Innovation

From the very beginning innovation has been the focus of our company. We are not only the pioneers of artistic iris photography, but also engineers and inventors.

Over the years we have developed a technology that presents your eye as authentic as possible, reflection-free, consistently sharp and without trimming. Other providers are often content with focussing on the centre of the iris only, since its edges can only truly be captured with increased effort. In addition, light reflections are often retouched with a loss of detail.

For our overall concept we received the Innovation Award of the Leipzig Chamber of Crafts in 2018.

Optics and lighting technology

One of the secrets of our technology is our lighting system, which allows us to precisely control the light during the photograph. With the help of numerous experimental setups and optical calculations we have succeeded in mastering the magic of light.

Electrical engineering

The electronics are the control centre of our camera system: Here all components are supplied and connected. It is preceded by a number of calculations, simulations and test setups. The result of circuit diagram drafts and layout sketches is a central circuit board which our graduate electrical engineer understands as a functional technology and a piece of art at the same time.

The fabrication is done by hand, connections are soldered and cables and connectors are assembled. Finally, the system is tested, measured and put into operation.

Programming

A perfect image can only be taken if the sequence of all individual steps is perfectly executed. The camera's code connects all the modules and concerts their interaction in a fraction of a second. A software is managing the setting and control of the system and sophisticated routines prepare the qualitative post-process.

3D printing and varnishing

The use of 3D printing technology allows us to quickly materialize our ideas. We not only use it to develop prototypes - we can also do most of our production in-house. This means we have the entire process chain in our own hands - from printing and painting to assembling and commissioning.

Design and ergonomics

In the beginning, the connecting element of our camera system was a framework of aluminium profiles. The first lighting modules were functionally covered with plywood. At the time the motto was: "Form follows function".

Function is still in the foreground and has undergone constant improvements, but today the design is in no way inferior to it: Our latest model, together with the lighting, platform and headrest, forms an ergonomic unit developed in-house and is a real eye-catcher.
