Scalado was founded in 2000 in the Swedish town of Lund. The company’s original mission was to provide a simple way to view high-quality images of products over low bandwidth connections for e-commerce sites, but Scalado subsequently changed its focus to the mobile market, with a vision to redefine and improve the capture of moments and the experience of memories on any screen, anywhere.
Nokia’s collaboration with Scalado began with the launch of the Nseries, when Scalado provided the image editor for the N90 device. From then, Scalado was increasingly involved in the development of new and innovative capture and relive technology, such as Nokia Creative Studio. Nokia has shipped more than a billion devices containing Scalado technology around the world.
In July 2012, Nokia acquired Scalado’s key technologies and intellectual property, with many of its people transferring to Nokia. Within months, Nokia released Nokia Smart Shoot and an alpha version of Nokia Beamer. The integration of the talented people and technologies has proven to be a great success, with innovative new camera software such as Nokia Smart Cam and the amazing reframing feature of Nokia Pro Cam seeing the light of day within a year of the deal.
Nokia has a long-standing track record of helping companies develop and prosper through investment, acquisition and cooperation.
