Reveal High Quality Actionable Video
Under All Environmental Conditions
What Lurks in the Shadows?
Today we use video feeds for security, automation, transportation and a multitude of other applications, however, not all video is created equally. Changes in light, bad weather and other environmental conditions can render normally clear camera feeds completely useless. In the scene above you will find unenhanced security camera footage. When you hover your cursor over the image you will see the results of ProHawk enhancement revealing the intruder breaching security.

Video Clarity Now
4 Reasons Why
Light moves quickly and so does ProHawk. With a world-record-setting per frame processing rate of 16 microseconds (0.000016 seconds), ProHawk is the first and only true real-time video enhancement solution.
ALL CONDITIONS MANAGED
ProHawk manipulates light and matter to see through the rain and fog, pull detail from shadows and block glare from the sun. With the broadest range of noise mitigation, ProHawk is the world leader in advanced video enhancement.
The All-New ProHawk Vision Suite(TM) 3.1 provides freedom of choice by running on dedicated FPGA’s, commercial CPU’s and GPU’s or on-demand in public or private clouds.
INTEROPERABLE & COMPATIBLE
ProHawk works seamlessly with your existing video systems and integrates with world lading video management and analytic systems.
The Need For Speed
ProHawk Vision Suite™ is the first and only video enhancement solution capable of operating in real-time. Our closest competitor’s fastest per-frame processing rate is 350 milliseconds (.350 seconds). A lot can happen in one-third of a second. A car traveling at 60 miles per hour covers 30.8 feet in that time.
Wouldn’t you want your car to stop 30 feet shorter from a potential obstacle?
ProHawk has achieved a record-breaking per-frame processing rate of 16 microseconds (0.000016 seconds), A traveling distance of .016 of an inch at 60 MPH resulting in a stopping distance 30.7 feet shorter. With ProHawk, the time you save may save a life.
If your application depends on reaching accurate conclusions, promptly, then there is no better choice than to deploy ProHawk.
We Clear Things Up
ProHawk battles the weather and adverse lighting conditions. Using advanced, patented, parallel and sequential algorithms, ProHawk Vision Suite™ brings instant clarity to videos compromised by unwanted particles and poor-quality or adverse lighting conditions.
ProHawk removes or accentuates elements in the image or video frame to improve overall clarity. We reduce weather elements such as rain, snow, fog or sand, and decrease or increase the light on a subject to optimize clarity. The algorithms employed depend on your environment and your specific application requirements.
As a result, operators and systems can see through storms, identify subjects through tinted windows and in many cases reveal lost details hidden in the shadows.
With ProHawk Vision Suite™ 3.1 the days of being tethered to expensive proprietary hardware are over. ProHawk now operates where you need it most:
- Onboard – embedded in dedicated systems
- Onsite – using commercial-off-the-shelf CPU’s and GPU’s
- On-Demand – in the Amazon, Google or Azure Clouds
Video systems can be complex and comprised of multiple components. ProHawk resides between your image capture device and your video destination. If you are sending a single feed to a single monitor, we sit in the middle and improve the clarity of the video. In most cases, video recorders, video analytics and video management systems are key elements in modern security and surveillance systems. ProHawk is compatible with legacy video systems and we integrate seamlessly with the world’s most popular video management solutions such as:
- Johnson Controls
Work With The Best
Today’s modern video management systems do more than simply switch video feeds to displays. They can overlay video streams on maps, identify intruders, create geo-fences and recognize the difference between friend and foe. When we seamlessly integrate with your video management system you will be amazed at how everything sees and works better.
A Clearer Picture of the Real World
Video surveillance and monitoring have become a central part of transportation management and municipal security. Increasingly, video analytics are relied upon to interpret traffic, collect tolls and assist law enforcement.
When adverse lighting or extreme weather enters the picture, the ability for systems to operate with confidence is compromised. ProHawk helps remove elements that make video unintelligible, resulting in higher confidence scores and superior, more reliable performance.
Command and Control
Few applications are more demanding than military missions. Both the military and law enforcement are increasingly dependent on the real-time actionable intelligence delivered by video.
Battlefield environments can be impacted by smoke, dust, and vibration as well as extreme weather. Remotely operated vehicles and drones rely on clear video to inform their operators of activity in the theatre.
With ProHawk, both military and law enforcement professionals can depend on the clearest possible images, in real-time, to inform their operators and video analytics systems.
Smart cities, traffic management and autonomous vehicles are on the move. The ability to improve and monitor the flow of traffic and navigate congested city streets is a function of computer vision. Today there are more than 125 companies focused on interpreting video, deciphering patterns and automating systems. How many companies are dedicated to the quality of the video being processed?
The Answer is ProHawk
Here's Something For the Engineering Team:
ProHawk owns 5 issued patents including inventions covering the following:
Histogram Color Space Brightness Contrast Optimization
- Adjusts every pixel in low contrast images with extreme dark and bright differences to expose fine details
- Automated imagery brightness including movement
Sensitization & Noise Reduction
- Algorithm that detects rapid motion for every pixel simultaneously to eliminate unwanted objects obscuring visibility
- Noise reduction is the process of removing random or white noise with an even frequency distribution, or frequency dependent noise introduced by a device’s mechanism or signal processing algorithms from a signal
Contextual Color Enhancement
- Independent 1-pass parallel processing of brightness & color, fast performance enables real-time enhancement
- Identifies color in over and under exposed areas to deliver improved color representations natural to the human eye
Low Contrast - Light & Dark Imagery
- Parallel processing imagery handling of extreme bright or dark low contrast or both
- Superior real-time enhancement for fog conditions
Tone Map Correction Contrast Improvement
- Construct limited adaptive histogram equalization eliminates grainy gradient noise
- Eliminates excessive contrast controlling brightness of the entire screen
To Stream or Not to Stream
Once you discover how ProHawk improves your video the only question is “Do I run ProHawk Vision® Suite™ locally or in the cloud?” ProHawk.cloud is designed to meet the demands of commercial customers with RESTful API support for batch processing and real-time streaming.
If you need to process video on occasion – say for legal forensics or security – then there is likely no better way than to use ProHawk.cloud. With prices as low as $.01 per megabyte our enhancement costs are nearly impossible to beat. Not to mention, it is fast and easy to get started.
