“We are thrilled to officially introduce the new OPPO Reno5 in February. We’re introducing two Reno5 smartphones – Reno5 4G and Reno5 5G in the Philippines. With the steady growth of 5G roll out in the country and our cutting-edge camera technologies, we promise to equip young Filipinos with a Reno smartphone that can inspire them more to creatively #PictureLifeTogether with friends and family in this highly digital-driven lifestyle,” said Raymond Xia, OPPO Philippines Marketing Director.
The Power of Imaging Innovation on 5G
5G has brought more opportunities for people to discover more diverse and complex content. Video, as both a content format and an engaging application in its own right, is set to benefit hugely from the arrival of 5G. The trend of short videos has already set the world ablaze. But with the increased speeds brought by 5G, this trend is set to continue as 5G makes it easier to watch, download, and share videos of all types. With these developments, smartphone habits are also transforming with people becoming more interested in creating video content.
In facing the new demands brought by the 5G era, and in keeping with the Reno series’ long-standing pursuit of providing a superior video and photo experience, OPPO has developed a more advanced and more comprehensive imaging system on the new Reno5 4G and Reno5 5G – the OPPO Full Dimension Fusion (FDF) Portrait Video System. Based on top-end imaging hardware, innovative image processing algorithms, and user-centric software, the OPPO FDF Portrait Video System caters to the diverse video creation needs of users in almost any situation, empowering them to capture the joy of life in every moment with easy-to-create professional-quality video content.
Clarity + Style: Consumer Video Needs in the 5G Era
OPPO’s consumer research has shown that the core need for consumers is the ability to capture clear videos in any situation, and in a way that expresses their own unique style. At the same time, they want this process to be simple and easy to use.
OPPO believes the best way to solve this consumer need is through the perfect integration of imaging hardware and software. The all-new OPPO Full Dimension Fusion Portrait Video System works on the basis of top-end imaging hardware in tandem with flexible, intelligent software, together with OPPO’s extensive expertise in portrait scene detection and portrait feature design. The result is a world-class portrait video experience for users on the new OPPO Reno5 4G and Reno5 5G.
The OPPO Full Dimension Fusion Portrait Video System: Stunning Portraits, Stunning Scenery
The OPPO FDF Portrait Video System is comprised of two engines – the Quality Enhancement Engine and the Portrait Perception Engine. Of the two, it is the Quality Enhancement Engine’s role to ensure users to capture clear images in any scenario, whether that be day, night, in strong backlight, while in motion or while standing still. The Portrait Perception Engine meanwhile, is responsible for establishing strict criteria for the features within a portrait video. These criteria ensure that the portrait subjects and the background are clearly and naturally defined.
- The Quality Enhancement Engine: Crystal Clear. Wherever, Whenever
The Quality Enhancement Engine is a suite of algorithms that ensure users can capture quality video images in any situation. Whether in low light, bright light, or fast motion environments, the engine optimizes settings to deliver images that stay true to life. It is the basis of many of the core imaging functionality on the Reno5 4G and Reno5 5G. Among these is OPPO’s original, industry-leading AI Highlight Video.
- AI Highlight Video
AI Highlight Video uses OPPO’s new generation, proprietary algorithm architecture to combine its industry-leading Ultra Night Video Algorithms and Live HDR Algorithms. By detecting light levels in a scene, it intelligently applies the algorithms to optimally adjust brightness, color and clarity in videos. This is the first time that OPPO has united Ultra Night Video and Live HDR under one feature, which is available on both the Reno5 4G and Reno5 5G front and rear cameras.
AI Highlight Video works by integrating three automatic optimization algorithms:
- Adaptive Brightness Adjustment applies Auto Exposure (AE) – Adaptive Gain to control the exposure time and guarantee the brightness of the image while maintaining a smooth video from frame to frame.
- Adaptive Dynamic Range applies dynamic range adjustments to each frame in a video with Dynamic Range Conversion and Filmic Tone Mapping technology to restore lost colors, brightness, and darkness to their natural levels.
- Adaptive Noise Reduction introduces inter-frame fusion for temporal noise reduction and intra-frame fusion for spatial noise reduction.
- The Portrait Perception Engine: Unique Style, Limitless Creativity
Creating high-quality video content is more than just clear images – users must be empowered to creatively express themselves. OPPO has provided a host of features such as AI Color Portrait (except Reno5 5G), Monochrome Video, AI Mixed Portrait (only available on Reno5 4G) and more that will give users the power to create content with deeper and more creative stories.
To enhance the overall portrait capabilities of the device, the FDF Portrait Video System also includes the Portrait Perception Engine to enable users to shoot in their style. This ensures that no matter what the scenario the subjects are at, the Video Portrait System will process the portrait subject more naturally.
Scene Design Manager
At the heart of the Portrait Perception Engine is OPPO’s Scene Design Manager. The Scene Design Manager uses OPPO’s proprietary top-level portrait scene definition capabilities, together with OPPO’s self-built large database to analyze real-life portrait scenes and the processing requirements needed. It can define strict criteria for different scenarios and assess user-recorded videos against these criteria to provide suitable adjustments needed.
After the Portrait Perception Engine has received the scene assessment from the Scene Design Manager, AI models and deep neural networks work to recognize the portrait subject in the image, separating them from the image background. To increase the accuracy and speed of the AI model, OPPO uses millions of portrait data from its own database to train the industry leading SOTA AI model, following which it conducts further processing to compress the model. With these optimizations, the whole portrait recognition process can be performed in less than a millisecond.
The Portrait Perception Engine works to accurately obtain the specific features of each person and recognize each individual face even if partially obscured. This allows other features such as AI Highlight Video to perform their optimizations – be that brightness, color or contrast adjustments – with better precision. In addition to facial recognition, it can also detect and track moving human bodies within a video and extract these portrait subjects with precision from even the most complex backgrounds.
From beginning to end, the Reno5 4G and Reno5 5G leverage OPPO’s powerful technology to simplify the complicated task of video capture, editing, and sharing off of users’ hands, leaving them with a simple-yet-professional means to record and create their own stories.
