Samsung Electronics has signed a contract with Scalado, the leader in mobile imaging software solutions, to licence and integrate Scalado SpeedTags™ technology into future mobile multi-megapixel SOC designs featuring 3 megapixels (MP) and above. Scalado’s technology will be included in Samsung’s image sensor modules in order to help manage the larger files produced by the high-resolution image sensor, thereby improving overall JPEG image handling performance significantly. The camera modules using the new technology will be used in mobile devices, such as camera phones and PDAs.
“Customers who use Samsung's mobile multi-megapixel image sensors combined with Camera Engine Technology from Scalado will benefit from this important collaboration, as the performance and features, on offer, will now be able to top even the best digital still camera performance, even in low cost camera phones,” said Fadi Abbas, VP of Business Development at Scalado. “The combination enables outstanding results zero shutter lag, burst mode, and other sophisticated features and creates exceptional performance and superior user experience.”
The implementation of SpeedTags will accelerate the speed and enhance the performance of Scalado’s CAPS™ imaging suite, a powerful solution which is focused on providing enhanced functionality to camera phones. As a result, users can expect increased performance and data handling capabilities for high resolution images that will dramatically improve the experience of viewing images on a mobile device.
