Master the light: an insight into the cooperation between vivo and ZEISS

Learn how the in vivo ZEISS imaging laboratory sets new standards in the field of smartphone photography.

  • Providing professional results by setting a demanding testing regime and the highest standards from the very beginning
  • The use of an advanced design process using the “digital twin” technique and a professional lens coating brings revolutionary performance

Vivo and ZEISS have joined forces to set professional standards for photography in the world of smartphones. Through the revolutionary ZEISS vivo imaging laboratory, companies are setting new standards for smartphone photography by developing new vivo devices, using advanced optical design and professional quality standards. But what standard do smartphones have to meet in order to have the prestigious ZEISS logo on them? Take a peek behind the scenes at the vivo ZEISS Imaging Lab, a unique collaboration that transforms imaging with smartphones and helps vivo users make the perfect shot.

How these two companies are changing the game:

  • “Digital Twins” brings professional image design

The undisputed reputation of ZEISS lenses for almost two centuries is based on innovations in optical design to control optical challenges such as glare, distortion, color refraction and distortion. In addition to vivo, ZEISS brings the same advanced techniques for developing vivo flagship recording systems, such as the X-Series. Techniques include prototyping new lens designs using “digital twins” – a technique developed by ZEISS to design high-end photo and cinema lenses. The design of the new vivo lenses is designed virtually to accurately simulate and test the performance of flagship devices, ensuring that new camera systems can be quickly prototyped and further refined. The results of this are reflected in outstanding photographs with higher resolution, contrast and less reflection.

  • Advanced lens technologies that create great photos

For unrivaled image quality, even microscopic factors can make a huge difference. With a nano structure that is more than a hundred times smaller than a grain of sand, the leading ZEISS certified T * coating is an advanced solution that makes the glare on the glass surface of the lens virtually invisible. It is commonly used to reduce reflection on professional lenses for flawless clarity, contrast and quality. vivo has implemented T * coating in the design of its flagship devices, which has passed the ZEISS certification process.

  • The highest standards from day one

In partnership with ZEISS, the focus on excellence starts from day one. With its strict standards of production quality management, vivo has shown that it meets the high standards set by ZEISS – standards as a prerequisite for creating a vivo and ZEISS partnership in 2020. With the development of each product, high standards are redefined from the outset: vivo and ZEISS together define quality goals and determine optical design through extensive simulation processes to ensure outstanding performance. Performance criteria for optical design include MTF optical performance measures and targets for minimal shading and color deviation.

  • Demanding professional standards ensure a perfect shot

When using an in vivo flagship device, the difference in images is easy to see. However, behind every great shot lies the demanding process of quality assurance and in vivo testing by the ZEISS imaging laboratory. To meet the stringent standards set by both companies, each new device must exceed more than 20 different image quality parameters, with up to 150 different camera modules tested and over 5,000 test images for each new device to ensure consistent flawless results.

  • The magic of classic photography on vafor this phone call

A perfect image is not only made of technical quality – it has a certain power to awaken our emotions. That’s why vivo and ZEISS have worked together to give the unsurpassed character of classic ZEISS lenses the smartphone experience, creating a distinctive “bokeh” depth-of-field effect with professional lenses through advanced computing techniques. Combining the expertise of vivo engineers and knowledge of ZEISS optical design, the research and development team has created ways to accurately replicate the look of legendary ZEISS portrait lenses on flagship vivo devices.
