PCO's success story began in the 1980s with a research project conducted by the company's founder Dr. Emil Ott, who was at the time Chair of Technical Electrophysics at the Technical University of Munich. By using an intensified slow scan camera, Dr. Ott put forward a persuasive argument that the technology available on the market was in many cases not adequate for scientific use. In 1987, he founded PCO with the declared goal of eliminating any existing shortcomings and taking camera technology to the next evolutionary phase. Supported by a small team, he set about implementing his ambitious plan – developing a completely new image-intensifying camera. Even in this early phase, he focused on innovative technologies and processes which were to prove groundbreaking for subsequent developments and define the standard for new camera products to this day.
