Vimicro Announces Sophisticated Scene-based High Fidelity Image Processing Technology to Meet Demands of Growing Surveillance and Consumer Electronics Markets

BEIJING , Jan. 8 /PRNewswire-Asia-FirstCall/ — Today at the CES tradeshow
in Las Vegas, NV , Vimicro International Corporation (Nasdaq: VIMC), a leading
multimedia semiconductor and solution provider, announced the launch of its
scene-based, high-fidelity image processing technology for surveillance
markets. This new technology has been adopted by the Chinese National Standard

“With rapid growth in China's video surveillance markets, there is an
immediate need to meet the demands for sophisticated smart applications,” said
Dr. Dave Yang , CTO of Vimicro. “The high-fidelity image processing technology
will help meet these emerging demands by offering higher quality video imagery
for applications, including Intelligent Analysis and Machine Recognition, and
providing added value to consumer electronic devices, such as camcorders,
digital cameras and other devices with video display.”

Vimicro's scene-based, high fidelity image and video processing technology
is used during image capturing and compression. The sophisticated capture
technology enables all useful details of an original scene to be preserved,
including dynamic range, object details (e.g. faces, license plates, numbers),
and reconstructs images and videos for optimal viewing while balancing the
dynamic range.

Without loss of details of the original scene, processed and/or
reconstructed images and videos can be useful not just for viewing, but also
useful for high accuracy video analytics which enable security cameras to
identify a range of behaviors, possibly requiring further investigation by
security staff. The video codec technology supports wide dynamic range video
without increasing bitrates.
