Immervision Introduces Industry’s Highest-Performing
Off-the-Shelf 125 Degree Wide-Angle Lens for Smartphones

 Preconfigured on popular smartphone sensors with ready-to-operate software compatible with the lens

 MONTREAL, CANADA – August 24, 2020  Immervision, the Montreal-based developer and licensor of patented, wide-angle optics and imaging technology, today announced the industry’s highest-performing off-the-shelf 125 degree wide-angle lens (lens first sample available from JMO and camera module from OFILM), enabling smartphone OEMs to improve image capabilities in next-generation phones. Off-the-shelf wide-angle lens reduces the development investment and speed up go-to-market, while improving image quality for landscape, group, and close-up pictures and videos taken with smartphone phones.

While the majority of tier one OEMs have custom wide-angle lens in their phones, tier two and tier three smartphone brands have yet to adopt. Immervision’s technology has been preconfigured on popular sensors including Sony, OmniVision and Samsung, from 20Mpx to 8Mpx to provide best quality and added flexibility on the bill of materials. For detailed compatibility with sensors, view the landing page and all downloadable content.

“Tier two and tier three smartphone OEMs are challenged with delivering the same level of image quality of leading-edge smartphone phones,” said Alessandro Gasparini, Executive Vice President, Operations and Chief Commercial Officer of Immervision. “Immervision’s 125 wide-angle lens incorporates all the industry-leading metrics commonly found in different wide-angle smartphone cameras and integrates them all into one single lens. In the past, these best-in-class metrics were found separately in multiple phones. Now they are available in one lens with ready-to-use software, reducing camera customization and integration time, and providing the same image quality as in well-recognized smartphone phone brands.”
