More than a Digital Camera: Imaging Technologies for Mobile Devices

Purchase

This new study examines and evaluates imaging technologies for mobile devices. Today’s camera smartphones are becoming more than just digital cameras; the image quality from a smartphone camera is almost the same quality as a standalone digital camera. Furthermore, new features like auto-focus, rapid fire shots, and facial detection add significant value to mobile devices with picture capturing capabilities. Gesture and facial recognition, and augmented reality are some of the primary technologies that will receive a significant boost from improving imaging technologies.

ABI Research provides an overview of imaging technologies for mobile devices. The report looks into new imaging capturing features, image sensors, image processor, and relevant new services. Shipment statistics are presented for embedded cameras in smartphones and media tablets by key regions. Additionally, new services aided by imaging technology are also published. Commentary is included for all tables and charts.
