Solution

Socket connection and the Protobuf structured data transfer protocol

Client Testimonial

  • ..highly professional work!
  • Ilya Kottel

    VP R&D at HumanEyes

  • I want to say thank you for the excellent, highly professional work, for your passion, and your time even on holidays and weekends. Your attitude ultimately led to outstanding results. And now we have a camera, which has no analogs yet. This camera is the only camera that shoots 180 and 360 degrees in resolution 5.7. Of course, it has shortcomings, but it is possible and necessary to work with. You have done the main work perfectly. The application for the camera, which you created in such a short time, turned out to be very functional and cool.

  • I think we have something to be proud of. I think we were a great team. I had a different experience. And even when my boss told me: “Come on, outsource!”, I answered him: “NO, PLEASE, I DO NOT NEED OUTSOURCE.” And here you are changed my world view radically. So keep it up. Continue to be such positive, productive, great guys that are easy and fun to work with. And continue with your excellent results.
