PerkinElmer's Xenon flash technology is now integrated by four of the five leading mobile phone manufacturers to enhance the performance of high-end mobile phone cameras. The Company anticipates generating revenue in excess of $20 million in the first half of 2008 from this high-growth market segment.
Xenon flash, which enables 100 to 150 times faster shutter speeds as compared with LED flash, is the preferred light source in virtually all consumer and professional camera applications. The intense, but short, light discharge freezes motion and provides clear, crisp photos even in low-light conditions without the need for brightness modification, contrast correction or image stabilization. As a result, mobile phone manufacturers can significantly enhance the performance and image quality provided by advanced mobile phone cameras.
