The LYYN technology is a result of many years of research in the human vision system. By enhancing image components that stimulate the human interpretation and understanding of images, more data is used by the brains filtering system. The effect is that we see more features through many visual disturbances.
When we look at something, signals from red-sensitive, blue-sensitive and green-sensitive receptors in the eye retinae travel to centers in the brain, where we interpret them, understand them; “see” them; hopefully recognize a pattern or a shape. What we call color is a particular balance of signals from the red, green and blue receptors. In an equal signal mixture, we only see shades of white, gray or black, and no color.
The eye and brain can discern only about two dozen shades of gray. But if there is even the slightest hint of unbalance in the R, G, B in-signals, the eye and brain can separate thousands of color shades and intensities. Thus color, if at all existent in a picture, is a powerful descriptor that often simplifies object identification and extraction from a scene. The LYYN procedure extracts even the faintest traces of color in a picture, perhaps unvisible to the un-aided eye, and processes them so the brain can thus better understand what it perceives.
This is where the LYYN process is better than a pure contrast (grayness) enhancer….it helps the human brain use its best strength…color separation and object identification even in an apparently “gray” scene.
The best way to understand the capabilities of LYYN technology is seeing the result with your own eyes. In the LYYN Showroom you will find many examples both stills and video, most of them from customers already using LYYN.

This is a live demonstration of LYYN real-time video enhancement. For demonstration purposes we have selected a lyynification window in the image, showing the un-enhanced original video on the outside of that window.
In extremely clean air in Arctic or mountainous areas, the visibility can be up to 70 kilometers (43 mi) to 100 kilometers (62 mi). However, visibility is often reduced somewhat by air pollution and high humidity. Various weather stations report this as haze (dry) or mist (moist).
Fog and smoke can reduce visibility to near zero. The same [...]
A known problem inherent in surveillance and other observation systems is the need to overcome visibility reducing conditions such as: humidity, haze, fog, mist, smoke, dust, snow or rain that might be present in the space between the surveillance system and the target being observed. The particles or droplets reduces visibility in two ways; the [...]
