Polight and Movidius jointly demo 3D camera at MWC in Barcelone this year. "Integrating poLight TLens has enabled us to significantly increase the speed and performance of our new 3D mobile camera demonstration," said Sean Mitchell, CEO at Movidius. "In addition to the faster AF speed, synchronizing the two cameras using the TLens dramatically improves the 3D performance compared to traditional VCM, showcasing our high quality 3D multimedia features."
"I am very pleased to see that TLens speed and the easy synchronization methods can remove a barrier to reaching high quality 3D video capture," said Christian Dupont CEO of poLight.
Update: Optics.org: In an unrelated PR poLight announced that it has collaborated with TI to produce in large volume the Optical MEMS part of its TLens, resulting in faster focus time and lower power consumption.
"Texas Instruments with their MEMS engineering expertise and their worldwide manufacturing operation significantly strengthen our ability to serve our camera module customer demands," said Christian Dupont, CEO of poLight.
Texas Instruments worked very closely with poLight to develop a process that met the device performance needs while at the same time met cost goals. "The new TLens device from poLight AS benefits from TI’s advanced MEMS development and processing expertise along with TI’s experience in very high volume manufacturing," said Faa-Ching Wang, manager of the Heater Chip Business Unit at Texas Instruments. "TI and poLight have collaborated on this innovative device that will help bring greater autofocus performance and functionality to camera phone applications."
