Imint’s Vidhance Selfie Mode brings a Google Duo-like auto-framing feature to smartphone cameras
Imint is a Swedish company that produces video software used by smartphone brands such as OnePlus and Xiaomi. Vidhance is the company’s flagship product and today they are announcing a new feature for multi-camera devices called “Selfie Mode.”
A name like “Selfie Mode” does the feature a disservice as there’s actually quite a bit going on here. Selfie Mode is part of Vidhance, which is a video enhancement software platform that can transform smartphone cameras into professional recording devices. Put simply, Imint uses algorithms to maximize the potential of the hardware. As mentioned, manufacturers such as Xiaomi, OPPO, OnePlus, and Vivo already use Vidhance.
Vidhance Selfie Mode is all about making sure people stay in frame when on a video call, recording a selfie video, and much more. Selfie Mode uses AI and facial recognition to continuously track the user’s face and subtly reposition it within the frame. Imnit claims that this even works in low-light conditions. This is similar to a feature in Google Duo. You can watch the video below to see it in action.
Imnit has also announced “Super Stabilization,” which it claims can bring action camera performance to smartphones. It utilizes wide-angle cameras and high-resolution sensors to create a more stable video. It manipulates the original video to compensate for excessive motion. Lastly, the company talked about Vidhance MCT. This is a feature that uses an algorithm to create a smooth transition when a user switches between multiple cameras.
All three of these features will be included in the Vidhance 3.6 software release. Be on the lookout for these features in smartphone cameras in the future.
