Samsung has released a demo of it ISOCELL Zoom anywhere The technology uses the company’s high-resolution 200MP sensors to pull off some cool tricks with video zoom. This feature can “capture the full field of view and magnified areas of the video simultaneously” and automatically track and capture a moving subject within the frame. Samsung Zoom Anyplace was first teased In a press conference earlier this month.
Although the company did not mention exactly which devices will get the new Zoom Anyplace feature, all signs point to the next generation of the company’s flagship Galaxy S24 Ultra phone, which will likely be announced early next year.
Samsung is not the first company to think of a zoom feature like this, after the Honor 90’s Solo Cut Mode. But while Honor is implementing this feature The resolution of both videos is limited to 1080pSamsung says that its version will be able to record in 4K even when zoomed in up to 4x.
Zoom Anyplace is also capable of zooming in and out in the middle of a shot, and Samsung claims it should also work on subjects right at the edge of the frame. At Samsung System LSI Tech Day 2023 earlier this month, Samsung demonstrated the feature through 200MP ISOCELL HP2 sensorthat Announced in January 2023.
In addition to ISOCELL Zoom Anyplace, Samsung has also detailed a feature it calls “End-to-End (E2E) AI Remosaic” which it says should help cut image processing times for 200MP images by half. It works by adjusting the image processing process to perform the resampling and image signal processing steps in parallel, rather than sequentially. The company says this will also reduce data lost due to latency, resulting in images with richer details and colors.
Samsung’s press release doesn’t have any information on when these features might debut, but the company is rumored to be gearing up to launch the Galaxy S24 lineup. As early as January next year.
