Richard Geruson, NexOptic Chairman, Announces a New Phase for ALIIS™ Integration Into Qualcomm 5G Chipsets
VANCOUVER, British Columbia, September 14, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) – NexOptic Technology Corp. (“NexOptic” or the “Company”) (TSX VENTURE: NXO) (OTCQB: NXOPF) (FSE: E3O1), an innovator in cutting-edge Artificial Intelligence (AI) announces that it has begun executing its next phase of integration with Qualcomm.
As a Qualcomm Advantage Network (“QAN”) ecosystem partner, the Company has begun a new phase of advanced build into Qualcomm’s camera firmware. This brand-new collaboration offers NexOptic a deeper integration into Qualcomm’s new Snapdragon chipsets than is possible on other platforms, creating unique and exciting opportunities for NexOptic’s image signal processing topologies that can leverage a combination of hardware and software. Previous phases integrated ALIIS™ onto 2019 Snapdragon chipsets and delivered real time video enhancement at 720p 30FPS. Now, new advancements to NexOptic’s Aliis algorithms as well as performance gains in Qualcomm’s AI accelerator chips have already yielded faster processing abilities at higher resolutions for real time video enhancement. This project is allowing OEMs and ODMs to see first-hand the power of Aliis and provide them access to a high-quality reference implementation that can be adapted into multiple standard and unique applications and use cases.
“As our AI solutions become more advanced, we’re able to provide an increasing number of imaging solutions for customers to select from, separately or in customized bundles,” said Rich Geruson, NexOptic Chairman. “It’s exciting to be able to leverage the ingenuity and power of partners like Qualcomm to create and deliver such cutting-edge solutions.”

ALIIS™ in a Nutshell
ALIIS™ (All Light Intelligent Imaging Solutions) is a machine-learning AI suite providing instant enhancement to images and videos in the areas of edge processing, shutter speed, resolution and sharpness, image-noise and motion-blur, and image colour and detail. These patented and patent pending solutions can be integrated with imaging devices such as smartphones, smart security cameras, Internet of Things (IoT) devices, automotive platforms, medical imaging technologies, DSLR cameras and more. Additionally, Aliis does all of this while compressing data and reducing media file size, making it ideal for the storage and transmission of image data.
Qualcomm featured Aliis in its 5G Summit 2021 press kit announcing the new 700-series chipset for mobile devices: the Snapdragon 778G, and a recent webinar hosted by Arm and their Senior AI Ecosystem Manager set a live global audience attendance record.
