Scalado Announces Expansion Into North America With new US Offices


LUND, Apr. 2 /PRNewswire-AsiaNet/ --


    Scalado (http://www.scalado.com), the mobile imaging experts, has today

announced that it is expanding its global operations with the establishment

of Scalado Inc., a new US division that will operate from offices based in

Silicon Valley and San Diego, California. The Company, which already has

operations in both Europe and Asia, has earned a worldwide reputation for

providing mobile imaging software solutions that are powerful, scalable and

modular for any camera phone.

    Scalado's mission is to make imaging on mobile phones more efficient by

bringing higher usability for end-users, and by cutting hardware costs for

handset manufacturers who are increasingly having to compete with products

which can offer phone, email, camera, and music functions in a single device.

Its new US offices will provide easy access to a number of its key strategic

partners in this area, including companies such as Intel, Kodak, TI, and

MtekVision.


    "The need for super-fast, powerful, memory-efficient image processing

software that can provide a positive user experience and rapid time to market

is greater than ever," says Fadi Abbas, General Manager, Scalado Inc. "This

solution has already gained the attention of many key figures in the

industry, and will therefore boost our market penetration as we continue to

cooperate with other major players in this market to deliver out-of-the-box

solutions to the entire imaging sector."


    Scalado already lists the top five tier 1 mobile phone manufacturers as

its licensees, and has doubled both its revenue and its total number of staff

in the last year, thanks to its ongoing expansion in both Europe and Asia. By

adopting Scalado's technologies, manufacturers are drastically reducing

development and device costs and significantly shortening time to market. For

this reason, more than 300 million mobile phone handsets now feature Scalado

software.


    Scalado is best-known for its CAPS(TM) imaging Software Development Kit

(SDK), an extremely CPU and memory efficient software solution that can

drastically decrease image processing times when capturing, viewing, and

editing large images.


    Likewise, Scalado's SpeedTags enable photographers to instantly capture

multi-megapixel images without any shutter lag, freezing the moment of

capture.


    The Company is also enjoying a greater influence in the sensor and ISP

sectors, thanks to a number of strategic partnerships with the leading

manufacturers in this area. These partnerships will also continue to play a

key role, with projects already underway with Aptina, MtekVision, and others.
