VP, TrueFocus Wavefront Coding Solutions
Apart from sounding rather wickedly cool, Wavefront appears to be rather shit-hot. SMS Text News reader Tim dropped me a note to let me know about it.
Have a quick read…
OmniVision Technologies, Inc., a leading independent supplier of CMOS CameraChip(TM) solutions for high-volume imaging applications, today launched its first TrueFocus(TM) camera with Wavefront Coding(TM) technology for the mobile handset market. TrueFocus revolutionizes camera technology by offering true ‘point-and-shoot’ capability where the entire image is always in focus and always available for instant one-click capture.
I’d like that. Big time. Very cool.
Pictures on mobiles are just getting better and better — the Sony Ericsson K800 is one of the best on the market I’ve seen. But see if we can get some Wavefront coding in there… get in!
It’s quite a cool example — the picture there — showing the difference between your standard 3 megapixel mobile phone camera and the Wavefront equivalent.
