Live from DEMOfall: Tribeca Labs bring interesting twist to photo space

Blogged Live from DEMOfall by Alex

Tribeca Labs launched
an interesting photo service at DEMO, focused on helping you preserve your digital photos. Their
application continuously crawls your hard drive and when it finds a photo it does a few
interesting things. Firstly by using adaptive imaging, Photobot automatically improves the
quality of the photo. Without any user involvement, the Photobot reduces red eye,
improves contrast and gives pictures vibrant, live-like color. As the company puts it: “it
makes bad photos good and good photos even better.”

Then the software does something unexpected and very interesting – it
archives a copy of the photograph to a remote vault located in, literally, a bank in
Switzerland. Called ‘Swiss picture bank’, this super secure storage is located next to
famous Swiss currency vaults. All pictures are easily accessible online via a nice and
simple web site. The company’s message: “Preserve your memories for generations”. This is
surely an interesting twist and a valuable add on to the growing number of photo
applications and services.
