How we helped a client revolutionize
skin imaging solutions

customer expectations

The customer, a leading healthcare expert, wanted a compact and high-quality camera for skin imaging, which is then analyzed by their diagnostic software to autonomously detect skin cancer. The camera needed to capture video and images from a graphical UI and ensure a hassle-free experience for the physician.
