About us

Pacific has been established for more than 30 years and is your specialist for reliable high quality cameras.

Founded in Osaka, Japan in 1978, the headquarters was moved to Ebisu/Tokyo in 1985 and in 1992 the present headquarters building was completed.

December 1996 saw the completion of a dedicated Research & Development (R&D) centre at Hakone, to ensure all board cameras are designed and engineered using cutting edge technology. In end 1998, Pacific Corp received approval for EMC testing by AVI (AIB Vinçotte) on the test labs, making the company one of the first in Japan capable of issuing full CE approval on its products including its unique range of board cameras.

The European Marketing Office was established in Brussels, the heart of Europe, in 1996 In February 1999, the new main production plant was completed in Kawasaki, Japan, enabling production of up to 2,000 board cameras each working day and maintaining Pacific’s position as the largest producer of board cameras in Japan. Sales in excess of 2.5 billion Japanese Yen are achieved with the aid of a network of offices in New York, Los Angeles, Sao Paulo, Shanghai, Hong Kong, Milan, Brussels, London and Sydney.


Pacific Corporation developed in 1987 the world’s first CCD board camera.

As well as offering a range of finished products, Pacific is well known for its high quality and reliable PCB cameras. Attention to detail is paramount, verified by three lines of quality control on the board camera production line. The philosophy of the company is to build to a specification with a price in mind, rather than to target sales based on price alone, and for this reason the customer base is made up largely of OEM users building high value finished items and distributors with a wide range of quality products.

Sales administration and support for all board cameras and related products can be offered locally in each country with the backup of detailed technical support by qualified engineers trained in the Japanese factories. In addition, special projects can be evaluated and realised with many OEM customers detailing their own customised products to application specifications.

At Pacific Corporation Europe we can inform and advise you on solutions for your requirements, and there is no minimum order quantity. We also offer a full stock of sample products at discount prices for evaluation purposes.

You can be sure that within our comprehensive range you will find the camera for your precise needs and applications, whether your requirement is for monochrome or colour in high, standard or full HD resolution, with a 1/3’’ or 1/ 4’’ CCD sensor.
