Press Release   •   Feb 16, 2010 03:00 EST

Scalado continues its North American-focused expansion through its agreement with Qualcomm. Scalado’s imaging technology is already embedded in over half a billion mobile phones. By working with Qualcomm, new imaging capabilities are possible by taking advantage of dedicated multimedia accelerators found in the latest generation of Qualcomm chipsets. The combination of Scalado and Qualcomm imaging technologies delivers a significantly improved imaging experience on popular smartphones.

”For us at Scalado, this important collaboration with Qualcomm means that we will further expand our existing markets with one of the leading companies in the mobile phone industry,” says Fadi Abbas, CMO/CSO and Scalado founder.

SmartPhone manufacturers who are existing Scalado and Qualcomm partners are the potential beneficiaries of this collaboration, to deliver imaging experiences such as Zero Shutter Lag and TimeWarp. Mobile imaging trends are pointing towards 8M-12 megapixel imagers in high volume smartphones, and this requires smarter, more powerful technology to capture, process and edit hundreds of high resolution images with gorgeous user interfaces, imperceptible latency and reasonable memory footprint.

“Qualcomm is committed to continually providing our customers with industry-leading chipset solutions, and ultimately delivering more compelling experiences to mobile users,” said Jason Bremner, vice president of product management for Qualcomm CDMA Technologies. “Our work with Scalado is part of that commitment, enabling us to ensure that the cameraphone functionality our chipsets support is second to none.”

Qualcomm and Scalado will demonstrate their next-generation imaging solutions at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona (15-18 February).
