Press Release   •   Feb 15, 2011 11:08 EST

Experts will showcase Rewind, the best-ever burst capture experience, at the Mobile World Congress.

Scalado, a world-leading provider of high-performance imaging technologies, applications and services for the mobile industry, has today announced that it will be offering a demonstration of its ground-breaking new Camera Framework on Qualcomm's MSM8x60™ processor at the GSMA Mobile World Congress (MWC) in Barcelona from 14-17 February.

The integration of Scalado's advanced Camera Framework with Qualcomm's powerful dual-core processor will make it possible for end-users to perform a number of next-generation image capture techniques on a mobile device for the first time. Qualcomm's processor will be the first to optimize Scalado's innovative "Rewind" application, an exciting tool which makes it possible to pick and choose the best faces from different versions of a group photo in order to create a single perfect shot.

"No digital still camera can perform like this," says Fadi Abbas, Scalado's VP BizDev/CMO and Co-founder. "By integrating the Camera Framework concept with Qualcomm’s hardware imaging subsystem, we are driving the future of imaging by enabling new features and use cases that are only possible on a Smartphone.”

"We are pleased to be working with Scalado's new Camera Framework to enhance the way images are captured, manipulated and shared,“ says Tim Yates, director of product management at Qualcomm. “Scalado’s imaging breakthroughs go beyond the traditional point and shoot camera.”

With innovations like these, Scalado has quickly become the centre of gravity for ground-breaking capability in the mobile imaging industry. The company continues to forge strong links with other key players in this market to deliver advanced functionality that is only possible with vertical integration from platform to the user interface (UI). Testament to this fact is that Scalado lists all of the top five tier 1 mobile phone manufacturers and top 10 ISP/Sensor companies as its licensees, and that its imaging technology will soon feature on more than 1 billion mobile devices across the globe.
