Quantum Leap announces FaceGuard™ , the “ new hope ” in balancing Security vs Privacy for 100% GDPR compliant Video-Surveillance Systems

Quantum Leap​ (QL), a cutting edge Portuguese technology startup, today announced ​FaceGuard™​, its new patent-pending solution for video-surveillance systems.

“Security and Privacy are two concepts that have never found their common ground regarding video-surveillance based systems and solutions, until now,” said Ricardo Lopes, chief executive officer of QL. “We are excited to announce that we are bringing to the market a new generation, and the first of its kind, of video-surveillance technologies, that will enable for the first time, true data-subject (all of us) privacy while keeping all the security and safety functionality that are the reason why such systems exist in the first place,” he continued.

QL is creating the next-generation video-surveillance products and services by combining its broad in-house technology expertise with that of its partners. The company is known to be first and foremost a “solutions company” to some of the most challenging problems that both people and businesses face today. QL has affiliations with academia as well as with industry and soon with government authorities too.

FaceGuard™​, both a trademark and a patent pending technology, is being announced as “​the new hope”​ by bringing for the first time the right balance between security, safety and data privacy, into the world of video-surveillance systems. It will be doing so via a stack of 4 new computer vision technology layers that operate in tandem, providing full on-demand selective data subject (de)anonymization features,device-display anonymization, behavioral analytics (via gait biometrics), and general weapons’ detection, all that while keeping the whole system 100% GDPR compliant.

The technology stack also includes an innovative custom DLT (“blockchain”) infrastructure for total system anti-tampering, indisputability and immutability, as well as a parallel GDPR DSAR data bus self-service feature to greatly simplify and streamline DSAR events for both data controllers and data subjects.

The solution is in advanced R&D stage but set to hit the market in Q4 2021 with the launch of a FaceGuard™​ NVR series (FG-NVR), compatible with any IP camera, and later on in 2022 a new breed of next gen FaceGuard™​ IP cameras that will natively work along the FG-NVR enhancing its already powerful on-device Ai features.

Quantum Leap announces Sonoplast™ , a New Disruptive Music Platform for Sync and Commercial Spaces

Quantum Leap (QL), a cutting edge Portuguese technology startup, today confirmed the announcement at this year’s Web Summit of Sonoplast™ , its new music platform for synchronization and commercial spaces.

“I’ve always had my heart in the creative industries, with a special focus in the audio and music ones. I’ve always wanted to put technology at the service of said industries, and we felt there was a gap in the market for a new music service that could serve both the videographers and youtubers (synchronization) space, but at the same time the needs of general commercial spaces that enhance their customer experience journey with background music, all at a much higher quality over quantity ratio and lower price point than the current competition” said Ricardo Lopes, chief executive officer of QL.

With this offering, QL is creating a new music streaming and download platform, that is based on high quality music and sounds fx that are 100% proprietary aka “white-label”, and as such besides being royalty-free in the sync use-case, are also on the other hand free from any other fees to 3rd party authors, composers, performers’ rights societies, bringing massive savings for its clients.

The Sonoplast™ platform fuses both the software engineering and AV production teams at QL, resulting in a state of the art solution using the latest technology cores in a solution in its category. From the best backend audio storage and streaming infrastructure, application development, to the worlds’ best music production software, hardware and raw artist talent, the result is the absolute best music quality and user experience ever putting it in a league of its own.

The technology stack also includes an innovative and proprietary audio watermarking technology developed from the ground up to protect all the content from being abused or misused.

With a single low cost monthly or annual fee, both sync and commercial space clients have unlimited access to the full (+2000 and counting everyday) high quality music and sound fx library, that cover every known (and unknown) genre or mood needed.

The solution is in an advanced R&D stage but set for general availability in Q2 2021 with selected videographers, youtubers and retail chains beta-testing the platform already in Q1 2021.

Quantum Leap announces AquaSpot® and EcoHero™ the Most Advanced Industrial Water Dispenser Ecosystem in The World

Quantum Leap (QL), a cutting edge Portuguese technology startup, today confirmed the announcement at this year’s Web Summit of its patent pending technology solution, AquaSpot® and EcoHero™ , the most advanced industrial water dispenser ecosystem in the world.

“We have been following the progress of the water dispenser industry up closely, especially in the last 3 years, and although we’ve seen some great ideas and technologies develop, we haven’t seen any that would unify in a consistent and meaningful way, the technology innovation, economic advantages, and above all, climate-change friendly features, in an unique concept and its implementation,” said Ricardo Lopes, chief executive officer of QL.

“We are incredibly excited to announce that we are bringing to the market a first-of its-kind, complete end-to-end circular economy enabler, eco-friendly, industrial smart water-dispenser concept”, he continued. “It is based on next generation water filtering, sterilization and remineralization technologies, full IoT telemetry implementation for complete remote deployment management and predictive maintenance, big full colour touch-display for immersive user interface experience, and also the latest post-mix dispensing technology for on-demand user “made-to-taste” water design on-the-fly. It’s really completely nuts and insane the amount of technology we are putting in these machines” he added.


“All this tied into a deep gamification process via data interchange between the systems’ app (that we call “EcoHero tm “) and the dispensers, so that the end user will get rewarded each time he uses these machines to refill his bottle with a reusable one, hence helping to reduce the use of plastic” he concluded.

