Technology
More than 80% of all human interactions depend on vision, things like driving a car or watching over any process. Epilog's breakthrough digital vision technology can competently manage any visual task, allowing people to focus on more important things instead. Epilog's unique Artificial Intelligence (AI) 8K technology has multiple patents granted and has an estimated 10 year lead over the competition. Currently we are accepting orders on two products in the automotive and transportation sectors planned for production later this year.

“Artificial Human Vision Technology” 

Our Story


“Vision is The Art of Seeing What is Invisible to Others”

- Jonathan Swift

Human eyes are extraordinary in their ability to resolve small details - our vision exceeds an IMAX theater in quality. Vision systems commonly sold in commercial products today have about 2% of the acuity our eyes have. The economics of diminishing returns make building higher quality systems prohibitively more expensive.


Through extensive innovation, Epilog has developed a human-level AI vision system cost-effective for commercial use.  We call this “an IMAX in your pocket”, it has a cost-performance improvement of about 100x over ordinary systems.  It is also protected by 8 patents and made affordable with the advent of fast AI chips and a $100M precision robotic system that can assemble our product in minutes (Jabil)

The Problem


Current vision systems miss details

We live in a complex world and take for granted our seamless ability to process thousands of objects around us of all sizes and shapes in wide-open spaces like highways, parking lots, warehouses, etc.  Current vision systems are limited to large objects within restricted fields of view, for example, people in a corridor or cars nearby on the road ahead. Covering larger spaces or detecting smaller objects is far too expensive and complex using existing technology.

*This image is computer generated to provide an example of current machine vision systems detection capabilities.

The leading competing solution--patching dozens of ordinary cameras and mixing immature technologies --such as Lidar--  we believe results in systems that are too costly, bulky, complex and unreliable for mass markets.

The Solution


Disruptive AI tech is poised to solve real-world problems 

Over the past five years, Epilog has developed and is now selling a disruptive new vision technology specifically designed to recognize intricate details in large spaces like roads, parking lots, airports, train stations, etc.  We believe our products have 100x better cost-performance than anything else on the market today and we have 8 patents on the technology. The breakthrough cost savings come from Epilog unique sensor technology, leveraging billions in industry investments to accelerate AI and a partnership with Jabil to mass-produce the product using a $100M precision optical robotic manufacturing process.  We are now in a position to offer an industrial-grade vision device cost-effective for commercial use.

In 2017, Epilog completed the world’s first 12K AI camera prototype - the same quality as an IMAX theater. We rapidly transitioned this technology to two closely related products that serve massive emerging markets. The first product retrofits standard camera installations with our 8K AI vision to help manage the flow of vehicles and pedestrians at transportation hubs, parking lots and other similar large spaces. The second product is a driver assistance system that can be added into millions of existing cars to make them self-driving.

The Market


Epilog has scalable products for two massive markets

  • The immediate market for Epilog technology is driver assistance and retrofitting ~50 million cars on the road today, as well as those designed for 2023 and later (source).

  • The second market is traffic queue management in large spaces like airports, terminals, industrial and government buildings; tens of millions of currently installed cameras are in need of retrofitting and other sites require new cameras (source)

  • Installation of Epilog technology is effortless, as the quality and simplicity of our design reduce cost and effort by 10 times or more (source).

Our Traction


Collaboration with major players and products that work!

We already have a number of patents and more pending and we have created a production-ready model in partnership with one of the world’s largest contract manufacturers Jabil Optics and in collaboration with several large OEM automotive manufacturers.   With 8 patents approved and 1 more pending we are looking to bring our proprietary, Affordable tech to even more industries.

What We Do


World’s first commercial 8K vision system 

We believe Epilog has created the best and lowest cost high-resolution artificial intelligence vision technology available in the world. Building off of years of trailblazing research and innovation, Epilog has developed two distinct products:

Luma | The world’s first low-cost production 8K AI Camera


Using DSLR-quality optics to cover huge areas with great precision and onboard AI, Luma is ready to change the game.  The production version of Luma will compete favorably on price with the competition (approximately $10K-$50K price range) and include built-in AI processing with the image quality to replace as many as ten standard cameras.  Reducing camera count improves aesthetics, reduces maintenance costs and of course the overall system performance.

