Visual Century was created in 2001 by a group of researchers and graduate students from the Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona (UAB) with the goal of turning research on Computer Vision and Multimedia into innovative software products.
The main goal of the Department of Research at Visual Century is to develop state-of-the-art technology that will keep the pace of innovation in our products. Highly qualified and experienced researchers on Computer Vision and Multimedia Technologies create and develop models, methods and algorithms to answer user demands and generate new ideas and products.
The Department of Research is located in the main offices of Visual Century at Barcelona Activa. In this way, there is a close connection with product developers and marketing staff. Some of our projects are partially funded by local, national or international institutions like the Catalan Government via CIDEM (Centre d´Innovació i Desenvolupament Empresarial).
Visual Century Research works in close cooperation with researchers at the UAB. We also develop projects in cooperation with other companies and research centers like Histeresys and CEPHIS (Centre de Codisseny i Prototipat de Solucions Hardware). Also, there is a commitment with our major partner, Software AG, to do joint research on Multimedia Content Management Systems.
