Single Camera Background Blur

Morpho Single Camera Bokeh™

“Morpho Sigle Camera Bokeh” is an image software that recognizes the subject from an image taken with a monocular camera by AI and generates high precision blur for the image of background.

Use Case

  • Smartphone / tablet
  • Ship / Train / Airplane
  • Autonomous vehicle
  • Depth camera

Function or Purpose

  • Background bokeh
  • Depth estimation

Features

  • It accomplishes to blur backgound like dual cameras and single-lens reflex cameras of high-end smartphones with monocular camera smartphones.
  • Background blur is possible even for subjects other than people and images taken in the past.
  • Due to the use of "SoftNeuro®" deep learning inference engine, it also enables high speed inference on edge devices.

Product Details

“Morpho Single Camera Bokeh” recognizes the subject from the image taken by the monocular camera by AI technology, and can easily generate a high precision image of blur background.

This product generates a highly accurate depthmap by combining two AI models, monocular depth estimation and person segmentation, and refinement technology that improves the accuracy of the boundary part, without blurring the lines such as the person’s head and shoulders.
It also supports distant scenes where it is difficult to generate a depthmap such as dual cameras and ToF, the accuracy does not deteriorate even it is a background of repeating patterns such as borders and grid patterns that the conventional method using dual cameras is not good at.
In addition, even if the subject you want to focus on is something other than a person or an image taken in the past, you can generate a background blur image by simply tapping the part you want to blur on your smartphone.

Furthermore, it uses the world’s fastest deep learning inference engine “SoftNeuro” developed by morpho which efficiently increases the inference speed, and operates at high speed even on edge devices such as smartphones.
It supports Qualcomm’s HTA and HTP, and makes faster inferences on devices equipped with these AI chips.
