A new technology is about to be showcased at Mobile World Congress. Scalado, a world-leading provider of high-performance imaging technologies is set to release their newest product, Scalado Remove. Scalado Remove will help you capture the perfect picture by removing unwanted subjects from the picture.
How many times have you tried to take a picture of someone with a bunch of moving subjects in the background? It happens all the time, especially while on vacation. With Scalado Remove, you will be able to take pictures of your subject, and then remove unwanted subjects from the background, giving you a better picture of your intended subject.
Scalado Remove works by taking multiple images in a row. Once the pictures are snapped, it analyzes them and lets you remove potentially unwanted objects from the picture. The removable objects are moving objects that were captured when the picture was taken.
I don’t know about you guys, but this definitely looks like something I would like to have on my phone. Although the folks at Engadget were able to install an app on their Galaxy Nexus and Galaxy S II phones to test Scalado Remove, the technology is most-likely to be licensed to OEMS. So you might end up seeing it in your future HTC, Samsung, Motorola, or other manufacturer phone.
Check out the full press release below. We hope to bring you more coverage during Mobile World Congress, which is right around the corner!
Scalado excitedly introduce the world’s first object removal innovation in a mobile device
“Remove” automatically deletes unwanted details in captured imaging
Scalado, a world-leading provider of high-performance imaging technologies, applications and services for the mobile industry, have today announced the release of a new revolutionizing product named Remove. Remove is a technology that automatically highlights and removes any unwanted object from a captured photo. It is the world’s first Object removal software to be released on a mobile device.
Remove solves common photographic problems with unwanted objects in captured images, such as people getting in the way of our camera shot. Remove detects and selects the unwanted objects which simply can be removed automatically or by touching the selections on the screen or after capturing the image.
“After Zero Shutter Lag, Burst, and Rewind Scalado continue leading and changing the capturing landscape by bringing in new unique and needed capturing innovations”, says Fadi Abbas, CMO/VP BizDev and Co-founder of Scalado, -“What differentiate us is the combination of customers who believe in our superiority, leading industry partners and continuous innovations”.
Last year Scalado released several innovations, e.g. the Rewind technology which allows the users to capture perfect group shots by automatically selecting the best shots in a burst and merging them into one perfect image. Rewind is already shipping in millions of mobile phones.
“Our team has been working hard to maintain its leading innovation position in the camera capturing field”, says Sami Niemi, CTO and Co-founder of Scalado, -“Remove shows that our technologies are setting the guidelines for the whole market”.
Scalado will premiere showcase Remove, the first of many new innovations planned this year, at the 2012 Mobile World Conference in Barcelona, February 27th to March 1st.
