Today, Big Bang LLC announced the receipt of Patent # US 7,512,833 B1 from the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office for the proprietary technology in the Universal Imaging Utility (UIU). This is the first patent approval for the company.
Developed in 2004 by Big Bang LLC, the UIU remains the only program able to create a Windows PC image that, once captured and deployed, will work effectively on any other PC regardless of make or model. A master image is created that contains the necessary hardware configurations, registry settings, drivers and appropriate Microsoft® Sysprep adjustments, to allow cloning and conversion between disparate hardware platforms.
The patent is a significant milestone in solidifying Big Bang as the definitive leader in hardware-independent PC imaging. “Our customers have been aware of, and excited by, our technology from the outset,” stated owner Adam Murphy, “the patent issuance, however, reinforces our credibility within the IT world.”
The UIU has been effectively deployed to over 1.5 million PC’s worldwide for companies, government and healthcare agencies, and educational institutions.
