Agilent announced an image pipe processor that allows mobile phone and computing devices to take better color photos "in all lighting conditions" (a daring assertion, I'd say). The image pipe is integrated in Agilent's new family of system-on-chip (SOC) sensors, which feature the enhanced-performance (EP) pixel architecture.

The Agilent image pipe is said to contain more than 10 new design enhancements, including proprietary Agilent innovations such as automatic illuminant detection and advanced exposure control, pixel correction and contrast control. The image pipe is also specifically tuned to Agilent's enhanced performance (EP) pixel architecture, and is part of the company's EP-based SOC product line. The EP pixel architecture is also claimed to reduce dark current and noise, provide low image lag and remove the lens shading effect.

Agilent's image pipe is coupled with the CMOS sensor, also to improve image quality. It can be delivered with seventh-generation JPEG compression and enables prints up to 4" x 6" format.

  • Plausible illuminant (adapts to the ambient light)
  • Adaptive tone mapping
  • Advanced exposure control
  • Enhanced automatic pixel correction
  • Adaptive JPEG compression
  • Programmable dual LED and Xenon flash strobe support
  • Locally adaptive color noise suppression
  • Smooth digital zoom
  • Special-effects generator with "blue people," black and white, sepia, solarization and 20 other special effects
  • Anti-vignetting correction for lens shading effects
  • Picture sharpening and auto-flicker correction

The image pipe will be included in Agilent's new EP megapixel and multi-mega-pixel SOC sensors in the first half of 2006.
