PrimeSense Launches Tiny 3D Sensor

December 12, 2012

The Capri is a next-generation, low-cost depth acquisition system on chip, offering improved algorithms, including multi-modal 3D sensing techniques, for small form factor electronics applications.

TEL AVIV, Israel /PRNewswire/ -- PrimeSense, a leader in Natural Interaction and 3D sensing solutions, announced the launch of its next-generation embedded 3D sensor, Capri, demonstrating a "revolutionary small form factor and low cost." PrimeSense will debut Capri as part of its World of 3D Sensing suite at the Renaissance Hotel in Las Vegas, January 8–11, at the 2013 International Consumer Electronics Show (CES).

PrimeSense's breakthrough reference design uses Capri, PrimeSense's next-generation depth acquisition system on chip, with improved algorithms, including multi-modal 3D sensing techniques. The Capri system on chip, together with the new reference design, provides the "most versatile 3D sensing platform available today, in the tinniest form factor, making it ideal for embedding in consumer electronics devices, such as PCs, all-in-one PCs, tablets, laptops, mobile phones, TVs, consumer robotics, and more. Samples for development and integration for leading OEMs will be available by mid-2013.

"Using cutting-edge technologies, our newest generation of sensors is robust, accurate, and affordable," said Inon Beracha, CEO, PrimeSense. "With a mind-blowing size reduction, Capri's size is about 10 times smaller than the PrimeSense's current generation of 3D sensors, and it is certainly the "smallest 3D sensor in the world." Capri is small enough to fit into today's most popular Smartphones while still providing the highest depth performance (short and long range). We see Capri adding depth sensing and Natural Interaction to numerous devices and markets, revolutionizing the user experience and usability in ways that no one could imagine until now."

PrimeSense will demonstrate the Capri at the 2013 International CES in its suite: Renaissance Hotel, second floor Capital room, Las Vegas January 8–11.
