Optics and Image Processing

Keeping an Eye on the Fast-Paced Image Processing and Optic Technology Fields
The world is increasingly dependent upon capturing and processing image data; this type of technology is the backbone of a myriad of lucrative applications, ranging from consumer electronics (with its need for complicated, flashy, accessible and often miniaturized visual presentations) to behind-the-scenes fields reliant on imaging and signal processing, such as exploration geophysics. Whether your invention relates to geometric or medical optics, image capture, color processing, signal processing, transformations, compositing, recognition, or wavelets, Volpe and Koenig can help you build a fortress around your intellectual property and ensure that you reap the benefits of your creativity.

As optics and image processing technologies change in the blink of an eye, the IP leaders at Volpe and Koenig are in a position to protect your innovations and trademark. Work with the professionals who understand your business best, whether your needs are for patents or strategic planning.
