There are acquisitions that are duly confirmed as was the case with the wireless recharging specialist PowerbyProxi, and others for which the manufacturer is more discreet. According to Image Sensors World, the Apple bought InVisage, or at least it would have offered itself the services of several of the talents that make up this Newark, California-based company.
The operation would have been conducted in July of this year. Several InVisage employees have joined Apple, while others are looking for work. InVisage was created in 2006; the company is at the origin of a technology designed to improve shots, particularly in HDR.
The QuantumFilm light-sensitive layer developed by InVisage optimizes the light pick-up of these sensors.
Objective: to obtain “extremely detailed” images, regardless of light conditions. One can easily imagine what this technology could bring to future iPhone and iPad, if Apple wanted to integrate it into its products.
