Digital camera manufacturer Point Grey has acquired assets from Nomi related to its people counting sensor business, including Brickstream 2D and 3D sensor hardware and firmware, Device Manager software, WiFi technology and all associated intellectual property, patents and trademarks.
Brickstream 3D is a 3D stereo vision-based people counting and tracking solution with more than 150,000 sensors deployed globally. The acquisition indicates Point Grey’s commitment to supporting Nomi channel partners worldwide with reliable, high performance, and cost-effective people counting products for analytics applications in the retail, security and healthcare spaces.
“Point Grey has been actively developing 3D stereo vision sensors and people counting software since the company’s inception in 1997,” says Vladimir Tucakov, CEO and co-founder of Point Grey. “Over the last 16 years, Nomi/Brickstream has built strong relationships with retail analytics partners around the world and successfully leveraged Point Grey’s sensor technology to create the best solutions available on the market today.”
A number of key Nomi engineering, sales, and administrative personnel will join Point Grey to continue working with partners and ensure long-term continuity in service, support and product development.
