About Photonfocus

Photonfocus is one of the world’s leading manufacturers of high-quality CMOS image sensors, OEM camera modules and industrial cameras for sophisticated applications. Since 2019, the high-end technological company based in Lachen, Switzerland has been owned by ISRA VISION GmbH – the global innovation leader for industrial image processing (machine vision), surface inspection and 3D machine vision.


Thanks to its many years of experience and a consistent customer focus, Photonfocus creates intelligent system solutions for all industry sectors on the basis of a modular camera architecture.

The customer can choose from the entire range of cameras with CMOS sensors, from low-light to highly dynamic HDR image sensors. The strictly modular design of the camera systems opens up virtually unlimited possibilities for the individual configuration of application solutions for machine vision. Thanks to their consistent customer orientation, the universal Photonfocus products have established themselves as the “best practice” solution in a wide range of fields.


The high degree of development expertise at Photonfocus makes the company one of the pioneers in embedded vision systems for high-resolution images of surroundings. Embedded processors and memory enable short scanning times and fast data processing directly in the camera system. The modular embedded vision solutions from Photonfocus can be used as all-in-one components for specific applications, or, alternatively, can easily be integrated in existing devices and systems.


The company has received numerous awards and has always stood for innovation in everything it does. Accordingly, the high-dynamic range of CMOS image sensors with global shutter from Photonfocus based on its patented LinLog® technology has set new standards in the market. As a pioneer in the development of software-defined camera platforms, the company continuously pushes the boundaries in terms of image resolution, sensitivity and data processing. As a result, high-end camera systems from Photonfocus are not only used in industry and science, but also in professional elite sport, where a high degree of sensitivity is essential when performing measurements. Photonfocus has also opened up entirely new areas of application with groundbreaking developments in 3D and infrared technology and hyperspectral sensors.


Customers especially benefit from the Swiss high-precision company’s ability to implement technological solutions and its high level of flexibility. Thousands of Photonfocus camera systems have now been installed worldwide with tailor-made customer solutions for a broad range of applications.
