Orbbec introduces Femto Time-of-Flight 3D Camera line

Jun 22, 2022 — by Giorgio Mendoza 2,414 views

Following the introduction of the Persee+ 3D embedded camera in April 2022, Orbbec has released a complete new line of 3D cameras optimized to capture static or moving objects and scenes with superior accuracy. The company ensured the Femto ToF 3D cameras are enabled to be used in applications including healthcare, robotics, augmented reality and more.

Orbbec’s new Femto line consists of three models, the Femto (standard), the Femto W and the Femto Live. All models share a similar design as seen in the image below.

The similarities between these cameras include the Depth Resolution (640×480 @ 30FPS), 6-axis IMU onboard for position sensing and a depth engine used to release large volumes of computing power to the host PC.

Orbbec also stated that all models work in complete dark environments and provide multi-camera synchronization support with near-zero latency.

The Femto and the Femto W offer the largest optical range (0.2 to 5 meters), while the Femto W and the Femto Live provide the highest color resolution (up to 3840 x 2160 @30FPS). Furthermore, the Femto W supports the widest depth field of view (H90, V74, D103).
