Business Profile

What motivates us

Many processes run so fast or are barely visible to the human eye and so we fail to see the detail. But progress lies close to our hearts, and so Optronis has dedicated itself to addressing this problem since 1986. We are passionate about creating ways of making ultra-fast processes visible so that industry, science and research arrive at the best solutions faster and to greater effect.

We have been working in the field of ultra-fast optical measuring systems since the very beginning. Optronis has its roots in the company ARP (Applications of Research in Photonics) which was founded in France in 1986. ARP industrialized prototypes of streak cameras that had been developed at the CNRS (Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique) in Strasbourg. We have been drawing on the resulting know-how for the CamRecord slow-motion cameras for many years, and now similarly for the high-performance CamPerform Machine Vision cameras in the last few years. We use the expertise we have accumulated for our high-speed cameras to drive forward progress in industry. With the help of high-speed cameras as precision technical instruments, processes which are invisible to the human eye can be analyzed – and ultimately optimized.


Optronis GmbH is an owner-managed company which aims to provide high-quality cameras for industry, science and research and to record high-speed operations. These are fast machine vision cameras, streak cameras and slow-motion cameras. These products are developed, manufactured and marketed by Optronis, and are designed for industrial applications and for basic research.
