Company Summary

Our optical zoom technology will eliminate the consumer's frustration when taking pixelated digitally-zoomed images and video with their cell phone. Over 500 million photographs and 8.5m hours of video are shared each day, and handset manufacturers seek desperately to differentiate themselves. Customers are mobile phone manufacturers (e.g. Apple, Samsung, LG, HTC), and/or other camera module or CMOS sensor suppliers (e.g. Largan, Sharp, Sony).
