Aptina Licenses Scalado's SpeedTags Technology

Aptina announced that it will integrate Scalado SpeedTags technology into future mobile 3MP and above multi-megapixel SOC designs. Scalado technology assists in managing the larger files produced by the high resolution image sensor improving overall JPEG image handling performance within CPU restrictions of mobile phone. There is not that much known about SpeedTags. Probably it's a set of special hardware hooks to accelerate subroutines from Scalado CAPS imaging SDK.

About a year ago Omnivision made a similar announcement. So by now the two world's biggest CMOS sensor vendors support Scalado. The word is that Nokia, Samsung and Sony Ericsson develop camera phone applications using Scalado CAPS.
