At the recently concluded 2013 International CES, PrimeSense Ltd. had unveiled Capri 1.25, its latest embedded 3D sensor.

PrimeSense's breakthrough reference design utilises Capri – PrimeSense's next-generation of depth acquisition System on Chip (SoC), with improved algorithms including multi-modal 3D sensing techniques. Capri SoC together with the new Reference Design provides the most versatile 3D sensing platform available today, in the smallest form factor, making it ideal for embedding in consumer electronics devices such as PCs, All –in-One PCs, tablets, laptops, mobile phones, TVs, consumer robotics and more. Samples for development and integration for leading OEMs will be available by mid-2013.

"Using cutting-edge technologies, our newest generation of sensors is robust, accurate and affordable," said Inon Beracha, CEO, PrimeSense. "With a mind-blowing size reduction, Capri's size is about 10 times smaller than the PrimeSense's current generation of 3D sensors and it is certainly the smallest 3D sensor in the world. Capri is small enough to fit into today's smartphones while still providing the highest depth performance (short and long range). We see Capri adding depth sensing and natural interaction to numerous devices and markets, revolutionizing the user experience and usability in ways that no one could imagine until now."
