In 2013, AkzoNobel partnered with String on what was initially an R&D project, to explore the possibility of a computer vision based broad wall visualisation application.
Computer vision is a discipline within the field of computer science, which focuses on processing and applying visual data from the real world, in a similar way to how our own eyes and brains work.
Handling the diverse range of room environments and lighting conditions which may be encountered, presented a number of technical challenges. In order to overcome these, String researched and developed proprietary algorithms bespoke to the Visualizer, to analyse and process live video from the device camera.
