Laptop manufacturers, answering customers’ demands for high quality video conferencing, are faced with the difficult problem of increasing the video call resolution and camera field of view while having a limited space to fit advanced camera hardware. They must find ways to shrink both lenses and the camera module. Many are unable to achieve this, leaving them struggling with distorted images, low resolution, and narrow field of view cameras that perform poorly in low-light conditions.
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.
“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.”
