Resolve Optics Ltd. specialises in OEM lens design and manufacture for company's faced with replacing hard to source or obsolete optical components within camera, sensor and instrument systems.
For commercial reasons company's often seek to incorporate 'off-the-shelf' lenses and lens systems in the design of their products. However adopting this strategy necessitates accepting risks including having little control over security of supply and that 'off-the-shelf' lenses typically provide compromised performance compared to an optimised bespoke design.
Recently a company specialising in motion capture approached Resolve Optics Ltd. to replace two lenses that formed key components in their 4 mega pixel camera. Both of the currently used 'off-the-shelf' lenses were being phased out of production by the manufacturers. The 4 Mpixel camera used a very large format sensor which was making it difficult to find an alternative secure supply of suitable lenses that provided the image format, resolution and FOV and could be supplied in quantities of 200 lenses per month. There was also a requirement for costs to be kept down to a minimum.
Resolve Optics solution to this problem was to propose a design and manufacture a lens that would provide the required resolution, FOV and image format. Because the lens was matching the camera performance and image format, something that the previous lenses had not done, the camera performance was improved thereby increasing the market life of the camera system.
For a small cost premium, over the 'off-the-shelf' lenses, the motion capture camera company were able to gain security of supply for their required 200 lenses / month. In addition a commitment that the high performance lenses would not be sold to any company operating within the same field ensured that their new competitive advantage would be maintained.
