Dynamax Imaging LLC is relocating its facility in Homer, Cortland County, to the College of Nanoscale Science and Engineering’s Smart System Technology and Commercialization Center of Excellence in Canandaigua, adding more than 100 local jobs over the next three to five years.

The company’s move brings the STC to full capacity.

The move was announced Monday by Gov. Andrew Cuomo.

“By tapping into the world-class, first-rate capabilities with the most advanced semiconductor equipment at CNSE’s STC, we look forward to advancing our innovative image sensor technologies, developing new products and establishing new partnerships, all of which will enable the company to grow and flourish, and maintain the reputation of New York as the ‘imaging capital of the world,” said Jim Tan, Dynamax Imaging’s president and CEO, in a statement.

Dynamax Imaging develops high-performance image sensors used in products ranging from HDTV camcorders and flat-panel displays in the consumer market, to imaging and biometrics technologies in the scientific sector, to security and surveillance systems for the military.

The company, which has operations in several countries, plans to install more than $3 million in high-tech equipment and establish more than 100 jobs at STC over the next three to five years.

The jobs include the location of the majority of its engineers, scientists and researchers from other U.S. locations to the Ontario County site this year, as well as the hiring of 30 to 50 cleanroom operator and technician positions to support the company’s research, prototyping and pilot production activities, the company said.

Dynamax Imaging was formed when the company acquired the assets of Panavision Imaging LLC’s CMOS image sensor business.
