Privately-held Nethra Imaging is focused on digital video and imaging technology, and is widely recognized for delivering solutions for consumer and industrial imaging and video devices. Highlighting Nethra's growth strategies, Ramesh Singh, President and co-founder says, "After making a mark in multiple imaging markets, we are moving towards the high-end consumer market where advanced video processing is the key need."

This California based company has successfully placed itself among the top five companies in this area and despite poor overall market conditions it claims to be financially well positioned to bide through this challenging period. Co-founded by Ramesh Singh in 2003, Nethra emerged to cater to the growing expectations of customers in the imaging industry, as they went through the transition from analog to digital technology while maintaining quality and ease of use for the consumer.

Nethra used proprietary algorithms to build flexible, fully programmable processor chips that deliver high-quality still and video images under various lighting condition as part of its strategy to deliver outstanding value to its customers. In addition, instead of being dependent on venture firms or other outside financiers, Nethra has built a profitable business model that leverages joint product development with leading OEMs.

Looking ahead, Nethra sees strong growth in the broadcast and industrial spaces that it plans to exploit using the resources of its highly experienced imaging, video and silicon development professionals. The leadership position that Nethra has achieved in the high-performance imaging space in an extremely challenging 2008 market has resulted in the continued support of the company's original investors - Artiman Ventures, GunnAllen Financial, iLabs Capital and Quicksilver Ventures.
