EMVA Business Conference 2016

Keynote on ‘Brexit’ more actual then ever!

The 2016 EMVA conference joined 120 attendees and guests for top noche speeches and excellent networking opportunities in Edinburgh.

With his opening keynote ‘In or Out of Europe: An Economic Perspective‘ Martin Vander-Weyer, Financial Journalist and Columnist for The Spectator, got the audience into the Brexit scenario just days before the British referendum.
Very seldom a conference keynote hits an international industry relevant topic with such high currentness.

During 100+ pre-scheduled face-to-face meetings attendees could meet their peers and built new business relationships or simply exchange ideas with colleagues.

The work of Mr. Tolga Birdal, TU Munich, on ‘Reconstruction via Detection: Efficient and Automatic Reconstruction from Unorganized 3D Scans‘ was honored with the 2016 Young Professional Award.

In his conference wrap-up EMVA General Secretary Thomas Lübkemeier could look back on three days full of information but also very enjoyable networking hours during the evening events. Finally he announced the 2017 EMVA Business Conference to take place in Prague, Czech Republic, from 22 – 24 June 2017.

Tough supply situation ahead for SONY CMOS Image Sensors

Due to the recent heavy earthquakes on Japan’s Kyushu Island, production of various semiconductor manufacturers, especially in the Kumamoto area, has been interrupted. SONY’s manufacturing site for CMOS image sensors and other CMOS components like Micro OLED or LCOS displays has been affected. SONY is currently undertaking serious efforts to re-ramp production as quickly as possible. As of this week the back-end processes like assembly and testing in the Kumamoto fab are back to work, and the wafer fab areas will be started sequentially as of today. Although there was a delay in the supply of components to SONY from certain third-party suppliers that also have manufacturing facilities in the Kumamoto region, inventory adjustments have been made and a timeframe for regaining supply levels is now in place, so no material impact is anticipated on SONY’s business operations.

Axel Krepil, head of the Image Sensor Sales Division of SONY’s dedicated distributor FRAMOS said …. Read on…



FRAMOS – The value of independent performance measurements for sensors,
cameras and lenses

The large number of manufacturers and models and the wide-ranging functionality available on the image processing market often make it difficult for customers and system integrators to choose the right camera or image sensor for their specific application. Framos Press
Many technical data sheets do not contain all the necessary information and, depending on the manufacturer, they may be based on different performance figures, which means that they cannot be compared with one another. This is where the FRAMOS Technical Support comes in, with a comprehensive range of testing and measurement services. The product expertise of our image processing specialists allows them to constantly improve the services they provide and to offer customers detailed, non-proprietary advice. Additional services include running individual tests under conditions that are specific to the customer and the application and testing product ranges for camera manufacturers. Read on…
