Camera Bravia Engine 2

So Guyz

The Mobile BRAVIAŽ Engine is a set of Sony-specific image processing algorithms which are applied to the rendering process when drawing an image or video on the screen of your smartphone. It’s on by default, in those Xperia™ smartphones where it’s applicable, but it can be turned off in the settings menu of your phone. The benefit of using Mobile BRAVIAŽ Engine is that the viewing experience is improved in a way that is optimised to fit the human eye, with more details, enhanced colours and less noise. In the video above, we show you the benefit of the Mobile BRAVIAŽ Engine and explain how it works.

When the Mobile BRAVIAŽ Engine is running, a software layer is applied to the decoding step for images and video, where the Mobile BRAVIAŽ Engine processing is done in real-time. This means that it does not alter the image or video file, but only the way it is represented on the screen. The Mobile BRAVIAŽ Engine works intelligently and applies the effects depending on input, which means that the effects are applied in a way that is individually calculated for each picture. In addition, all of the algorithms in Mobile BRAVIAŽ Engine are calibrated for each Xperia™ product to improve image quality on the specific display. Below, we will describe the different effects along with images illustrating these effects.
Contrast enhancement brings out the details

With the Mobile BRAVIAŽ Engine, the contrast in images and video is enhanced by making the darkest parts slightly darker, which results in a perceived higher contrast that brings out details in the picture. This contrast enhancement is adapted to each individual image to avoid further reduction of brightness on images that are already dark, and to strengthen the contrast enhancement on vivid and bright images. As seen in the illustration below, this will give your images and videos more dynamics and better perceived details.

Colour Management gives deep and vivid colours
Colour saturation is also increased for specified colour ranges when you are running the Mobile BRAVIAŽ Engine, which will make the colours deeper and more vivid. In general, the human eye prefers deeper colours on photo and video. This is especially true for natural scenes. As you can see in the illustration below, the enhancement level and the enhanced colour ranges are calibrated to suit human eyes when running Mobile BRAVIAŽ Engine. This makes sure that colours on photo and video are represented in a way that is pleasant for the eye.

Noise reduction for clear video viewing
Another use case where Mobile BRAVIAŽ Engine comes in useful is when you are streaming low-quality video from online sources, as the compression algorithms usually used by common web services such as YouTube, often cause distortions and many artefacts in the image. For videos stored locally on your smartphone, there might also be a risk of noise depending on the video quality of your clip. The noise artefacts that most commonly occur when using such compression algorithms are Block Noise , and Mosquito Noise .
Now by using Mobile BRAVIAŽ Engine, all of these disturbances are greatly reduced as it reduces temporal and spatial noise caused by these artefacts in low-resolution video. Spatial noise reduction means that image noise reduction is applied to each individual frame, and temporal noise reduction means that noise between frames is reduced. The Mobile BRAVIAŽ Engine combines these two methods to get an improved user experience when watching videos.

Sharpness filter increases detail level
As a final step in the Mobile BRAVIAŽ Engine, a sharpness filter is applied to increase the overall detail level in the image. This is done by enhancing the edges, as seen below, and the enhancement is calibrated to increase contrast between different image areas, but still avoid an increase of the amount of noise present in the image.

As you can see, the effects of the Mobile BRAVIAŽ Engine enhance the image viewing experience drastically. And the best thing is that you basically only have to pick up a fairly modern Sony Xperia™ smartphone to enjoy it, as this Sony imaging technology is included in most Xperia™ smartphones.

Name doesn't matter here, CWM or Any other Custom Recovery is necessary for flashing this.

Thanks Abhinav, for taking some time out for replying... Wish you the best for your exams..
I flashed this file now... Feel that the sharpness of pictures is better... But original Xolo Q700 display quality is itself so good, that the difference is marginal... Can anyone else share his/ her experience?
