Panoramic Camera Manufacturer Scallop Spin Out / Reboots

Author: John Honovich, Published on Feb 18, 2014

"Anyone else besides Arecont?" People want multi-imager panoramic cameras, but there are surprisingly few choices beyond Arecont.

5 years ago, Scallop Imaging launched a promising multi-imager panoramic camera in a super small form factor.

Even today, there is nothing quite like it, but the company never seemed to gain significant traction.

Now, Scallop has been spun out and given a new chance with infused capital. In this note, we share our findings from speaking to their new CEO and our projections about what potential they have.
