Light working with Sony to improve multi-camera performance on smartphones

Camera maker Light, which came into limelight four years ago with the L16 digital compact camera, announced that it is working with Sony to  develop “multi-image sensor solutions”. 

The partnership will allow Light to use Sony’s image sensors in its computational imaging solutions and reference designs. The reference designs will combine Light’s multi-camera technology with Sony’s image sensors to create new applications and solutions for smartphones with four or more cameras. 

“Sony is the recognized quality and market share leader in image sensors and we are thrilled to partner with them,” said Dave Grannan, CEO and co-founder, Light. “We are entering an entirely new era of intelligent imaging applications that will transform smartphones, autonomous vehicles, and security systems. With Sony’s world-class image sensors, we can introduce new innovations in the multi-camera imaging space.”

“We are excited to be working with Light and driving multi-sensor-based products and solutions into the market,” said Hank Ochi, president of Component Solutions Business Division, Sony Electronics Inc. “Light and its technology are transforming how devices see the world. This new partnership will allow us to work together to evolve and speed up the design of today’s multi-image sensor enabled connected devices. Starting today, our jointly developed reference designs will help our smartphone OEMs to quickly and easily enhance the imaging capability of multi-camera enabled smartphones.”

The collaboration between Light and Sony will certainly benefit smartphone photography, especially when there is a growing number of phones with four or more cameras.
