Samsung Selects Scalado SpeedTags

Samsung Electronics has signed a contract with Scalado to licence and integrate Scalado SpeedTags technology into future mobile multi-megapixel SOC (Systems On a Chip) designs featuring 3 megapixels (MP) and above. Scalados technology will be included in Samsungs 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. The camera modules using the new technology will be used in cameraphones and PDAs.
Scalado says that the implementation of SpeedTags will accelerate the speed and enhance the performance of its CAPS imaging suite, which is designed to provide enhanced functionality to cameraphones. As a result, says Scalado, 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.
Customers who use Samsungs 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, says 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.
