Immervision announces the World’s thinnest camera module for the laptop industry.
Immervision’s new 8 MP ultra-wide-angle camera module enables laptops, tablets, and notepads with a superior wide-angle vision system with lowlight capabilities in an unprecedented miniaturized lens.
LAS VEGAS, Jan. 7, 2022 – Immervision, the world’s leading developer of advanced vision systems combining optics, image processing, and sensor fusion technology, is pleased to announce the release of its new 8 MP wide-angle camera module for laptops, tablets, and notepads, which features Immervision’s patented technology for edge-to-edge image clarity.
Immervision’s 8 MP ultra-wide-angle lens and sensor combo is only 3.8 mm thick and provides a high-resolution, wide-field-of-view, and superior distortion control solution for a number of applications. This technology can capture larger scenes with appropriate image sensor coverage, pixel density, and quality in a range of videoconferencing applications.
In order to meet customers’ needs for high-quality video conferencing, laptop makers must solve the difficult problem of increasing video call resolution and camera field of view while fitting advanced camera gear into restricted space. They will have to figure out how to make both the optics and the camera module smaller. Many people are unable to do so, leaving them with distorted photos, low resolution, and cameras with a small field of vision that operate badly in low light.
“Working with OEMs we have been able to help them maximize the field of view and image quality in the few millimetres of space available in modern devices,” explains Patrice Roulet Fontani, co-founder and VP of Technology at Immervision. “This miniature camera module can be used in conjunction with Immervision’s Wide-Angle Distortion Correction Dewarping Algorithms, with Face and Body Protection Algorithm, enabling OEMs with an unprecedented, novel, and fresh video call experience.”
This announcement continues the company’s proven track record of working with clients to develop and deliver vision system projects from concept to mass production, while authoring multiple patents in 28 patent families, including wide-angle and freeform optics, image processing, sensor fusion, and AI.
