All 60 Uncanny Vision employees will be retained, and Eagle Eye plans to expand the Bangalore office. Eagle Eye is committed to supporting Uncanny Vision’s current customers, and will continue to build its global infrastructure to provide the very best 24/7 support to its valued customers around the world.
