Explorer Co., Ltd.

We are engaged in design and development as well as consignment manufacturing by making use of our advanced image processing know-how.

We are engaged in design and development as well as consignment manufacturing of a wide range of products covering from hardware, software, and built-in substrates to completed-level articles. Our products are used for broadcast equipment, medical equipment, various kinds of manufacturing equipment, and video and audio equipment. Our company started with consignment design services, and we are strong in video and audio processing based on our accumulated technology. We developed the world’s first HD IP transmission equipment that actively controls the transfer rate according to the circuit congestion state. Our original IP video transmission (codec) equipment is widely utilized by domestic broadcasting stations in Japan, including NHK.

[Company strength]
We possess globally top-level know-how on video processing technology. We developed an in-house product that features the world’s first HD IP transmission equipment for actively controlling the transfer rate (automatic rate control) according to the circuit congestion state. We conduct in-house design and manufacturing without using dedicated chips. We continue to take on the challenge of creating high-value-added articles and globally unique articles. For the past two years we have been developing H.265/HEVC codec equipment and 4K/8K equipment under a subsidy from the national organization NEDO. We have a track record in supplying a noise removal system for medical treatment equipment that can provide clear picture quality with low radiation exposure in an X-ray TV device. We have also marketed a three-dimensional image reconstruction system in the field of CT and MRI.

Video transmission equipment manufacturing

[Strength of products/technologies]
A certain degree of image quality degradation will occur in video transmission by broadcasting stations, but even so it is definitely necessary to prevent image freezing or breakup. The transfer rate is automatically reduced when the packet error rate of a circuit increases, and the transfer rate is increased when the packet error rate decreases. The strength of our technology and products is that these operations can be carried out on an automatic basis in connection with the encoder and decoder, without requiring manual operation.

[Representative's message]
We have recently been eyeing the possibility of expanding the overseas sales of our in-house products. We plan to release our codec equipment in the Korean market through our Korean partner enterprise. We also aim to build market channels and cultivate markets for our original products in Southeast Asia, Europe, Latin America, and so on, through our local partner enterprises.

[Company structure for market development/overseas expansion]
We have assigned staff members in the general affairs department and sales department who can provide support in English. Staff members in the sales department have had experience in overseas assignments or working in global enterprises.
