Suometry Inc’s Real-Time 360 Depth and Vision Camera wins CES 2019 Innovation Award
Suometry Inc announced today that it has been named a CES® 2019 Innovation Awards Honoree for The Suometry OmniPolar™ camera. The announcement was made during CES Unveiled New York, an invite-only tech event bringing together top media, exhibitors and industry leaders for a sneak peek of the products and trends expected at CES 2019, which will run January 8-11, 2019 in Las Vegas, NV.
An annual program that celebrates outstanding design, the CES Innovation Awards recognizes honorees across 28 product categories. A panel of judges, including designers, engineers and members of the tech media, reviews submissions based on design, functionality, consumer appeal, engineering and how the products compare with competition.
The Suometry OmniPolar™ camera enables true real-time stereoscopic stitching and capture. It can generate both high-quality 3D 360° videos as well as depth maps in real-time with computationally light processing, and can support multiple lens/sensor combinations depending on the application.
“We are incredibly honored to receive the CES© 2019 Innovation Award,” said Isadore Katz, CEO of Suometry, Inc. “Our camera, with its simplicity and performance, delivers breakthrough capabilities for XR, ADAS, and embedded applications. For the past few years many have claimed that live XR broadcast has failed. We believe the market did not have the right tools for success. With the Suometry camera, now it does.”
The CES Innovation Awards are sponsored by the Consumer Technology Association (CTA)™, owner and producer of CES, the world’s largest and most influential technology event. CTA has been recognizing achievements in product design and engineering since 1976.
The OmniPolar™ camera will be on display in the Innovation Awards Showcase at the upcoming CES 2019, where Suometry will also be exhibiting. The complete list of CES 2019 Innovation Honorees, including product descriptions and photos, can be found at CES.tech/Innovation.
