Calgary, Canada (February 26, 2006) - Athentech Technologies, Inc. (“Athentech”) today announced an agreement where Silverwire has licensed Athentech’s patented Perfectly Clear image correction technology. Under the agreement, Perfectly Clear will be implemented as part of Silverwire’s kiosk solution. Perfectly Clear’s robustness, small size of 50 KB, blistering speed, and simple integration means effortless and seamless implementation in all photo processing workflows and imaging devices.
“We’re pleased to be working with Silverwire, and look forward to helping Silverwire’s customers increase the number of digital images printed," said Brad Malcolm, President of Athentech. “Silverwire’s strong presence in the European kiosk market and their growing traction in other global regions including the U.S. further increases the opportunity for our Perfectly Clear technology to become available to many more consumers and provide the enviable value of perfectly preserving their precious memories,” continued Malcolm.
Perfectly Clear is award winning technology, invented for the digital world, modeled on the physics principles of light. Unlike traditional analogue based approaches that actually damage true color, create artifacts, and cause clipping, Perfectly Clear is the only solution that operates like the human eye…optimizing and correcting the light in each and every pixel…perfectly preserving the photographer's memory. The result is stunning pictures regardless of how viewed - electronically or printed on media. It’s time to experience Real Color Photography.
