Thousands of Camera Installations Worldwide

Welcome to Qtechnology

We design and manufacture intelligent smart cameras and vision integrations. Our solutions are tailored to fit each clients’ specific needs based on experience from many different industries. We have built a portfolio of modular camera platforms CPU, GPU, FPGA with an increasing range of fitting sensor heads with CCD, CMOS, Scientific CMOS, thermal microbolometer and hyperspectral solutions, etc.

With thousands of smart cameras installed in industrial installations worldwide, we understand the requirements in terms of quality and reliability to keep factories running 24/7.

However, we do acknowledge that nothing lasts forever, especially in harsh industrial environments. Consequently, we realise the importance of deliverability and accessibility of spare parts – even several years after release. This is also taken into consideration when selecting parts and developing new designs. Hence, when our customers’ system parts become obsolete, we are frequently performing seamless swaps for new advanced parts.

Qtechnology is a synonym of innovation and openness. We are a big player in the open source ecosystem with contributions in all the stacks. Even if you have not tried our products you are already using our software on your phone, browser or cloud provider. More than 1000 patches on the Linux kernel, Gstreamer, and OpenCV, among others, prove our devotion to Open Source.

Qtechnology also keeps a close relation to Newtec A/S with whom we are sharing R&D facilities with state-of-the-art in-house laboratories.

In our R&D facilities, we also work in close collaborations with national and international researchers, scientists, universities and Ph.D. students to identify new developments and insights within areas such as material science, next-generation optics, and Artificial Intelligence (AI).

Introduce Yourself (Example Post)

This is an example post, originally published as part of Blogging University. Enroll in one of our ten programs, and start your blog right.

You’re going to publish a post today. Don’t worry about how your blog looks. Don’t worry if you haven’t given it a name yet, or you’re feeling overwhelmed. Just click the “New Post” button, and tell us why you’re here.

Why do this?

  • Because it gives new readers context. What are you about? Why should they read your blog?
  • Because it will help you focus your own ideas about your blog and what you’d like to do with it.

The post can be short or long, a personal intro to your life or a bloggy mission statement, a manifesto for the future or a simple outline of your the types of things you hope to publish.

To help you get started, here are a few questions:

  • Why are you blogging publicly, rather than keeping a personal journal?
  • What topics do you think you’ll write about?
  • Who would you love to connect with via your blog?
  • If you blog successfully throughout the next year, what would you hope to have accomplished?

You’re not locked into any of this; one of the wonderful things about blogs is how they constantly evolve as we learn, grow, and interact with one another — but it’s good to know where and why you started, and articulating your goals may just give you a few other post ideas.

Can’t think how to get started? Just write the first thing that pops into your head. Anne Lamott, author of a book on writing we love, says that you need to give yourself permission to write a “crappy first draft”. Anne makes a great point — just start writing, and worry about editing it later.

When you’re ready to publish, give your post three to five tags that describe your blog’s focus — writing, photography, fiction, parenting, food, cars, movies, sports, whatever. These tags will help others who care about your topics find you in the Reader. Make sure one of the tags is “zerotohero,” so other new bloggers can find you, too.

Our Vision

We want to be the preferred provider of advanced smart cameras solutions across industries and research projects.

Our Mission

We cultivate customer integration and strive to tailor a cutting-edge vision solution for each client.

Our Core Values

Our History

Qtechnology A/S is a privately held company, located in Valby, district of Copenhagen, Denmark.

In the late 90s, Newtec Engineering A/S and Kristian Glode Madsen started cooperating on the implementation of vision systems for optical grading of vegetables. However, as Newtec started demanding integration of additional intelligence into their machines, through various camera techniques, they were unable to find any companies capable of meeting their specific requirements. More specifically, Newtec needed a novel intelligent camera solution with a high frame rate and high processing that complied with the increasing demand for high throughput in industrial sorting. To develop a state-of-the-art vision solution meeting these requirements, Qtechnology A/S was founded by Kristian Glode Madsen, CEO, and Newtec Holding in May 2007, as a subsidiary of Newtec.

The first step for Qtechnology was to integrate image processing in the camera – in a so-called smart camera – as latency due to transport of images over wires would be too high and unable to comply with throughput requirements from the industry. For vegetable sorting color accuracy is very crucial, so 3CCD cameras were used in previous solutions. However, to bring the processing close enough to the image capture, a new 3CCD camera was designed and integrated with the image processing platform. The first solution to be implemented in an optical sorter was released in 2010, which was able to increase the throughput of the machines with up to 25% and had a lower failure rate. Everything was integrated into a single camera reducing the external electronics to a simple host PC.

Smart cameras, Qtechnology, history

Qtechnology has since delivered thousands of cameras for industrial installations in different industries worldwide and continued the development of new cameras with novel sensor technology, enabling the supply of cutting-edge smart camera solutions for new industrial vision systems and R&D projects. We have expanded into a range of different industries, where we among others have developed applications for the finance, food, healthcare, manufacturing, and scientific research industries. Most recently, in 2018, we also moved into the sport & entertainment industry with an innovative camera solution for automated sports streaming.

If you also consider our assistance in the development of your next smart camera application and you, let us get in contact and discuss your next project.
