Another Visual Atoms technology adopted in MPEG-7 CDVS

Our newly developed technology on the efficient encoding and decoding of compressed local descriptors for visual search applications was adopted into the current version of the upcoming MPEG-7 CDVS (Compact Descriptors for Visual Search) standard and test model during the 105th MPEG meeting in Vienna, Austria.

Visual search technologies allow identification of objects and scenes in images captured at different times, from different viewpoints, and using different cameras and resolutions, with applications from e-commerce to search engines to visual content management and discovery.
