The Ocule uses "depth cues" to calculate how to make an images look more compellingly like a real object. These cues provide crucial details that are important for the brain to feel a sense of realism when looking at an image.

Salt Labs, a division of Sewell Development Corp., announces the new Ocule Video Purifier at CES 2013 (Jan. 8-11). The Ocule, using DarbeeVision's patented Darbee Visual Presence™ technology, takes 1080p video (the best possible resolution for home users) and improves the image's depth for a more realistic experience.
The Ocule uses "depth cues" to calculate how to make an image look more compellingly like a real object. Depth cues are the areas of an image that suspend the illusion to the brain that it is looking at an object with depth. When images are captured with a camera and processed, many of these depth cues become neutralized, and the Ocule resurrects these cues mathematically to give back some of the lost detail that is important for the brain to feel a sense of realism when looking at an image.
"The improvement in depth that the Ocule gives 1080p images is pretty amazing," commented Greg Petersen, the lead mechanical engineer at Salt Labs. "It almost makes these images look three-dimensional without having to wear the glasses."
Salt Labs have worked closely with DarbeeVision on this product, and the product will be on display in DarbeeVision's suite at the Las Vegas Hilton during the Consumer Electronics Show.
