Montreal (Canada): ImmerVision, inventor of the 360° panomorph lens and worldwide expert in immersive optical technology, has licensed its unique ImmerVision Enables technology to Tamaggo, Inc., a Canadian-based consumer technology company.
Tamaggo is first to use the ImmerVision patented technology in a digital camera. The company’s initial consumer product, the Tamaggo 360-imager, is a 14MP device that captures a 360o x 200o field of view and has already earned the company recognition as a CES 2012 Design and Engineering Award Honoree.
The device, which has a distinctive egg-shaped and ergonomic design, will easily interface with computers, TVs, mobile phones, and tablets, making image-sharing easy.
The product using advance panomorph optics leapfrogs today’s other 360° options in the consumer marketplace – including fish-eye lenses, mirrors and rotating-head attachments – and will be previewed at the upcoming international Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas.
Pascale Nini, ImmerVision’s President and CEO, says: “We are particularly enthusiastic about Tamaggo’s innovative design, which makes digital 360° panoramas accessible, easy and fun for all. And the panoramic images generated by this camera can be manipulated with any ImmerVision Enables software, for a truly immersive experience.”
