MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., Aug. 29, 2013
MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., Aug. 29, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --Pelican Imaging, the
inventor of groundbreaking array camera technology for mobile devices, will
demonstrate new capabilities of its imaging platform at the Uplinq™ 2013
wireless ecosystem conference, which will be held Sept. 3-5, 2013 at the
Hilton San Diego Bayfront Hotel. As Qualcomm's annual conference, Uplinq
provides a cross-platform view of how to exploit the powerful capabilities of

Said Pelican Imaging CEO and President Chris Pickett, "The engineering team at
Pelican has developed some cutting-edge algorithms to enable 3D image and
video capture. We believe there are broad applications for depth-enabled
imaging, and we're looking forward to demonstrating our technology at
Qualcomm's event next week."
Going beyond simple megapixel count, the Pelican array camera provides
complete depth information of the captured scene, allowing users to refocus
after the fact, create 3D models, and perform an unprecedented range of edits.
At under 3mm thickness, Pelican's array camera is about 50% of the thickness
of the best-in-class camera modules shipping in mobile phones today.
