OPPO is introducing its new (Full Dimension Fusion) FDF Portrait video system, which integrates powerful hardware and intelligent algorithms alongside processing technology on the Reno5 Pro 5G smartphone. This new imaging system aims to solve major concerns for next-gen consumers to have a better video recording experience. OPPO implies a study from CMR report, which suggests 5G smartphones are fuelling video content creation and consumption, globally. The next-gen technology is said to be beneficial for millennials in creating and sharing short-form video content. OPPO intends to improve its video recording experience with the new FDF imaging system.
Such content essentially requires two facilities for consumers who tend to shoot more often. That comprises — their subject to be clear in the video under any lighting circumstances — they need effects to be handy to bring in their unique styles in content creation. This is what OPPO believes and has developed the FDF system based on Quality Enhancement Engine and the Portrait Perception Engine. The company also suggests that their Imaging technology has always been one of the core features of its Reno series and the Reno5 Pro intends to make the experience better than the previous iterations.
OPPO’s FDF Portrait Video System — How it works?
The Full Dimension Fusion (FDF) Portrait Video system aims to deliver optimised portrait videos for content creation. OPPO says it is not an operating system but works with a different system level to Android. It has a Portrait Perception Engine, which further has three parts to it comprising — Scene Design Manager, AI Modeling, and Portrait processing.
Scene Design Manager – OPPO suggests that video styles are difficult to quantify and in order to measure that Scene Design Manager comes into place. It utilizes multiple measurements to determine the system design, which will eventually train the AI model. By integrating hardware and system-level software, it claims to deliver better portrait results.
The portrait scene definition and the results from the Scene Design manager are now passed on to the AI Model. The Portrait Perception Engine now utilizes this AI model along with neural networks to recognise portrait subjects accurately. Further, the necessary processing takes place, which includes — face optimisation, motion tracking and instance segmentation.
The Portrait Perception Engine here delivers results based on best algorithm performance. The algorithms here lets the system optimise independently on portrait and the background, which further promises users to shoot their unique style and highlight their respective subjects in the video. The set of algorithms tend to work together with the video portrait system, which claims to process subjects more naturally that further allows users to always capture their portrait shots more effectively. The perception engine also helps users to create videos with additional features that comprise AI colour portrait monochrome video and more.
On the whole, the FDF Portrait Video System is said to be designed to overcome videography challenges, as suggested earlier. These challenges include real-life scenes comprising — the ability to capture clear shots at night, reducing overexposure in heavily backlit scenes, and also to eliminate blurs, and shaky videos during motion capturing shots. This new imaging system is further paired with OPPO’s AI Highlight video feature to reduce image noise based on the image’s content. OPPO mentions that it believes in its ‘clarity based on reality’ philosophy to capture best image quality and the imaging technology it has developed only tends to make the image better wherein the natural colours of it remain intact.
