- Form Factor
Reducing the number of lens elements in digital cameras from 10 to six reduces the size of the final compound lens by 60%. The overall length of the optical system also is shorter.
- Improved Performance
Curved image sensors reduce—and in some cases completely eliminate—optical aberrations like curvature of field and the vignetting effect. They also deliver increased brightness and a wider field of view.
Reducing the number of lens elements and eliminating aspheric lens elements, which will be unnecessary, will lower the cost of systems integrating Pixcurve technology.
Fewer components means quicker and easier assembly—a major advantage for manufacturers.
