First Wearable Device Released Containing CML Licensed Technology

Tuesday, August 15th 2017

CML is pleased to report the first use of its licensed SMA technology in a ‘wearable’ product.  The Front Row wearable camera, launched today, contains CML’s unique patented shape memory alloy actuator technology.  CML’s technology has been used to provide Optical Image Stabilisation (OIS), removing the effects of handshake to give a significant improvement in the quality of image.

Analysts expect miniature cameras to feature in an increasing number of wearable devices and the market to grow rapidly. CML’s SMA technology is ideal for applications that require small, lightweight and precise actuation in a high value, low cost package and is therefore ideally suited for use in the wearables market.
