TUCSON, Ariz., Oct. 24 /PRNewswire/ -- LightSharp's Euchromic(TM) Digital
Imaging Technology (EDIT) is one of the latest advances featured in a special
issue of OpticsReport (free at http://www.OpticsReport.com). According to
OpticsReport, a respected analyst firm covering the optics industry, EDIT is
the only technique that can improve image quality by removing the stray light
inherent in all cameras with digital-image sensors.
October's OpticsReport explains how the use of technologies such as EDIT
will meet consumers' #1 demand of digital cameras-better image quality. EDIT
improves the contrast, color accuracy, and resolution of digital-camera
images. The technology satisfies consumers, while offering manufacturers the
means to improve and differentiate existing products without costly
image-sensor upgrades. According to Charlie Luebbering, LightSharp's managing
partner, "Everybody wins."
"We issued this special report because the potential for digital-camera
advances is huge. The consumer market for digital cameras is equally large --
30 million homes and offices have them," said Kathleen Perkins, CEO of
OpticsReport. "Historically, sales soar as the Christmas season approaches.
With more than 20 companies competing for market share, the manufacturer to
best balance picture quality and price will dominate the sector," added
OpticsReport polled industry experts and researched the entire digital-
camera market, narrowing it to five leaders and 13 followers. One of the
experts was Dr. Peter Jansson, inventor of the Euchromic Digital Imaging
According to Jansson, "The economics are driving the transition to
digital. As camera prices drop, more people switch and the market increases.
Resulting revenues fuel further development and prices drop more. It's a
completely unstoppable chain reaction. Digital-camera companies will
increasingly struggle to find product-differentiating features such as EDIT
that increase market share."
LightSharp, Tucson, Ariz., develops in-camera processes for removing stray
light from pictures. Medical devices, biometric sensors, and digital cameras
stand to benefit. LightSharp has signed an agreement with an undisclosed
digital-camera manufacturer and has been invited to meet with manufacturers
holding 60% of the world-market share. LightSharp is currently seeking
venture capital investment. For information, call Charlie Luebbering at
