A method of Visual Scene Preparation for the patients suffering Retinitis Pigmentosa is implemented in hardware for the first time. The scene is captured with two cameras, one visible spectrum and one infra-red, in order to distinguish between the live and non-live objects. The live objects are subsequently emphasized in the output image, thus helping a patient to see the most significant detail with the healthy part of the retina. The implementation uses Verilog language and FPGA platform. A system prototype is analyzed and compared to MATLAB results.
