DAI was formed by a joint venture between Silicon Valley's Dual Aperture, Inc. ('DA') and the Center for Integrated Smart Sensors ('CISS'), Korea's leading-edge research institute affiliated with Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology. DA was founded by Dr. David D. Lee who was inducted into CEA Hall of Fame in 2014 for his contribution in leading the HDMI standardization. CISS was established as a Global Frontier Project Agency under the Ministry of Science, ICT and Future Planning in 2011, to research and develop the next-generation smart sensors. The Ministry grants CISS headed by Prof. Chong-Min Kyung ten million dollars a year for 9 years to lead the Global Frontier R&D to develop the smart IT convergence technology beyond the existing paradigm of IT technology. With its proprietary dual-aperture RGB-IR sensor technology and algorithms, DAI utilizes 3D image capturing and other imaging enhancements to create a multi-functional, low cost smart sensor technology that can be integrated into many consumer, automotive, and industrial products. DAI's unique depth and gesture tracking will also empower mobile camera-based applications to explore new dimensions of user experience
