Our services

Camera development consult (starting from 1 day)

We are more than happy to share our experience and knowledge of the camera development process. Our design team will perform a technical analysis of your project, focusing on embodiment design, potential risk management, manufacturability, design choices and costs.

 

Feasibility study (two weeks) – € 4000

An elaborate two-week analysis of your product/idea/concept, aimed at testing the feasibility of your product.  After two weeks you will have a better understanding of the success rate of the product, the internal components, market demand, manufacturability and the final costs of the product and development.

 

Camera design, mechanical engineering and software integration

Looking for a new design strategy to boost your camera sales? Our experience and expertise yields in low risk, time and cost efficient camera designs that are ready for mass production. We carry our the complete development cycle covering strategy, design, engineering and software integration. We can create fully functioning prototypes within months.

4 WAYS TO DEVELOP A CAMERA

1. Existing Modules

Use full for small quantities and to get a feel for the usecase

2. Re-brand an exsisting camera

Your content goes here. Edit or remove this text inline or in the module Content settings. You can also style every aspect of this content in the module Design settings and even apply custom CSS to this text in the module Advanced settings.

3. Use an ODM (original design manufacturer)

There are a lot of different (often Asian) camera suppliers that can adjust their existing camera to your specifications. We can help identify the ideal supplier and redesign the housing to suit the look and feel you are looking for.

Upsides:
– The development time and budget can be smaller
– Small quantities are possible

Downsides:
– Your ideas will educate the competition
– The level of customization is limited
– No excess to the lower level software
– ODM’s focus is production, optimization is not their priority
– Lock-in, you cannot move to another production partner.
– Expect changes in price and quality

4. Develop a custom camera

With a custom design we can control all aspects of the product design and fully optimize the user experience.

Upsides:
– Full control of components and configuration.
– Low level control of the software
– Full ownership of the all intellectual property rights
– Risks are easier managed

Better control the production and price flexible and
Downsides:
– Longer development time and budget
– Hard to get access to the newest Ambarella / Qualcomm chip-sets

For smaller quantities, we have found a good, cost-effective chip-set and developed a video module around it with most of the important e basic functionalities.
