FiveFocal was founded in 2009 with the goal of bringing system-level design to the next-generation of imaging systems. To achieve this goal, we assembled a team of experts in computational imaging, lens design, sensor modeling, image processing, optical engineering, and software development.
In our first 7 years, we developed and used our own internal software to complete over 100 engineering services projects spanning a large range of applications. From miniature computational imagers to space telescopes, we selected projects that would challenge our thinking and refine our tools.
In late 2015 we started externally selling one of our internal engineering tools called Imager™ as a way of complementing our design services. Imager™ is software that enables you to specify a complete imaging system, try out “what if” scenarios, and visualize the results.
