OEM Cameras, Board Cameras, Embedded Cameras:

In-Depth, Application-Specific CCD and CMOS Camera Design

Camera development is Kappa’s core task. Our ambitious development department, with highly qualified developers, continually drives our technology topics forward.

 

With our technological portfolio we can implement specific client requirements through the entire engineering process. We select appropriate interfaces and sensors for your application and can offer adapted circuit design. In the area of signal processing we can adapt the pre-processing in the camera to your specific application with specific microcontroller/FPGA programming. And of course we also offer specific housing for your requirements and tailor camera software to your needs. We offer precise requirements management that allows your task to be transformed into technical specifications for our cameras. 

 

One flexible technology platform is the JunoBase for scalable customer solutions with embedded cameras. Complex high-end solutions are just as possible as those in the entry level area, from board cameras up to complete systems.

Rugged - extremely robust camera boards according to customer requirements

The complete electrical-mechanical design of our cameras for extreme environments is subject to a specific hardening process.

 

From board cameras up to complete systems

We provide specific housing design with specific connections, bare board cameras or complete systems to meet your requirements. Customer-specific board-level camera solutions are perfect for OEM camera implementation.

 

Innovative partner for more

If your task goes even beyond our current technological portfolio we go one step further - together with you. With our long experience in complex projects we can realistically assess the feasibility. We keep on developing with the future in mind.

 

Platform strategy

Our camera profiles also serve as a technological platform for cost-efficient realization of specific camera solutions.

Industrial 3D

with 30 years' experience

 


Kappa 3D:

from the manipulator in the nuclear reactor up to air-to-air refueling

 

30 years ago, Kappa installed the first 3D stereo camera for manipulators in nuclear research plants – high-end, heavyduty industrial video format cameras. Today, in-flight refueling aircraft are equipped with Kappa‘s newest HD 3D vision systems.

 


Kappa Specialty:

3D for manipulators in extreme environments

 

With an interdisciplinary 3D portfolio, Kappa implements manipulator applications for extreme environmental conditions (sterility, radioactivity, air, water, etc.). Kappa 3D vision systems teach the manipulator: they visualize a crystal clear 3D HD image sequence with endless depth of field for the user.

 

The companies core competencies are ideally combined, for example in the 3D project for air-to-air refueling.

S3D in HD:

Camera pairs with identical control performance or complete system design

 

Just the cameras or the complete 3D system? in both cases Kappa is your partner. We provide high definition camera pairs with a perfectly identical control behaviour: color computation, synchronization, gain, noise behaviour and further more. For this we provide state-of-the-art measurement and calibration environments.

Within the framework of selected industrial projects, Kappa acts as the developer, system provider, and manufacturer of complete 3D vision systems. This encompasses the selection or manufacturing of components, e.g. the processing unit, wireless transmission, video coding, compression, recording technology as well as 3D displays.
