High Definition pictures and videos demand special processing. The Venus Engine V image processor developed by Panasonic gets the maximum out of still and video imaging with incredible processing power.
Most digital cameras house a “brain” – the LSI – which generates a luminance signal from the green component of incoming light. The intelligent Panasonic Venus Engine image processor technology generates the signal from the red and blue components as well. This rich luminance signal information helps to boost the diagonal, horizontal and vertical resolution for extraordinary sharp and detailed images.
An image-processing engine, Venus Engine V, uses advanced signal processing providing beautiful images even when the sensitivity is high. Multi-task signal processing is employed for all images to enable high-speed, high-performance shooting. The Venus Engine V also effectively raises the precision of various functions, such as MEGA O.I.S. (Optical Image Stabilizer) and Intelligent ISO Control.
Along with its extremely high performance, Venus Engine V reduces power consumption thanks to a number of energy efficiency improvements.
The high-performance image-processing LSI has been reborn as Venus Engine HD, assuring higher-quality pictures and HD movies in 720p AVCHD Lite with an advanced signal processing system.
Regardless if you are shooting low-lit still images or fast moving HD videos, you can rest assured that the Venus Engine HD image processor will handle it all perfectly. Thanks to AVCHD Lite and the high performance of Venus Engine HD this new High Definition quality is possible.
