Our patented IP is embeddable and can be implemented purely in software or silicon, without needing any apps or filters.

We have close relationships with imaging science departments at a number of universities, including the world-renowned Colour Lab at the University of East Anglia. Our team, which is made up of PhD graduates, professors, developers and researchers, collectively has over 100 years’ expertise in image processing R&D.

Our senior executives have held leadership roles in noteworthy technology organisations, including SwiftKey (acquired by Microsoft), Imsense, TTPcom, Alphamosaic (acquired by Broadcom) and Apical (acquired by ARM).

We’ve already developed a suite of exciting technologies for smartphones and on demand broadcast. The same technology, however can be incorporated into any application with sophisticated imaging requirements, from security and surveillance systems to webcams, driverless cars and drones.
