Redefining user experience in mobile digital imaging
Advanced, highly-interactive camera application for Android smartphones
NVIDIA Corporation, the visual computing pioneering company for worldwide technology, the GPU (graphics processing units) leading provider, manufactures a comprehensive range of products within numerous platforms, high-load technologies and processors, combining the development process with an in-depth research, as well as partner and investment networking.
Going Beyond the Traditional Mobile Photography
Conceived to deliver unparalleled end-user experience demonstrating a brand-new approach to mobile image-taking, this powerful technology pushes the envelope of mobile photography with a host of next generation tools and features.
Facilitating Technology Adoption
To aid device manufacturers in adopting the innovative technology, NVIDIA required a special app that would realize low-level communication between the processor, the device, and high-level interaction with the end-user.
As a long-term software engineering service provider to NVIDIA, Softeq has earned a reputation of a reliable development partner. With strong roots both in the mobile app development space and low-level programming, drawing on years of experience of working together with some of the established electronic device and component manufacturers, Softeq was an ideal candidate to be engaged in this project.
Facing a Tough Deadline
The team faced a tough deadline of delivering the app within snap 6 months. Besides, there were also several significant technical constraints to be addressed:
The application also had several relatively simple functional parts — histogram implementation, standard picture taking modes (e.g.basic, timer, interval, “big button” mode), etc.— which posed no implementation problems.
Softeq's team implemented from scratch an advanced, highly-interactive camera application that leverages the power of the Tegra 4 processor.
Innovative distinctive features of the application include:
Photo camera modes
Video camera modes
Photo editing and sharing
