In 2000, a team of computer scientists founded Image Metrics to create breakthrough technologies based on computer vision, facial analysis and facial recognition. Six patents and 60 man-years of research later, Image Metrics today delivers powerful and easy-to-use software to digital media, consumer electronics, interactive entertainment and other software companies whose goal is to give their users the most compelling interactive experiences possible.
Image Metrics proprietary algorithms make the recognition and realtime animation of nuanced expressions and emotion possible with nothing more than a camera on a laptop, tablet or smartphone. The opportunities for self-representation and personalized content control are endless. Image Metrics technology can be integrated into computers, tablets, smartphones, interactive television and other digital devices, and strategically leveraged in game or apps. The company is headquartered in El Segundo, CA; has additional offices in Las Vegas, NV; and the research center is located in Manchester, UK.
