AHRENSBURG, Germany, Feb. 2, 2011 — Digital industrial camera provider Allied Vision Technologies GmbH has acquired camera manufacturer VDS Vosskühler of Osnabrück, Germany.

Incorporated in 1985, VDS specializes in the market segment outside of the visible light in the NIR and LWIR/thermography spectrum. It also develops CCD cameras for visible light, focusing on customer-specific variations for OEMs.
