Rudolphi will lead the company’s newly-established security business unit which will drive demand for Imint’s pioneering video enhancement solutions across a range of key security product categories such as body-worn cameras, PTZ cameras, and more.
UPPSALA, Sweden, March 21, 2023 — IMINT Image Intelligence AB (“Imint”), a global leader in video enhancement software for consumer and professional applications, today announced the appointment of technology industry veteran Erik Rudolphi as Director of Business Development, spearheading the company’s burgeoning growth within the security industry.
Rudolphi joins Imint with over 25 years of experience in international business development and sales management in high-tech industries. Most recently, Rudolphi served as Vice President of Home and Pro Audio at Dirac Research, a Swedish developer of digital audio software solutions.
“For over a decade, Imint has been the de facto leader in video enhancement solutions for the consumer mobile industry, working with many of the world’s largest, most esteemed smartphone companies to equip their devices with video experiences that could once only be found in professional cinema cameras,” stated Andreas Lifvendahl, CEO of Imint.
Imint currently works with leading smartphone manufacturers such as Xiaomi, Motorola, Asus, OnePlus, Oppo, Infinix, and Nothing – in addition to wearables companies such as RealWear, Rokid, and Superhexa.
Continued Lifvendahl, “However, our Vidhance suite of video enhancement solutions is applicable beyond the consumer market and the company is now experiencing strong demand within the commercial industry. With Erik at the helm of our newly-created security business unit, Imint will be well positioned to capitalize on this current demand while driving new demand across a security industry that will increasingly benefit from software solution upgrades to level-up the performance of their cameras.”
Security cameras used across a variety of smart city environments – retail, transportation, entertainment, traffic & transit, policing, and more – are oftentimes plagued by poor video quality. Feeds can be unstable, blurry, and out-of-focus, which can make effective security and surveillance more difficult for commercial operators. Body-worn and PTZ cameras in particular are plagued by concerningly poor video quality.
However, Imint’s Vidhance video enhancement software optimizes the performance of these security cameras in ways that deliver dramatically smoother, sharper, and more stable video feeds – allowing operators to detect and respond to incidents more quickly and efficiently.
“The video captured by body-worn cameras, PTZ cameras, and more is critically important to ensuring public safety, security, and accountability,” added Rudolphi. “Imint’s Vidhance solutions are optimized to handle even the most demanding security environments plagued by fast movements, low light conditions, and constantly changing camera positions. Imint’s move into this new market is a game changer for both the company and the security industry in general, and I’m thrilled to be joining the team at such a critical moment in its history.”
Imint’s existing suite of Vidhance solutions for smart security cameras include Vidhance Video Stabilization, which removes unwanted camera movement to produce video stabilization on par with or exceeding dedicated action cameras; Vidhance Dynamic Motion Blur Reduction, which minimizes the effect of motion-blur in stabilized video; Vidhance Horizon Correction, which automatically levels the horizon using gravity sensor data; and Vidhance Lens Distortion Correction, which removes lens distortion in video recordings and adjusts fisheye effect in ultra-wide FOV cameras.
