VRmagic Celebrates 10 Years in Imaging

MANNHEIM, Germany, Feb. 5, 2013 — VRmagic GmbH is celebrating 10 years of developing, manufacturing and selling cameras and image processing components for industrial and scientific applications.

The company began in 2001 as a producer of simulators for medical training. However, it soon established itself in the image processing market with the introduction of a USB 2.0 camera developed for the tracking system of the intraocular surgery simulator Eyesi Surgical. The camera was not intended to be sold as a stand-alone product, but with significant interest from the industry, VRmagic offered the camera as an independent component.

“With the VRmC-3, we were the first to combine CMOS sensor and USB 2.0 for applications in industry and medicine,” said Managing Director Dr. Markus Schill. “We made the strategic decision to build up a separate business division, Imaging, with professional structures.”

Over the decade, VRmagic has grown to be a company with 50 employees, a sales organization in Cambridge, Mass., and two independent business divisions.

VRmagic launched its first two camera models, which sold more than 10,000 units, in 2003. Then in 2008, VRmagic developed a multisensor camera with four pixel-synchronous sensors, and recently it released the D3 camera platform with increased performance and a higher storage capacity.
