Immervision, the Montréal-based developer and licensor of patented, wide-angle optic and imaging technology announces the industry’s first super wide-angle 125° field-of-view (FoV) with highest resolution and image clarity edge-to-edge panomorph lens for smartphone and consumer camera manufacturers.
New licensee of the Immervision patented super wide-angle lens, Taiwanese Zhong Yang Technology Co., Ltd. (JMO) Corporation, is the manufacturer of the 125° FoV lens. OFILM Group Co., LTD. (OFILM) is the first camera module manufacturer (CMM) to offer this lens with the SONY IMX471 16 Megapixel sensor for smartphone cameras.
With combined super wide-angle FoV, a low f-number, good relative illumination and superior image quality at the edges, this lens combination distinguishes itself easily from lower-quality competitors in the market. Furthermore, the use of Immervision patented optical technology help maintain a competitive small-size ratio for lens assemblies, while insuring unchallenged quality.
“We are excited to partner with Immervision as we manufacture and bring to market this super wide-angle panomorph lens for the next generation of smartphones,” said Deve Lee, General Manager at JMO Corporation. “The image quality of these Immervision lenses with a remarkable f/1.9 and mastered distortion control, is unmatched in the industry.”
“We welcome JMO Corporation as our newest licensed manufacturing partner,” said Alessandro Gasparini, Executive Vice President and Chief Commercial Officerat Immervision. “Together, JMO and OFILM bring the highest edge-to-edge, wide-angle image clarity and resolution to today’s sophisticated smartphone cameras.”
