We develop affordable image processing systems by making use of consumer-oriented mass-production development.
We develop products consisting of software, hardware, plastic cases, and other components, while prioritizing the cost to the consumer. In 2013 we developed a camera with integrated image processing functionality. This was based on the concept of providing high-speed functionality in an ultra-compact form at an inexpensive price.
[Company strength] We develop our own products. We develop, manufacture, sell, and maintain image processing units adapted to customizable smart cameras. Our company is positioned at the upper level of Monozukuri craftsmanship, namely development and design. We can manage all processes from prototyping to mass production in-house, with our resident software, hardware, field-programmable gate array (FPGA), mechanical, and case designers. We have a wealth of experience in mass-production development for the consumer market. We excel in miniaturization, complex, design-forward plastic cases, embedded operating systems, and high-speed logic circuits. We also provide cost reduction, molding and casting arrangement, and rationalized assembly. We are a fabless company, so we have a broad network of close relationships with domestic and overseas manufacturing partners. [Business description] We develop our own products, including the development, manufacturing, sales, and maintenance of image processing units adapted to customizable smart cameras. We also provide development, design, prototyping, evaluation, mass production, and maintenance of microcomputer-embedded devices as OEM products. [Industry] Manufacturing [Strength of products/technologies] In 2013 we began selling the Serval Cat Plus (SC+). This is a camera with integrated image processing functionality we developed in-house. Concept: High-speed functionality in an ultra-compact form at an inexpensive price. Features: Computer-less standalone operation; internal FPGA high-speed image processing engine; 5.00-megapixel color CMOS sensor; support for customization by the customer; C-mount lens support; DVI display functionality; and power-over-Ethernet (POE) support. This product was designed completely in-house, so we can fill custom design and OEM orders. [Representative's message] Our company is able to make Monozukuri craftsmanship development and design proposals in many areas. This is because we are positioned at the upper level of Monozukuri craftsmanship, namely development and design. It is also because we have a wealth of experience. We revamped our FPGA image processing engine, which we had started developing in 2005. We made it more compact and less expensive, and ported it to the SC+ camera with integrated image processing functionality. We began selling the SC+ at the start of 2013 as a low-priced manufacturing support unit. We have gone on to deliver SC+ units, including OEM orders, to both domestic and overseas clients. We are currently prototyping and developing a robot-vision image processing system and are aiming for domestic and overseas sales via exhibitions and other venues. [Company structure for market development/overseas expansion] We are a small venture company, but we have a wealth of product development experience. Our company is organized into managers, representatives, and sales agents. We can flexibly handle contracted design, prototyping, and fabless mass production as well as special image processing devices and OEM meeting specific customer requests. [Market share/Ranking] Image processing units in cabinets, machine/robot vision (2D and 3D). [Awards and media coverage] [Awards] New Partnerships approval by METI in 2014. 300 of Japan’s Vibrant Monozukuri (Manufacturing) SMEs selection by METI in 2009; Strategic Core Technology Advancement Program approval in 2010; Nagoya Municipal Industrial Technology Grand Prix, Nagoya Municipal Industrial Research Institute Director’s Award; Aichi Prefecture Top 30 Digital Content Corporations selection; Nagoya, Aichi Business Plan 2012 selection. [Media] Community Vitalization (Japan Foundation for Regional Vitalization); The Semiconductor Industry News; Gijitsu no Hiroba (Nagoya); etc. [Authorization/Certification] Serval Cat (Japanese trademark registration No. 5401437). [Transaction form] Orders for trial manufacturing and development, OEM contracts, licensing contracts, joint development, product sales, etc. [Transaction terms] Payment due on delivery and acceptance, based on our terms and conditions, etc. [Main Clients / Business History (domestic)] Past deliveries: INAX, Seiko Epson, Sony, Sony EMCS, Denso, Nikon, Brother Industries, Bridgestone, Yamaha, Kyocera, Koito Manufacturing, Toyo Tire & Rubber, Fuji Machine Manufacturing, Taitec, Mitsumi Electric, Roland DG, etc. [Main Clients / Business History (overseas)] Overseas sales of image processing adaptive devices: Taiwan, China, and the Philippines. [Exhibition History/Information] SME Expo Sougouten in Tokyo and Osaka; INTERNEPCON; International Technical Exhibition on Image Technology and Equipment; Messe Nagoya, and other domestic exhibitions; SEMICON China 2012; Industrial Automation Shenzhen; many joint exhibitions; SEMICON Japan 2013; INTERNEPCON 2014.
