Motion Amplification is a video-processing technique that detects subtle motion and enhances that motion to a level visible with the naked eye. Motion Amplification Technology can resolve motions as small as 0.25 microns at 1 meter. Compared to standard video technology, this is an improvement of nearly 1000x. The process involves the use of a high definition and high dynamic range video cameras where every pixel becomes an independent point sensor creating millions of continuous data points in an instant. All the points in the image are acquired simultaneously meaning relative phase can be determined across the entire scene. This solves fundamental issues in today’s standard contact-based data collections, that is for large or inaccessible assets outfitting them with contact sensors is costly and difficult.