As all that wasn’t enough, the AquaSpot tm also features a built-in innovative bottle retrieving mechanism, so they can be recycled and of course, the user gets extra bonus gamification points for it. But the innovation craze doesn’t stop there, as the QL team is on fire, partnering up with one of the countries top universities and world’s top materials’ engineering R&D centers to develop two totally new and also first-of-its-kind additional technologies:

1. A 100% eco-friendly smart-tag that will be used to automatically track all the first generation bottles used in the AquaSpot tm ecosystem.
2. A 100% compostable and recyclable packaging material that will first serve for the next generation of the AquaSpot tm proprietary eco-friendly bottles and later on beyond into the whole packaging industry. This will complete the full circular-economy feature of the project. The technology stack of the whole AquaSpot tm ecosystem also includes a full API for integration in any 3rd party information system such as ERP, CRM, POS etc. The solution is already at proof-of-concept/working prototype stage and is set to hit the market by the end of Q2 2021 with already big multinational players in the big retail industry evaluating the solution.

Quantum Leap announces it has begun both ISO 9001 and ISO 27001 Certifications

Quantum Leap (QL), a cutting edge Portuguese technology startup, today confirmed the announcement at this year’s Web Summit it has begun integrated ISO9001 and ISO27001 certification.

“Although we are still, technically, what you would call a start-up company, we have been experiencing fast growth and working almost from day one with major multinational clients and partners, towards bigger and bigger IT and IoT solutions, that bring us greater and greater responsibilities too. Having said that, we quickly realized that the time (and money) investment in these two major certifications would be,much more than just a couple of cool stickers to add to our company e-signatures and stationary, a crucial instrument towards better quality, efficiency, security and overall trustworthiness of all our products, services, work methods and ultimately to better serve our clients and markets, and earn their most precious asset for us: their loyalty,” said Ricardo Lopes, chief executive officer of QL.

Quantum Leap seeks to co-create next-generation products and services by combining its broad in-house science and technology expertise with that of its partners. The company is known to be first and foremost a “solutions company” to some of the most challenging problems that both people and businesses face today. QL has affiliations with academia as well as with industry and soon with government authorities too.

ISO 9001 is defined as the international standard that specifies requirements for a quality management system (QMS). Organizations use the standard to demonstrate the ability to consistently provide products and services that meet customer and regulatory requirements.

ISO 27001 is an international standard on how to manage information security. Not only does the standard provide companies with the necessary know-how for protecting their most valuable information, but a company who gets certified against ISO 27001 can in this way, prove to its customers and partners that it safeguards their data. Because it is an international standard, ISO 27001 is easily recognized all around the world, increasing business opportunities for organizations and professionals.

Quantum Leap is paving its way without cutting any corners regarding compliance and legal requirements in all its activity fronts and beyond, as it is also one of the pioneers into full GDPR best practices since way before regulation was put first into effect on May 25, 2018. Its ISO 9001/27001 integrated certification is expected to be completed by Q2 2021.

Quantum Leap announces AquaPal® , the Most Advanced Low-Cost Water Dispenser in The World

Quantum Leap (QL), a cutting edge Portuguese technology startup, today confirmed the announcement at this year’s Web Summit of its AquaPal® , the most advanced low-cost water dispenser in the world.


“The market is flooded with cheap and very low quality products in this segment of the bottled water industry, namely dispensing devices, and we think that, if water is the most precious thing we have on our planet, and it is the key for life, why on earth would we treat it with such low standards when it comes to the tools we use to serve it?” said Ricardo Lopes, chief executive officer of QL. “We are excited to announce that we are bringing to the market a first-of its-kind, “smart water-dispenser”, he continued. “It is an app-free (although it can have a companion app), ultra-compact, full-colour touch display enabled, low-cost yet, high quality device that brings for the first time a set of features never before seen in its category” he added.

Due to its low price, AquaPal® is a totally revolutionary high-quality water-dispenser for the masses, leveraging the power of IoT and embedded systems along with edge Ai, to enable a whole new level of convenience for both bottled water consumers and providers, by creating a new order-from-home + home-delivery ecosystem.

Quantum Leap develops “myMonchique”, a Unique App for the B2C Water Industry

Quantum Leap (QL), a cutting edge Portuguese technology startup, today announced it was the developer behind the most recent mobile App for the B2C water industry business.

Called “myMonchique” the App was specially developed for the client “Água de Monchique” who is also a business partner in some of QL’s other projects related to the water industry and one of the leading brands in Portugal in that industry’s B2C segment.

“We saw an opportunity to show off our mobile development skills, by taking this project with this client, as it involved quite a complex app workflow and features, but yet the challenge was to still keep it as simple as possible from an UX/UI point of view.” said Ricardo Lopes, chief executive officer of QL. “Although quite comprehensive at v1.0 we have laid out an extensive future roadmap for the app, with a lot of really exciting features to come on a regular basis in the following months, so stay tuned for more,” he added.

The “myMonchique” app, leverages the power of geo-location, gamification and Ai, to enable a whole new level of user experience for both bottled water consumers and its provider, by creating a new sense of community and ecosystem.

The “myMonchique” app includes 3 main features:

1. Water intake monitoring. Helps you keep hydrated all day long based on dynamic parameters such as age, weight, height, activity levels and weather.

2. Bottle Registration. Allows the user to register all the bottle types from the provider, and earn points towards their gamification rankings.

3. Recycling. Empowers and motivates the user to go to a public recycling point, and via a community-validated on-the-act selfie (we call it EcoSelfie™ ) the user actively recycles its previously registered bottles from the provider and earns extra points towards its gamification all-of-fame leaderboard. Points can then be exchanged for more bottles of water or merchandising and so on.

The “myMonchique” app is available now in the Apple App store and Google Play Store . This announcement will officially be made at this year’s Web Summit.
