Newsletter 01/2015


Shortly before the end of the year we received a nice message that our Perception Camera will be awarded with the inVISION Top Innovation 2015. The first issue of the inVision in March will present the prize winners. There is no better way to start a new year than to get honored for a brand new development. The Perception Camera is an innovative 3D camera which combines several 3D methods. The goal: to profit from the method's advantages and compensate for its disadvantages. At the same time we added some useful and unqiue features to implement several long-range and close-range applications with the same product.

We will publish more details in a future mailing.

Have fun with the other news and all the best for 2015.
