Visual Atoms technology adopted in MPEG-7 CDVS

During the 103rd MPEG meeting in Geneva, Switzerland, we presented an improved version of our local descriptor compression technology for visual search, which was accepted into the current version of the upcoming MPEG-7 CDVS (Compact Descriptors for Visual Search) standard and software test model.

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.
