WE DESIGN THE MOST ADVANCED
VISION SYSTEMS TO BRING
HUMANITY TO ANY DEVICE

Our Vision

Enabling a machine to see the world as we do

Enabling a machine to understand input is complex. It is machine multi-sensory integration, not processing power, that limits further progress.

To enable devices with intelligent vision -like human sight- and unlock the full potential of AI, we develop advanced wide-angle optics with enhanced image processing and sensor fusion technologies. Our Deep Seeing Technology enables hardware and software manufacturers to equip smart devices with intelligent vision.

Our Technology

Breakthrough Technology

Our Deep Seeing technology rests on commercially-ready patented technology breakthroughs: Wide-angle optics with panomorph vision for augmented resolution and flawless viewing, Sensor Fusion with Data-In-Picture to dramatically improve data collection from video frames and Image Processing algorithms including Real-Time Adaptive Dewarping for outstanding image quality.
