CMOS camera Module

Since the establishment of its business entity of CCM business unit in 2012, O-film has been focusing on the development and manufacturing of image modules. In just four years, it has become the largest manufacturer of image modules in the world, and the gap with other module manufacturers has expanded year by year. According to the market research firm TSR, the market share of O-film’s image module shipments will exceed 20% in 2018, ranking first of the industry.

As one of the few outstanding enterprises in China with core intellectual property rights and core competitiveness in the mobile internet industry, O-film adheres to Research and Development-oriented, and spends more than five percent of its operation revenue for R&D every year. At present, O-film has built a multi-technology, multi-level and cross-platform R&D system to further lay out frontier areas such as 3D image, AR/VR, autopilot, and biometrics, and set up research centers in San Jose, Tokyo, Suwon, Taipei and other places to obtain local high-quality technical talent resources and cutting-edge scientific and technological information, industrial information, and integrate global resources to lead the industry.

In the field of CCM, O-film has vigorously developed the transformation of production automation and the research and development of high-end modules. It has become the manufacturer with the highest automation rate of production in the industry, effectively enhancing the manufacturing strength of image modules, which accounted for a rapid increase in dual-camera and triple-camera module shipments and the share of flagship phone models of major domestic customers has continued to increase. Through the acquisition of Sony Electronics Huanan Co., Ltd., O-film's image module business has successfully entered the international major customer supply chain system, and had access to a number of core patent technologies, and further strengthened the industrial chain advantage in the fields of software and algorithm. On the basis of consolidating the high-end camera module business, the company actively expanding its business and increase market share by leveraging the advantages of the platform. Currently, in the field of CCM business, O-film has established long-term stable cooperative relations with well-known enterprises such as Huawei, Xiaomi, OPPO and Vivo, and maintained timely and efficient interaction, laid the company in the rank of mainstream suppliers of image modules and other products. In the future, O-film will further deepen and expand cooperation with its key customers, and provide a solid guarantee for the stable and continuous growth of the company's production and technical capabilities.
