Opus is the manufacturer of the Osiris camera which the Board of SDI believes is the first camera for infrared reflectography to provide high resolution high speed images in a small portable camera. The Osiris cameras have been used predominately in art galleries and museums around the world to examine numerous works of art including work by artists such as Leonardo da Vinci, Rembrandt and Watteau. The Board of SDI believes that the Osiris cameras will enhance SDI’s current product offering and intends to explore further applications for the technology beyond its current use.

To facilitate the acquisition of Opus, SDI has entered into a software licence with Silfensoft Limited

Ken Ford, Chairman of SDI, commented: “This is an exciting acquisition for SDI and we plan to explore further applications for the infrared imaging system beyond art restoration. We believe that the Osiris camera unit will complement SDI’s existing portfolio of high specification and performance Atik and Artemis cameras and we expect it to be earnings enhancing in the next financial year.”
