Contrast is a leader in optical design and analysis, from extensive OpticStudio 16.5™ (formerly Zemax) knowledge and capabilities, to an image splitting process that is being used in producing HDR video for real-time streaming applications such as surveillance and video conferencing. Our designs are thoughtfully analyzed, and meticulously tested and adjusted prior to lens fabrication.
We are proud to offer the following services for Optical Design and Analysis:
- OpticStudio 16.5, Optical Design and Analysis
- Custom Imaging and Relay Lens Systems
- Complex Image Splitting for Hybrid Systems
OpticStudio 16.5 optical design software is the premier design tool for optical designers around the world. Contrast principal Mike Tocci has extensive experience with OpticStudio 16.5, and has authored many OpticStudio 16.5 (formerly Zemax) Knowledge Base articles (hyperlink to articles) on topics such as stray light, off-axis parabola mirrors and modeling the human eye.
Contrast recognizes that while there are a number of prefabricated lens options on the market today, more often than not, the opportunity for customization is essential to meet the increasingly demanding and specific needs of lens design. We have the ability to design imaging systems for a diverse amount of applications, such as telescopes, cameras, night-vision scopes, microscopes, viewfinders and many more. Some examples of our custom lens systems are provided below:
