What is C3 Imaging?

What do we mean by ‘Cognitive’?,

Cognitive implies that there is more to an image than a collection of pixels. In the same way that photography captures a ‘moment in time’, our digital devices are capable of extending this concept to ‘understanding’ that moment …

‘Connected’ ?,

Unless you’ve been living under a rock you’ve probably heard of the ‘Internet of Things’? Well imaging enters a new paradigm when you link it to the capabilities of today’s networks and mobile devices – but we are interested in much more than simply uploading images and video to the Cloud; when you combine connectivity with advanced ‘edge’ processing then you are at the frontiers  of Connected imaging …

and ‘Computational’?

A key difference between traditional photography and videography is that digital technology allows us to obtain multiple image frames and the power of today’s devices enables these to be processed in real-time on the device. Some of our lead investigators were pioneers, introducing red-eye correction and face tracking on digital devices more than a decade ago.
