ArcSoft Inc., founded by Dr. Michael Deng in 1994 and headquartered in Silicon Valley of California, is a global leader in computational photography and visual computing technologies.
Believing camera and image everywhere, since its founding, ArcSoft has been focusing in the technology and software applications related to imaging and computer vision on main stream devices and platforms, such as smartphones, DSC, VR cameras, drone cameras, IP cameras, smart TVs, robots, smart refrigerators, smart vacuum cleaners, automobile, PCs, tablets, servers, and internet applications.
Normally deeply embedded in customers’ devices, ArcSoft’s software imaging solutions in the past ten years have been shipped with billions of hardware products, helping to improve the capture process, picture/video quality and users experience of mobile photography, enable specific visual features and/or even provide full applications. Customers include Amazon, Asus, Canon, Gionee, Gree, Hitachi, HP, Huawei, Intel, Lenovo, LG, LeTV, Midea, Nikon, Olympus, Panasonic, Qualcomm, Samsung, Sony, Vivo, Xiaomi, and many others.
During its 20 year history, ArcSoft Inc., has successfully built up a top R&D team in the industry with hundreds of scientists and engineers specialized in all aspects related to the technologies of imaging and computer vision. We are actually called by our mobile phone customers the one-stop shopping solution provider on software imaging. More beyond its capability on inventing various advanced imaging algorithms, ArcSoft is also the best and usually the first in the world of enabling or applying complex software algorithms on devices requiring high quality imaging with high performance and low power consumption, but very limited computing resources. These combined capabilities enable our customers offer to the market with innovative features on their existing hardware platform for value differentiations and early time-to-the-market, or with existing features on a cheaper hardware configuration.
Moving forward, by continuously putting over 30% of its revenue back into the R&D, ArcSoft invests heavily in the new visual methodologies and algorithms related to the dual-cameras on mobile phone, mobile 3D modeling, visual deep learning, augmented reality (AR), virtual reality (VR), and imaging artificial intelligence (AI). These efforts will result in more innovative software applications, continuously helping our OEM customers provide the most competitive and high value hardware products to the end users in the future.
