Teleca partner Hasselblad in development of new camera system

Teleca partner Hasselblad in development of new camera system Victor Hasselblad AB has contracted Teleca for the development of a new camera system. The assignment involved electronics design and the development of embedded software as well as integration and testing. The new camera system, called the H-system, will further strengthen Hasselblad's position as a leading supplier of cameras for professionals. It uses the picture format 645 and incorporates modern camera technology such as auto focus, automatic exposure and motor operated functions. The new camera addresses professional photographers, within film and digital photography, where the need for fast handheld photography dominates, for example within the fashion industry, wedding photography, sports and news. Hasselblad also expects huge interest from advanced amateur photographers. For compatibility with future products the H-System is built modularly. The new camera system contains a completely new platform concerning control and communication built on a standard electrical interface, databus communication (I2C) and a programmable user interface similar the one used in mobile telephones. R&D Manager Lars Pappila at Hasselblad is very pleased that one of Sweden's most complex commercial projects has resulted in the introduction of the H-System. To Hasselblad the launch of the new camera system is the biggest product event since the classic Hasselblad system was introduced in 1948. "Teleca's engineering expertise combined with their passion and commitment have made them an ideal partner for us for the development of our new camera system", says Lars Pappila. "We are very pleased that Hasselblad chose Teleca for the complex technical development of their new camera system.
