InVisage Technologies, Inc. Key Developments
InVisage Technologies, Inc. Launches Smartphone Camera Sensor Quantum13
Nov 11 15
InVisage Technologies, Inc. introduced its inaugural product, the Quantum13 camera sensor. Leveraging the power of advanced nanotechnology found in the company's QuantumFilm platform, the Quantum13 captures images with full tonal ranges in high and low light, and is the first smartphone camera sensor with an electronic global shutter. The Quantum13 is the world's first electronic image sensor that does not use silicon but rather a quantum dot film, QuantumFilm, to capture light. QuantumFilm has a natural light response curve matching the human eye. As a result, the Quantum13 has a powerful single-shot high dynamic range (HDR) mode called QuantumCinema. This mode provides up to three additional stops of dynamic range compared to conventional CMOS image sensors. Both still and video modes will see this level of performance without any added HDR software processing, which can often cause a missed moment and a distorted image. Quantum13 also offers the world's first electronic global shutter for smartphones, a camera technology that enables full frame capture instead of the cumbersome rolling shutter method that CMOS sensors use to scan from the top of the image to the bottom. With this electronic global shutter, Quantum13-enabled smartphones can capture crisp still photos of fast-moving subjects at full frame shutter speeds normally reserved for digital SLRs, and deliver smooth 2K and 4K video without any rolling shutter distortion. Quantum13 is a 13-megapixel, 1.1-micron pixel camera sensor that fits in an 8.5-millimeter by 8.5-millimeter module. With light absorption eight times faster than silicon, QuantumFilm creates an ultra-thin light capture medium that accommodates much higher incident angles of light, resulting in an unprecedented 4-millimeter camera module height. This thinner camera module allows for even thinner smartphone camera designs. Quantum13 is sampling now and initial shipments to smartphone vendors are expected this quarter.

Invisage Technologies, Inc. Appoints Emmanuel Lubezki as a Advisory Board
Nov 9 15
InVisage Technologies Inc. announced the addition of famed cinematographer Emmanuel Lubezki, ASC, AMC to the InVisage advisory board. Mr. Lubezki is the cinematographer of numerous award-winning films including Gravity (2013) and Birdman: Or (The Unexpected Virtue of Ignorance) (2014). Mr. Lubezki is the Company’s first artistic advisor and will help shape and fine-tune the specifications of upcoming InVisage QuantumFilm camera image sensors for smartphones and mobile devices.
InVisage Technologies Inc. Opens its First High-Volume, Fully Automated QuantumFilm Sensor Manufacturing Facility in Hsinchu Science Park, Taiwan
Jun 17 15
InVisage Technologies Inc. opened its first high-volume, fully automated QuantumFilm sensor manufacturing facility in Hsinchu Science Park, Taiwan. As part of the opening ceremony in Taiwan, InVisage executives joined representatives from Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company Ltd. (TSMC), Hsinchu Science Park, and additional supply chain partners to unveil the new facility with a formal ribbon cutting. A factory tour for guests followed. The new factory, named QFAB3, brings next-generation nanoscale manufacturing to Taiwan as InVisage prepares to introduce QuantumFilm technology later this year. QuantumFilm is an extremely light-sensitive layer of quantum dots that replaces the conventional silicon photodiode in digital camera sensors and provides improved dynamic range, greater performance in low light, and global shutter capabilities. More details are preserved in both bright and dark areas, and fast motion can be captured with less distortion. The material is customizable to allow for dynamic adjustment of sensitivity and resolution, and can be optimized for better performance at wavelengths ranging from visible to infrared. The manufacturing facility features unprecedented sub-5 nanometer process geometry within an ISO Class 10 cleanroom. It is designed to support a wide range of products, from mobile phones to high-end cameras as well as drones and other IoT devices that require high performance cameras.
