New Miniature Panomorph Lens for VR and 360° Cameras in Mass Production

BARCELONA, Spain–(BUSINESS WIRE)–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.

Patrice Roulet Fontani, VP Technology and Co-Founder of ImmerVision, at
the recent ICCE 2017 conference in Las Vegas stated, “Imagine the
product innovations that can occur when combining 1/4 inch sensors with
a miniature 360° panomorph lens that produces consistent high quality
images”.
