Enhanced Image Quality … and Resolution, by Kono

Grace Park as Kono Kalakaua

A lesson in imaging training, from TV. Amazing what you can pick up from reruns. In this case, Hawaii Five-0, 2013. Episode: Imi Loko Ka ‘Uhane (Seek Within Ones’s Soul)

Story: The Savannah Walker Show: Savannah takes a thrilling ride-along with Hawaii’s elite crime-fighting task force, Five-O. Police officer Kono Kalakaua is played by Grace Park. Savannah Walker is played by Aisha Tyler, with dialogue double, Wendy Pearson.

Scene: Hawaii Five-O Tech. Police Lab.

Kono: … so what we did was we took the video you shot and enhanced it in order to get a better look at our suspect, Wo Fat. 

Savannah: When you say “enhanced,” what do you mean exactly? 

Kono: Uh, well, Five-O is, um, equipped with the latest in digital forensic hardware, which allows us to improve image quality by manipulating zoom, frame rate, um, angle, uh, at the same time increasing resolution. 

Savannah: Wow. Who on the Five-O team is well-versed in all this high-tech wizardry? 

Kono: Uh, that would be me. (chuckles) 

Savannah: How on earth did you get so tech-savvy? 

Kono: Xbox.

Me: (thinks) um, who knew!
