Barcelona, Spain, February, 27, 2017: ImmerVision, the inventor of the 360-degree panomorph lens and worldwide expert in immersive optical and imaging technology announces the mass production of a new 360° panomorph lens by Kolen, a global lens supplier, optimized for VR and 360° camera products.

Designed by ImmerVision, this new 5mm, 187° FoV panomorph lens is to be integrated onto mobile consumer products and combined with 1/4 inch, 8 Mpx sensors. When combined with sensors from Sony, Samsung or OmniVision, this miniature powerhouse preserves the original image pixel density and allows for full quality across the image rendered.

Moreover, its 187° field of view is optimal for back to back cameras with ImmerVision Enables 2.0 image processing technology allowing for perfect stitching with no ghosting. Product manufacturers looking for a consumer grade miniature 360° lens for back to back cameras, smartphones, tablets, IoT devices, cameras, action cameras and drone cameras can leverage ImmerVision Enables 2.0 to enable their products to capture high quality images in 360 for VR viewing and for sharing on social media platforms.
