Germantown, MD (PRWEB) August 20, 2009
Mantaro, an embedded product development services firm, and Sparsense, a recognized leader in developing and licensing image and signal processing technology, announced today an exclusive partnership to offer extremely high performance digital image processing services and solutions, such as 3D MRI processing accelerators for Real Time medical imaging applications.
Sparsense uses proprietary digital signal processing algorithms to improve the image quality of many types of sampled images. These algorithms allow undersampled or noisy images to produce image quality of systems with 10 times the samples. The resulting Sparsense processed images do not exhibit blurred edges when reconstructing them from noisy samples. The technology itself has broad applicability in the processing of various types of digital signals.
Mantaro has worked with Sparsense over the past year on the development of a powerful, custom hardware algorithm accelerator platform for use in medical imaging applications. Through the development process, Mantaro has gained significant expertise and knowledge of the Sparsense technology and other potential areas for its application. Companies interested in applying Sparsense technology to difficult image or signal processing applications can leverage Sparsense and Mantaro's combined experience to develop tailored solutions.
"Sparsense's signal processing algorithms are uniquely efficient in generating and processing sparse representations of signals," said Gabriel Mayo, Mantaro's Chief Technology Officer. "This technology will allow our customers to realize the benefits of a much higher performance image and signal processing platform for their applications."
"Leveraging Mantaro's high performance processing platform development expertise will allow us to deliver real time imaging and signal processing solutions to applications that are not possible on general purpose computing platforms," explained Zsolt Palotai, PhD, Sparsense President. "The combination of Mantaro's expertise and technology, along with Sparsense's algorithms, will enable the development of many products that were not cost-effective before. One such product is a platform for minimally invasive surgery using MRI imaging. High-quality MR imaging at video speeds enables medical procedures that were previously not possible."
Mantaro's exclusive partnership with Sparsense will offer our customers a range of services, from custom algorithm development to the development of full image processing software and hardware systems that can deliver unmatched signal processing performance to customers who are building multimedia and industrial applications for health care and government applications.
Detailed information and a video presentation of Sparsense technology are available at the Mantaro website.
Sparsense, Inc. was launched in 2007 to develop and commercialize a novel signal processing technology that was invented by Zsolt Palotai, PhD. The company name is derived from the term "sparse sensing." The company's founders are Zsolt Palotai, PhD and Professor Andras Lorincz, who joined the venture as its Chief Technology Officer.
