San Jose, Calif., June 18, 2020 – Viavi Solutions Inc. (VIAVI) (NASDAQ: VIAV) today announced that OPTRONTEC Inc. (KOSDAQ: 082210) (“OPTRONTEC”), a manufacturer and total solution provider of optical filter, lens and assembly based in South Korea, has agreed to a licensing agreement with VIAVI for patented three-dimensional (3D) sensing technology.
VIAVI is a pioneer and world leader in the field of 3D sensing technology, including state-of the art optical filters. In a typical gesture-recognition system, a light source emits near-infrared light towards a user and an optical filter is used to transmit the emitted light that is reflected by the user to a 3D image sensor, while substantially blocking ambient light. VIAVI’s patented optical filters achieve superior optical performance, a desired reduction in filter thickness, and a reduced center wavelength shift with a change in incidence angle of the reflected light.
“VIAVI is a pioneer in thin film optical coatings with market-leading offerings for military, industrial and consumer electronics applications, including 3D sensing,” said Oleg Khaykin, President and Chief Executive Officer, VIAVI. “We are committed to growing our 3D sensing business through close engagement with global consumer electronics customers and through partnership with leading companies in the consumer electronics supply chain.”
“OPTRONTEC provides sophisticated optical filters for 3D sensing and plans to offer assembly and system based optical solution by integrating filter and lens technology for a wide range of applications in Korea and internationally,” said Mr. Sagoan Hong, Chief Executive Officer, OPTRONTEC. “We look forward to our collaboration with VIAVI as we work together to grow the market for 3D sensing applications.”
The terms and conditions of the licensing arrangement are confidential and are not being disclosed.
