EyeQ Announces New AI Scene Detection to Further Revolutionize Automatic Image Correction Technology
- AI Scene Detection Able to Identify the Scene of a Photo and Automatically Apply Precise Corrections Based on the Specific Scene or Lighting Condition
- AI Scene Detection Is the First of Three AI-Based Transformational Innovations to Be Released by Eyeq This Year
EyeQ Imaging Inc., the maker of Perfectly Clear automatic photo correction technology, announced it has added AI Scene Detection as an update to Perfectly Clear and will be making it available to customers worldwide. AI Scene Detection is able to identify a scene or lighting condition and then apply a correction with predetermined parameters. This ensures the correction is as accurate as possible and most appropriate to the scene or lighting condition in that photo.
“Our talented team of AI scientists has looked at the 100 million images we process per day to come up with innovative ways to leverage artificial intelligence to make our technology even smarter for customers. The first release this year – stay tuned for two more – is AI Scene Detection. It’s an excellent use of AI blended with our classical imaging algorithms where we train our platform to detect specific scenes and lighting and make the perfect corrections based on the scene. The result is greater image intelligence with more targeted and robust corrections – allowing for greater workflow operational efficiency and more visually pleasing images to the customer,” said Brad Malcolm, Chief Executive Officer and co-founder of EyeQ.
AI Scene Detection takes Perfectly Clear’s automatic image enhancement to the next level, which can be seen clearly in comparison photos. Perfectly Clear’s iAuto feature has traditionally applied an intelligent correction, but the universal AI Scene Detection now being applied has a much wider range for accuracy.
Jeff Stephens, EyeQ’s Chief Technology Officer and co-founder, noted: “If you have an image with a baby in it, you don’t want a harsh, vibrant correction to be made. You’ll want a softened image and that is what the AI predicts and then corrects for. The opposite is true with something like a sunset where we can push the color vibrancy and use our scene detection preset to make the photo pop. We remain totally focused on enhancing photos and applying the best corrective techniques for our customers.”
There are a dozen scenes and lighting conditions that are currently included in the AI Scene Detection platform. Customers are also able to request specific scene categories to be created and customized for them. AI Scene Detection can also be licensed separately and integrated into any workflow.

Malcolm and Stephens noted a great deal of innovation, research and science went into developing the new feature from EyeQ. These efforts included testing the effectiveness and applicability with a number of major customers such as Labo Network, Japan’s leading photo printing company.
“At Labo Network, we print enough photos each year to stretch around the world 10 times. We see any opportunity to print these more efficiently and with better quality output to be a win for our company. EyeQ’s updated Perfectly Clear technology keeps getting better as they enhance it and including this AI correction aspect shows their innovative mindset. I look forward to seeing what they come up with next to keep improving the photo printing process,” said Shoichi Sezaki, Labo Network’s Head of Quality and Lab Systems Engineering.
