Applications for Algolux technologies

Algolux technology can be implemented in essentially all digital camera markets.

AllCameras

We are currently focusing on smartphones and tablets, a fast-growing market where cameras and computational power are tightly intertwined. As smartphones attain a certain level of parity across vendors, camera quality and device design have become very strong differentiators. These are two areas where Algolux technology makes a direct impact by helping devices stand out.

Benefits of Algolux technology


BetterPictures-(2)Our technology allows manufacturers’ devices to capture clearer pictures with their existing equipment, especially in low-light conditions.


ThinnerCamerasUsing our algorithms, custom optics can be used to reduce the weight and z-height of a camera module, making for a thinner device.


CheaperOptics-(2)The quantity and quality of optical elements needed is diminished, allowing manufacturers to obtain similar or better results at a lower cost.


Technology: Algolux Virtual Lens

Algolux Virtual Lens corrects optical aberrations through software. This enables sharper, more detailed photos. Additionally, custom optics can be used in conjunction with Virtual Lens to reduce the weight and z-height of a camera module, making for a thinner device.

Examples of Virtual Lens – improving a picture taken with a smartphone’s camera:

Technology: Algolux Virtual IS

Algolux Virtual IS corrects motion blur and shutter shake, two common problems that arise when taking pictures in low-light conditions. Virtual IS uses a secondary camera (for example, the front-facing camera on a smartphone) to track the micro-movements causing the blur. It then uses this information to deblur the image. The resulting low-light pictures are sharp and blur-free.
