DxO DOP EDoF:
An Ultra Low Cost Alternative to Autofocus
The possibilities for mobile phone cameras are limited only by the technology. By increasing the image quality and feature-sets of low-cost smartphones and other devices, DxO is helping usher in a whole new wave of fun and practical uses for cameras. These include social media, bar code scanning, instant insurance appraisals, and agricultural management in emerging economies.
DxO DOP, the latest generation of our Extended Depth of Field (EDoF) technologies, is designed to meet the increasing demand for smartphones that are both thinner and cheaper while offering higher image quality. DxO DOP provides twice the depth of field improved performance compared to the previous DxO DOP generations already included in millions of phones.
DxO DOP key benefits include:
Best image quality: crisp image from short distances to infinity with natural rendering and no artifacts
Full support for machine reading applications: 0.25mm 1D and 2D bar code scan, A4 document scan, business card scan
Lower cost than autofocus: no actuator, plastic lens, standard lens and camera module manufacturing process, yield improvement, lenses available from multiple sources, low-footprint silicon
Best user experience: instant focus with no shutter lag; always in focus, including in low light; high definition selfie
Easy integration: sensor noise untouched
Compatibility with latest pixels, including BSI and 1.1µ pixels
DxO DOP in your system
DxO DOP is available in two versions:
As an RTL IP that can be integrated either in a sensor or in a processor chip
As a firmware plug-in running on any chip at any size including DxO IPC
DxO DOP is available in several chips from several silicon vendors, covering resolutions from 3 to 8 megapixels.
Camera module with DxO DOP
DxO Labs partners with leading optics manufacturers to design and promote innovative optical systems based upon DxO DOP. By transferring some its intellectual property to the optical manufacturers, DxO Labs enables the manufacturers to design and manufacture their own lenses that are compatible with DxO DOP technology.
