Hyperspectral imaging (HSI) unleashes the power of light, allowing us to look beyond green, red and blue, and capture information about chemical components of an object.
Founded in 2016, Unispectral is a pioneer in hyperspectral imaging for mobile. The Unispectral platform allows untrained users to capture megapixel images that also include hyperspectral data of every object in the picture. This powerful combination of standard object recognition, image processing and deep learning tools together with spectral analysis, allows cameras to automatically identify objects and determine their chemical composition from a distance.
Mr. Coby Sella has an impressive track record with more than 20 years of experiences in business ramp-up and repositioning in the hi-tech sector. Mr. Sella has held numerous senior positions in the development and management of application processors and in the commercialization of technology for the consumer electronics industry. As CEO of Sansa Security (formerly Discretix) he managed the successful acquisition by ARM IoT BU OR Arm Holdings in 2015 where he served as site manager and VP Products and Technology and met the post-acquisition revenue goals. Prior to the acquisition, he led the restructuring of Sansa Security, achieving profitability by doubling revenues to over $20 million. When Mr. Sella was Senior VP and General Manager of Zoran’s mobile division from 1998-2009, he addressed the digital camera and mobile handset markets. Under his leadership, the digital camera business grew its market share to over 30 percent. Prior to joining Zoran, Mr. Sella held various positions at the DSP Group, IBM and National Semiconductor. He holds a Bachelor of Science degree in Electrical Engineering from the Technion, the Israel Institute of Technology.
Ariel Raz co-founded Unispectral and currently leads the Research and Development efforts. From 2012 to 2013, Raz served as a project manager and then product manager in a homeland security startup. Prior to that, he served in an elite R&D unit within the government of Israel. He has managed a cross-functional team of several dozen engineers across three R&D centers, and successfully managed the relationship between operational and intelligence divisions. Raz holds five patents, and his M.Sc. research in the field of computational cameras resulted in a breakthrough that led to the formation of Unispectral. Raz earned a B.Sc. in Materials Engineering and a B.A. in Physics from the Technion, Israel Institute of Technology as well as an M.Sc. in Physics from Tel Aviv University.
Prof. David Mendlovic holds B.Sc. and Ph.D. degrees in Electrical Engineering from Tel Aviv University followed by a MINERVA post-doc fellowship. He is currently a Tel Aviv University full professor of electro-optics. He has authored more than 200 technical articles and 3 book chapters and is the holder of more than 40 patents, all of which have been commercialized. Prof. Mendlovic is the 1998 winner of the ICO (International Commission of Optics) Award. During the past decade, he led various commercial and business development activities. Two of his patents became worldwide technology standards (fibers for medical internal operations and long range barcode scanners commercialized by Symbol Technologies). He is a founder of successful opto-electronics startup companies, including Civcom and Eyesquad, and served as their CEO. After Eyesquad was acquired by Tessera, he became the General Manager of Tessera Israel and later the General Manager of Tessera’s Image Enhancement Division. Prof. Mendlovic also served a term as the Chief Scientist of the Israeli Ministry of Science.
Mr. Tzach Hadas has vast experience in MEMS, systems on a chip (SoC) and operations. Prior to joining Unispectral, Mr. Hadas served as CEO of Mantis Vision, focused on defining and executing the company’s strategy. Prior to that he served as COO of PrimeSense (inventors of Microsoft Kinect, acquired by Apple) where in addition to operations he led the company’s IC tools and technology selection.
Prior to joining PrimeSense, Mr. Hadas served as Vice President of Operations for Zoran Corporation where he managed worldwide operations, in charge of shipping hundreds of millions of IC products and overseeing an annual purchasing budget in excess of $200M. In parallel to his operational duties, Mr. Hadas served as General Manager of Zoran Microelectronics, Zoran’s subsidiary in Israel.
Mr. Hadas holds an M.Sc. in Electrical and Electronics Engineering from Tel-Aviv University, and a B.A. in Physics from the Technion, Israel Institute of Technology.
