Apple Acquires InVisage Technologies for iPhone Camera Improvements

Apple Acquires InVisage

This week, Apple revealed its acquisition of the Taiwan company InVisage Technologies that has expertise in imaging sensor technology. Founded in 2006 by present CTO Ted Sargent. InVisage is presently constructing a factory in Hsinchu Science Park, Taiwan.

Apple does not disclose its acquisitions and acquisition purposes. But TechCrunch pieced a few clues together, like several InVisage employees going to Apple for work, and InVisage using its own patent to Apple’s law firm. In the follow-up, Apple confirmed to TechCrunch about the acquisition.

InVisage, having more than 100 patented technologies, has its major technology named as the QuantumFilm image sensor that ‘uses new materials made up of quantum dots’ for absorbing light. This technology is more unique than the traditional sensors, as it provides developed light absorption that lets cameras take qualitative photos even in low-light conditions. It relies on silicon photoconductive layers for its sensors and has vast electronic storage space as well.

On the other hand, Apple is on course to cope up with other smartphone brands while speeding the process of evolution of the iPhone cameras, as stated by a list of DxOMark. The list further points out that the iPhone X camera scored 97 points, finishing second to Google Pixel 2 camera that scored 98. The cameras of iPhone 8 Plus and iPhone 8 scored 94 and 92 consecutively, ranking fourth and sixth.

As the latest industry speculations go, Apple will be using the technology of InVisage for further developing the camera capabilities and FaceID capabilities of iPhones.
