Five new companies have adopted the Micro Four Thirds standard for their cameras.
Micro Four Thirds is a joint venture set up by Olympus and Panasonic in 2008, who worked together to promote the standard. Now, five companies have signed up to the standard and will be producing products that are compliant with the Micro Four Thirds system guidelines.
The five companies are Blackmagic Design Pty. Ltd., one of the world's leading innovators and manufacturers of creative video technology; JK Imaging Ltd., new representative for the world-famous "KODAK" branded cameras; PHOTRON LIMITED, the world's leading manufacturer of high speed digital imaging systems; SVS-VISTEK GmbH, an innovative company that develops professional machine vision components and systems and ViewPLUS Inc., a developer of advanced imaging-related equipment.
With the addition of exciting new products from these companies, the Micro Four Thirds lineup will become much more diverse, further increasing the potential of this advanced digital imaging system.
Olympus said: “As the company responsible for initiating both the Four Thirds System and Micro Four Thirds System standards, Olympus Imaging Corp. will continue to develop and enhance the product lineup for both standards to meet the diverse needs of our customers.”
