TORONTO, Sept. 30 /CNW/ - iseemedia Inc. (TSX-VENTURE:IEE), a leading
provider of rich content creation and delivery solutions for web and wireless
markets, announced today that it is collaborating with AMD (NYSE: AMD) to
bring its award-winning panorama creation and other image enhancement
technologies to mobile camera phones. Through this effort, iseemedia's

digital cameras is now offered on AMD Imageon(TM) M180 media processor
designed for mobile phones and other handheld devices. Work is ongoing to
integrate this technology with AMD Imageon application processors as well.

mobile consumer experience. The AMD Imageon M180 media processor offers
high-quality image signal processing (ISP) with features such as digital image
stabilization (anti-shake) and other enhancements for a very compelling,
multi-megapixel camera solution for mobile phones.

provide the ability to create high-quality; high-resolution panoramic images
by implementing additional real-time image enhancement technologies, such as
lens distortion and tilt correction, to further improve picture quality. With
this collaboration, mobile phone manufacturers implementing iseemedia
solutions can benefit from outstanding ISP features and rapid processing
enabled by AMD technology.
"iseemedia's iseephoto(TM) panorama creation solution enables mobile
consumers to capture high-quality images and seamlessly create 3D panoramas on
the go," said Andrew Thompson, director of marketing for AMD's Handheld
division. "Optimizing iseemedia solutions to leverage the processing power of
AMD Imageon processors is one more example of how AMD delivers The Ultimate
Visual Experience(TM) to consumers when and where they choose."
According to a recent industry research report, global shipments of
camera phones will jump from over 700 million units in 2007 to surpass
1.3 billion in 2012 accounting for nearly 90% of all mobile phone shipments in
