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

OUR DESIGN WINS
Leading Companies that are Differentiating their
Products with Immervision Technology
The twenty-gram steady cam
The Insta360 GO is the world’s smallest stabilized camera with Immervision ultra-wide angle panomorph lens.
Users can easily shoot 30 or 60-second clips with the Insta360 GO and then its AI will help to discover and edit their best shots. The Insta360 GO is small enough to go places that other camera can’t while capturing every angle without getting in the way.
The first smartphone with an embedded action camera
Crosscall has created the Trekker-X4, the world’s first smartphone to integrate an action camera. With a 170° panomorph lens and Immervision algorithms at its core, the Trekker-X4 provides stabilized wide-angle images, with a perception as close to the human eye that a camera can get.
This sophisticated device flawlessly combines the functions of an action camera with smartphone technology. Beyond world class smartphone features into a ruggedized and water resistant unique designed case, the Trekker-X4 smartphone offers everything you would expect from a top of the line action camera allowing you to experience, capture, edit and share all of life’s moments.
Moto 360 Camera
Capturing 360° high resolution photos and videos
The Moto 360 Camera with its integrated front and rear high-resolution ultra wide-angle panomorph lens provides high quality spherical 360° views.
This camera add-on is an accessory available for the Moto Z family of smartphones and has outstanding low-light performance and superior image quality across the entire field of view.
Garmin VIRB 360
Capturing a complete sphere of high-resolution video up to 5.7k
The Garmin VIRB 360 is a rugged, waterproof camera. This action camera with ultra wide-angle Immervision panomorph lenses captures a complete sphere of high-resolution video up to 5.7K and 360-degree audio — even photos.
The VIRB 360 is the first of its kind, eliminating lengthy editing processes with unrivaled one-click 4K spherical stabilization for smooth and steady footage — no matter how rough the adventure.
Capture, view, edit and share – all in one device
We helped Acer launch the Holo360, its 360° 4K camera. This handheld camera is equipped with two ultra wide-angle panomorph camera lenses and captures consistent images of the highest quality across the entire field of view. With the latest Immervision Enables 2.0 technology, the Holo360 combines the power to stitch videos in real-time with no visible stitching seam, integrated LTE connectivity, and a 3-inch touchscreen for operation.
