On April 18th, 2017, Imint announced that a 3-year license agreement with Japanese Sharp Corporation were established, related to Vidhance video stabilization. At a later stage, Imint announced the Aquos R smartphone as the first product launched. The parties have now agreed to extend the license agreement by incorporating more Vidhance functionality, by effecting an amendment to the original agreement.
Sharp AQUOS R2 will be launched in June 2018. This new model will be equipped with a super wide-angle camera, to enable users to take more cinema-like video with a larger field of view. Imint is proud to provide the super wide-angle stabilization feature as well as the latest version of Vidhance Stabilization as key components of this solution.
Andreas Lifvendahl, CEO, commented:
“Our co-operation with Sharp has been successful, and we are very proud of the confidence in us reflected in this extension of our business together. Sharp is a very experienced and technically competent customer, with high demands on its suppliers. We see this extension as a sign that we have so far lived up to these expectations. The first Aquos smartphones with Vidhance has been well received by the market, and we believe we are just in the beginning of our relationship with Sharp.”
