We love what we do because we are passionate about connecting people and we use the products we create every day to stay connected to our team.

In this key role,

  • You will be responsible for imaging/video for real time communication products (Video Conference Cameras, Webcams & Security Cams.) 

  • You will be tasked with delivering amazing video image quality by combining image processing, computational photography, computer vision and Deep Learning.

  • You will be responsible for analyzing, designing, specifying and implementing video solutions addressing the needs of current and future generations of products in the area of overall objective and subjective image /video quality as well as integrate them in the current and future communication & networking ecosystem.

Job responsibilities:

Your theoretical knowledge and hands-on expertise in imaging will be applied to all Video components of the camera system resulting in optimized and balanced performance.

You will add to our team by:

  • Tuning Image Quality in color processing pipeline (Defective pixel correction, Color interpolation, Gamma, Denoise, Sharpness, Brightness, Contrast, Saturation, …) and automatic feedback loops (AutoExposure, AutoWhiteBalance, AutoFocus).

  • Creating best practices for Image Quality Tuning by understanding the real life user scenarios of video conference cameras.

  • Devising improvement and customization of color processing pipeline and 3A to improve image quality.

  • Extended future responsibilities can include developing algorithms for improving video image quality in areas of 3A, noise reduction, details retention, facial enhancement, etc.

Qualifications:

  • Indepth working knowledge in camera ISP image processing algorithms and 3A.
