CybeRecord Appoints Kimball as Vice President of Research and Development.
CybeRecord, Inc. (Nasdaq:CYRD) announced today that it has appointed Glenn Kimball as vice president of research and development.
Mr. Kimball continues in the position he held for the past three years with CybeRecord Group, prior to the firm's acquisition on June 9 of this year.
"Glenn has the ingenious mind and engineering expertise needed to perfect the innovative image enhancement products required to take CybeRecord to the next level and become a leader in the fast-growing imaging market," said James Lucas, CybeRecord's president and chief executive officer. "We are fortunate to have Glenn on our management team. His rich set of engineering skills and unique wealth of experience in developing imaging products are specifically related to CybeRecord's goals."
Mr. Kimball has more than 20 years of experience in imaging product development, primarily for large government organizations, and is a noted lecturer and author in the field of digital imaging. As vice president of Areva International, a San Francisco-based consulting firm under contract to the Federal Reserve Bank, he designed a series of test documents that have become an industry standard in proving performance of high-speed check reader-sorters. He also developed image processing techniques to separate and enhance poor-quality, overlapping bank endorsements and, thereby, track checks back to the bank of first deposit.
As a project engineer for TRW, Kimball managed development and production of seven multimillion-dollar topographic map compilation systems for the United States Defense Mapping Agency. The systems performed at micron accuracy.
"In the past decade, we have witnessed rapid development of technologies to distribute information electronically to home and business," said Kimball. "Next, we will see emphasis shift to obtaining, packaging, and delivering information content. The watchword is content, because delivery technology is advantageous only when content is in a usable form.
"I see a potential parallel between CybeRecord and Adobe Systems. Two decades ago, Adobe entered the desktop publishing arena with a standard by which all systems could speak the same language, the PostScript page description language, which became the recognized industry standard. CybeRecord is developing analogous tools to facilitate capture, preparation, and distribution of information content electronically. The company's software enhances paper and microfilm records when converted to digital documents, enabling knowledge workers and consumers to share this information electronically over the Internet and within company intranet connections," Kimball added.
CybeRecord, based in Bellevue, Wash., is developing the next generation of digital document image enhancement software for the knowledge management market, which encompasses innumerable large institutions in both the government sector and private enterprise.
