"Our recent partnership with Microsoft to create a new line of ToF cameras is taking our capabilities to an even higher level, enabling us to address AI and computer vision applications."
Announced in May 2021, the Orbbec-Microsoft alliance is a collaboration aimed at providing a new class of 3D sensor technologies for robotics, logistics, retail, healthcare and fitness applications. The partnership combines Microsoft's market-leading 3D sensor technology with Orbbec's 3D camera design, development and manufacturing capabilities. The first cameras based on the alliance, a series of high-performance 3D cameras able to produce precise depth images, is expected to debut in early 2022.
Orbbec innovation has resulted in a wide range of 3D imaging products suitable for applications in robotics, automation, retail, healthcare, 3D scanning, smart homes, AR/VR/MR, gaming and many others. Its solutions include both camera-only and 3D camera solutions with onboard processors; various products are designed for limited space, low- to no-light, wide ambient temperatures, and high-resolution performance.
Among Orbbec's latest developments is Time-of-Flight (TOF) technology which can capture the exact position and shape of static or moving objects and scenes with high accuracy. Orbbec TOF sensors have a depth-of-field range from 0.2 to 5 meters with multi-camera synchronization support and can be used in complete darkness.
