Zegami and Blue Crystal Solutions Australian distribution deal

The visual data management system created by Australian tech developers through the University of Oxford spin-out company Zegami will be available in Australia through an exclusive distribution deal with Blue Crystal Solutions.

Zegami allows for tens of thousands of images, movies or even 3D objects to be sorted, filtered, searched and grouped in real time.

The company was founded in 2015 by Australians Samuel Conway and Roger Noble, and Stephen Taylor from the UK with Oxford University, with £500,000 (around AU$950,000) in seed funding from investors including Parkwalk Advisors and Oxford Sciences Innovation.

As the national reseller of Zegami, Blue Crystal Solutions Managing Director Vito Rinaldi said he is excited to be sharing this innovative product to the country.

“We’re thrilled to have been selected to be a key partner of Zegami. In any meeting we’re in, as soon as we start running a demo of Zegami’s capabilities our clients’ faces light up. Zegami is making databases a little bit sexy!”

Zegami technology is able to bring millions of pieces of information together from multiple data sources to combine them in a simple and intuitive user interface.

The company said Zegami’s image-based search, image tagging capability, map views and dynamic BI capabilities are something no other enterprise-level software is capable of doing today with such large locally hosted datasets.

“Whether in business, research or in our personal lives, we generate thousands of images every day and every image has its associated data. There can be no doubt that storage has become cheaper and more efficient over time but how do we find them again, let alone generate any meaningful information from it. Zegami turns this concept on its head,” said Samuel Conway, CEO of Zegami.

“Data to decision is the new catchcry amongst companies and researchers today. Throw in ‘big data’ and we need to re-evaluate just how we do this analysis to find what we are looking for.

“Zegami is enabling technology that is leading to new discoveries and observations in large image datasets.”

The sales and implementation team for the product will be based in Adelaide.
