PointGrab, the global leader in advanced gesture recognition software solutions, has been honored by Frost & Sullivan with the 2013 European Technology Innovation Award. PointGrab was recognized for its achievements in “Gesture Recognition for Consumer Electronics” as the leader, at the forefront of technological breakthroughs which will be instrumental in mass consumer adoption. PointGrab’s gesture control solutions have enhanced the functional capability of consumer electronic devices such as laptops, tablets, smartphones and televisions.

The company has succeeded in refining software algorithms and bringing an accurate motion-sensing technology to day-to-day applications. With the use of a standard 2D camera, and the recently unveiled proprietary Hybrid Action Recognition technology, PointGrab enabled devices boast a 98 percent gesture recognition accuracy (in optimal conditions).

“Israeli technology companies continue to innovate and shine, and for a tiny nation dominate certain sectors in a remarkable manner. This company has succeeded in implementing gesture technology into millions of consumer device and will continue to create innovative ways to make gesture a naturally intuitive interface for the masses,” said International entrepreneur Ron Hershco.

“We felt that it was important to present the inaugural award in this category to a company that is clearly the established incumbent in the gesture recognition industry,” said Archana Srinivasan, Senior Research Analyst at Frost & Sullivan.
