Seattle, WA – December, 2009. Synapse has announced that they were the Industrial Design and Mechanical Engineering Design partner for Cernium Corporation’s new Archerfish Solo™ interactive video monitoring solution, an International CES 2010 Innovations Design and Engineering award honoree.Synapse was responsible for industrial design and mechanical engineering through New Product Introduction (NPI) to the eventual transition to Cernium’s Contract Manufacturing partner.

“We were pleased to collaborate with a partner organization that shared the same commitment towards product design and engineering excellence,” said Nik Gagvani, Ph.D., Cernium’s Chief Technology Officer & Vice President of Engineering. “Together with Synapse, we were able to introduce yet another award-winning video-based product to the Consumer Electronics market. The Synapse team worked as an extension of our team, enabling us to rapidly bring Archerfish Solo to market.”

Archerfish Solo, the first Thinking Camera™ for consumers, delivers advanced homeland security technology in a single, compact, wireless device that combines both a video camera and a recorder. Unlike video monitoring systems that require users to expend hours viewing live video or motion-triggered alerts, Archerfish Solo is smart enough to distinguish and send visual alerts only when user-defined events occur, saving time and providing more control.
