Below is our recent interview with Josh Cryer, President, COO at Reticulate Micro:
Q: Could you provide our readers with a brief introduction to your company?
A: Reticulate Micro (RM) is technology company with broad commercial applicability. Our mission is to create and curate communications technology and systems management platforms based on proprietary VASTTM technology that addresses the issues of limited data transports, deep fakes, and network fragility. We securely deliver Ultra-High Definition (UHD) video at low latency with maximum compression. VASTTM is explicitly designed for streaming any video at the highest possible resolution in bandwidth-constrained environments while reducing required technical resources. Our VISION OSTM platform empowers developers to easily integrate VASTTM and readily build decentralized, secure, and interoperable applications. Our platform provides an easy-to-use SDK that includes a wide range of APIs, libraries, and toolkits.
Reticulate Micro understands the needs of our customers. Video compression and encryption technologies are crucial components of defense tech security systems. As video data becomes increasingly important for defense applications like intelligence, surveillance, reconnaissance, and tactical decision-making, the need for efficient, secure transmission and storage is more important than ever. Our unique advancements in video compression and encryption technologies are tailored for defense tech security, with an emphasis on maintaining high-quality video data while ensuring maximum data security.
Q: Any highlights on your recent announcement?
A: This intellectual property acquisition is very strategic, providing RM with an organic video compression technology that encodes video at extremely low latency and with maximum compression. These features are especially important for warfighters and peacekeepers that rely on the timely transmission of video to support military and rescue operations. We previously relied on exclusive sub-licensing of a comparable technology that is similarly impressive, so we are pleased to have this capability fully owned and managed in house.
Q: Can you give us more insights into your offering?
A: We have to primary offerings. First, is our Video Assured Secure Transmission VASTTM compression platform that employs a completely unique modified I-Frame and discrete wavelet transform (DWT) methodology, novel pre-synchronized filtering methodologies, and a proprietary probability algorithm.
Our unique encoding, decoding, compression, and decompression methodology is augmented with the latest advancements in distributed-ledger and hardware-profiled security technologies to create a quantum resistant encryption capability.
The VISON OS platform is a custom front end of the Matrix platform that adds key situational awareness technologies such as geolocation, live beacon, mapping, video ingest, and sensor integrations. The platform empowers developers to readily build decentralized, secure, and interoperable applications that can communicate with other Matrix-based applications seamlessly. Our platform provides an easy-to-use SDK that includes a wide range of APIs, libraries, and toolkits, enabling developers to get started quickly and easily. The platform normalizes and intuitively displays information that is most important for customers, supporting appliance management, data fusion, data aggregation, systems common operating picture, and systems orchestration needs.
Q: What can we expect from your company in next 6 months? What are your plans?
A: While most of our plans for the next 6 months are sensitive, I can say that we are excited about an upcoming soft launch of our VASTTM excited appliance encoder designed to deliver High Definition (HD) video over any IP transport connection, suitable for both military and civil needs.
Q: What is the best thing about your company that people might not know about?
A: More important than merely delivering disruptive communications technologies for defense and civil markets, we are a firm comprised of a world class team of experts that is hyper-focused on the needs of our customers. We listen to what they need and then execute accordingly. Our business policies and culture expressively forbid shilling existing technologies that are sitting on the shelf, developed without customer input, and pumped for the sake of merely maintaining margins – a business approach of many firms that have lost touch with their base. We proudly develop and deliver high value, customer-relevant, and resilient technologies that can be relied upon in the most critical moments. Our aim is to instill in our customers the deepest confidence in our products, so that when they see a Reticulate Logo they know, “…it just works.”
