    1. Hi there! Mike Jacoby here from Point Grey. While I can't tell you all the tests that we do the optical inspection mainly looks at the sensor placement on the board - making sure there is no sensor tilt and placed right dead center on the board. We also make sure that the back flange distance is correct as well. The 2:06 tests basically runs the camera through functionality tests at different temperatures. There's a bunch more but I've been sworn to secrecy. If you'd like to know more about some of the testing we do we also have a "quality" page up that goes into a little more detail. http://www.ptgrey.com/camera-quality

      Anyhow, thanks for watching the video!

  3. Does Point Grey build and assemble the PCBs or do they use contract manufacturers?
