Digital Twins, bokeh effect or T*coating: this is how the technology of professional cameras is applied to mobile phones.

PARIS, April 22 (Benin News / EP) –

Smartphone manufacturers have the great challenge of The technology of professional cameras on mobile phones, with much smaller dimensions, and over the last decade they have achieved impressive results. To do this, they rely on the experience of the major players in the sector, who try to apply their knowledge to this market. Such is the case with vivo and ZEISS, which have teamed up to bring professional photographic standards to the world of smartphones.

Through the innovative Imaging Lab, companies are setting new benchmarks for excellence in smartphone imaging by developing new vivo devices that use advanced optical design and professional-grade standards. Experts from both companies explained the technologies they apply in this process in an attempt to enable users to take perfect shots from their mobile device.

In this sense, they emphasize the creation and prototyping of new products. lens designs through “digital twins”, a technique developed by ZEISS to design high-end lenses for cinema and photography. The new models of living lenses are modeled virtually to accurately simulate and test their performance, ensuring that new camera systems can be rapidly prototyped and perfected with this ‘digital twin’ technology, resulting in higher resolution images with higher contrast and less flare.


For reasons of size, some techniques used in professional cameras cannot be applied to mobile phones using hardware elements. This is the case of the famous bokeh effect a shallow depth of field, which reinforces the blur in portraits and must be obtained on smartphones. by the use of “software”, the large objectives not being able to be integrated in the equipment..

Using advanced computational techniques, vivo engineers, supported by the optical expertise of ZEISS R&D teams, have developed ways to accurately replicate the look of portraits that can be achieved with the lenses. from this legendary company specializing in photography on vivo’s flagship devices.

Another relevant element is the incorporation of the T*Coating Technologycertified by ZEISS. To improve image quality, even microscopic elements can make a big difference. With a nanostructure that is more than a hundred times smaller than a grain of sandT*Coating is an advanced solution that makes T*Coating the glass surface of the lenses is virtually invisible.


This technology, which is commonly used to reduce glare in professional lenses to achieve superior clarity, contrast and quality, has been incorporated into some of Vivo’s newest mobile phones. The presence of this coating on the lens means that Adverse or “ghost” effects are almost completely eliminated. (also known as “ghosting”).

Finally, to achieve the standards demanded by experts from both companies, smartphones must go through a rigorous quality control process. Each new device must comply with over twenty different image quality settings.with testing of up to 150 different camera modules and over 5,000 test images for each device, guaranteeing your results.

“When vivo partners with ZEISS, the focus on excellence starts from day one. With its rigorous production quality management standards, vivo has demonstrated that it meets the high demands of ZEISS, a prerequisite for the start of the partnership in 2020. With the development of each product, the high standards are again fixed from the start”, explains Vivo, aware that the photographic section is one of the most appreciated by its users.
