Open operating systems provider Symbian announced a licensing agreement with Scalado to integrate the firm's mobile imaging software into the Symbian OS. According to Symbian, the Scalado solution will improve imaging performance for higher megapixel images as well as deliver faster rendering and improved editing features while reducing memory consumption. Scalado's patented Random Access JPEG technology also enables imaging operations to occur while the image is in compressed form, minimizing RAM consumption. The three-year license is retroactive to Symbian OS v9.3 and v9.4--per terms of the deal, Symbian and Scalado will also create a joint team of imaging and camera engineers.