Sherpa | Bringing drive automation to existing cars


We also developed Sherpa, offering cutting-edge AI and optical capabilities in a small, windshield-mounted device that taps into your car’s computer in order to take control of gas, steering and brake, serving as a driver-assisting device. We are accepting Sherpa reservations at $995 (pricing subject to change), which is substantially cheaper than buying a self-driving car (approximately $50K-$100K) or the estimated $3K-$5K option price (e.g. in Tesla Models).

The Business Model


Two products bringing the future to you affordably

Epilog is accepting reservations on the entry level Sherpa at $995 (pricing subject to change).  The Luma evaluation system is available for purchase now at $4,995 with production versions planned at $2,495 (for the full AI version) and $995 (for an entry level AI device), all pricing may be subject to change. We have lead customers engaged in the transportation sector (airports, train stations, metro areas) to deploy Luma in queue management trials.  Epilog’s fast-to-market entry strategy will initially offer direct-to-customer sales over online channels while distribution channels are being setup. An optional online subscription packages (estimated $5 per stream) will offer customers more features and insight into their device.

We believe we will make ~60% gross margin on full-price hardware and a ~50% margin on subscription offerings. Epilog will recruit a base of installers who will offer a bundled product and installation service. Our production partner Jabil is capable of manufacturing up to an estimated 15,000 units a day and will support OEM partnerships.

How We Are Different


Leaving our competitors in the (over-priced) dust

Epilog estimates a 10 year lead on the competition. With 8 patents granted and a dozen more pending, our technology is far more advanced than that of our competitors, and our prices are a fraction of those of other companies. No other company comes close to truly comparing in either the fixed or mobile markets.

The main competitor currently offering a professional-grade 8K camera is Red.com at the $25K-$75K price point, AI not included.  Consumer 8K cameras from Sony, Panasonic, etc. are some years off and will not be automotive/industrial grade.  Other after-market solutions for self-driving are HD quality (6% of Epilog resolution) and unreliable. Traffic monitoring cameras with 8K resolution  cost $10K or more based on old Digital Still Camera (DSC) technology and no built-in AI capability.


The Vision


Be the brand leader in fixed and mobile AI Cameras

Having the head start in AI high-definition cameras that we do, we plan to become the leading company in both fixed and mobile 8K AI cameras. Research and innovation has driven our company to this point, and we will continue to grow as a team and a brand as we lead the industry forward.

*This video contains interviews with Scott Nisbet who is an independent consultant for Epilog Imaging Systems, Inc.

We will lead the market in two main areas: automotive and queue management. We expect the bulk of our cash-flow to come from these areas, and will be supplemented by revenue from our software services. 

Our Team


We bring expertise from elite universities and leading companies

The Epilog team has extensive experience delivering and supporting millions of units of devices and software to business and consumers. Our management has experience leading startups from garage operations to successful exits, including one public offering. Our team has formal scientific training in Physics and computer vision working at prestigious institutions like CalTech, Cornell University and CERN.

Why Invest


Production-ready product, a fair price and billions of market space

Epilog has world premier technology for high-resolution AI cameras (8K+) with an estimated decade technology lead over the competition, 8 patents granted to date and more pending. We have fully developed two major AI products ready for production-- each addressing immediate Billion-dollar markets. We are poised to dominate the market for both automobile and big-spaces high-resolution AI cameras, and we are led by some of the most brilliant minds in the AI camera world.

Epilog AI Covid-19 Advisory Statement

15 days ago

Overall, management see minimal impact from the Covid-19 virus on Epilog business in 2020 and some foreseeable upsides.


Most people are aware that the San Francisco Bay Area is under a shelter-in-place advisory.

Our team members are in compliance and had previously taken all precautions to stay healthy.

The bulk of our activities this year involve engineering, simulation and software that will not be impacted.

We anticipate minimal impacts from the turmoil in the stock market to our business activities as well.

Epilog’s shares are not trading. Also, we are not exposed to accounts payable risk from a large customer base.

We don’t have supplier concerns. Jabil’s factories in China have already resumed full capacity.


Having navigated the 2008 storm at the helm of a public company, my view is that Epilog is in a favorable position.

We fully anticipated an auto industry recession in 2020 with the significant downturn in Germany last year.

Sherpa was specifically developed to rely on existing and future cars (MY23+) instead of ongoing car sales.


We might also see a boost in our secondary (queue management) business with more government spending this year.

You can see below an AI thermal camera concept we are considering jointly developing with one of our partners.

This unique 8K AI device would install in hours and be able to instantly flag persons with raised body temperatures in a crowd.
