Samsung Electronics integrates Scalado SpeedTags technology


Next generation of Samsung’s multi-megapixel camera modules will incorporate Scalado SpeedTags™ Technology for accelerated image capture and management

Lund — Samsung Electronics has signed a contract with Scalado 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, including zero shutter lag, burst mode, and other sophisticated features.”

Implementation of SpeedTags into the camera chip will support the use 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 files that will dramatically improve the experience of viewing images on a mobile device.

“Accelerated multi-megapixel technology is being driven by the end-user experience, and also by the demand for high resolution, easy-to-use, problem-free and instant cameras and camera phones", added Magnus Ingelsten, VP Marketing at Scalado.
