Business Wire: I3A has announced the 2011 winners of its VISION 2020 Imaging Innovation Awards presented at 6Sight Future of Imaging Summit:
Gold: InVisage for its QuantumFilm image sensors, see the earlier announcement from the company.
Silver: 36Pix of Montreal, for its ChromaStar chroma keying engine technology. Photographers take their photos using a green background and send them online to 36Pix to remove the green backgrounds. The photos go back over the web to the photographers (or photo labs) so that they can then insert their own backgrounds.
Bronze: Aptina for its HDR technology, including the first system-on-a-chip HDR product, which enables camera phones to capture high quality images and video in diverse illumination conditions.
