffer from omnivision red poor image quality as on the left image. As an owner of both the Lumia 909 AKA 1020 and 808 as well as the image blocks used on test boards this is pathetic. If you own one and work in this industry you would know that it has an optical image stabilizer and this is the worst example of over selling your companies processing abilities. Anyone notice how bad the color balance and sharpness the 1020 is supposedly compared to what ever sensor they claim to be PROCESSING an image from.

    Yawn. Sorry DX whoever are nor Toshiba or Zeiss Nor will they be capable of anything like this any time soon. I am sure its better than what Motorola had before however that's not much to jump around over.
