DigitalOptics' fast MEMS lens actuator enables Lytrolike postcapture refocus video

Tech shows like CES and MWC are great for taking a peek at what’s coming up in the world of consumer electronics, even down to the component level. At the latter show this year, we came across DigitalOptics whose name may not sound familiar, but you may already be using its HDR, red eye removal, face tracking, face beautification and other related technologies on many phones (like Oppo’s) and cameras (sorry, not allowed to name them here). Now, this year the company will also be offering its MEMS (microelectromechanical system) lens actuator, which claims to be faster (10ms settling time instead of 20 to 25ms), more reliable, longer lasting and more efficient than its traditional voice coil counterpart.
