LTU engine: comprehensive image recognition platform

With the most advanced image recognition algorithms. Licensed software or hosted service (SaaS).


LTU engine is used to:

Search for exact or edited images, images with shared similarities, visually similar images based on colors & shapes. Extract and search color palette from image or set of images, create dynamic palettes based on color set, find subtle differences between matched images.

Scalable platform capable of handling millions of images in record time

Years of research and integration with large complex systems containing infinite number of images sets LTU technologies apart. Capable of indexing and searching millions of images in mere seconds, LTU engine is the most robust, versatile and stable image recognition platform on the market.

Tools for easy integration and management

The LTU engine API is highly adaptable and compatible with most data structures – integration is possible with any API enabled software via HTTP and JSON.

LTU engine offers lightweight libraries, scalable servers and multiple SDKs including java, PHP, python, perl, C++, C#.

Admin user interface

The LTU engine user interface makes it easy to setup, manage the image database and monitor the performance of the system. The UI includes image upload, image browser, usage analytics and much more.

ON premise or ON demand

LTU engine is available as licensed ON premise software or as an ON demand platform (SaaS), providing you with a choice depending on the complexity of your system, image volume and expected search activity. Since both options share very similar API it is very easy to switch between the two. For example, a company may opt to start with LTU engine/ON demand and as the system grows (database and query volume) move to an on premise license.

LTU engine/ON premise

  • Licensed software
  • Setup/architecture/platform managed within client system
  • Best for complex systems and large image databases

LTU engine/ON demand

  • Minimum upfront investment, pay per query pricing
  • Hosted and managed by LTU technologies
  • Optimal for organizations with limited IT infrastructure and budget

Single platform, multiple uses

LTU engine offers configuration options to optimize functionality to your requirements and additional tools designed for specific markets and use cases. Each type of image recognition functionality may require specific features and configurations to optimize performance for different applications.

LTU technologies’ algorithms have been developed with this in mind and offers tools and setting designed specifically for solutions for visual content tracking , mobile visual search, online visual search and investigations.
