These results are testament to the high-quality and easy implementation of CRIWARE. All hardware that our middleware resides on is first researched and examined thoroughly and then our tools are optimized for it; Fine tuned to guarantee that the highest levels of quality and performance can be provided to our customers. The CRIWARE logo is based on a television screen and a speaker. These symbols represent the areas that CRI excels in; audio and video. The reason why the television screen and speakers are depicted in white is to represent them as being in a standby mode, waiting patiently for the creators to fill in the color they desire. The dark blue represents our never-ending quest for high-quality and technology, as well as our dedication to repaying the trust shown in us by our customers. The soft and gentle curves have been incorporated to express the flexibility and functionality of middleware.
