LTU Debuts pixlinQ at Mobile World Congress 2011

Company Brings Must-Have Mobile Visual Search Technology to the Mainstream

NEW YORK, NY and PARIS and BARCELONA, SPAIN--(Marketwire - February 14, 2011) - Bringing mobile marketing to a new level, LTU technologies today announced the launch of pixlinQ, the mobile visual search feature for any mobile application or campaign.

Powered by LTU's proven image recognition technology, pixlinQ helps organizations link real-world, printed material to digital content using a mobile device. With pixlinQ, there is no need to include a QR code for recognition. It works from a simple snapshot of a print ad, catalog, poster, or product packaging, pixlinQ sends related information to users on their mobile devices -- delivering a more compelling mobile experience. As something new, pixlinQ includes an extremely easy mobile app-builder, a content and analytics platform, visual search database API, Android and iPhone SDKs and a mobile email solution.

pixlinQ will be featured at the 2011 Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, Spain Feb 14-17 with demos on Feb 16 and 17 -- Hall: 2.0, Stand 2E47.

No app yet? No problem! Featuring a wide range of integration options, pixlinQ makes it easy and seamless to incorporate the functionality into mobile programs -- even for those that do not already have mobile apps.

pixlinQ offers an extremely simple app-builder that lets organizations with no development resources build branded mobile visual search iPhone and Android apps with the pixlinQ functionality, in just a few steps, at a fraction of the cost of outsourcing development.

pixlinQ also offers a mobile e-mail feature that lets users access the functionality by sending images by email, making pixlinQ available to not-so-smart phones too.

2011 is the year for mobile visual search
"We know that the next great wave in mobile applications is to make them more dynamic and compelling with visual search and image recognition," said Alex Winter, founder and CEO of LTU technologies. "With pixlinQ, we're committed to helping the market achieve this quickly and easily by offering options that fit any organization regardless of size, budget and technical resources."

pixlinQ is designed to be affordable for organizations of all sizes. With different levels of integration, there is an option for any budget. The cost of pixlinQ includes a low setup fee, a monthly fixed fee and per query monthly costs that scale according to volume.
