About Us

Three decades of imaging applied to solving customer problems.

Videk's roots date back to the early 1970's as an Eastman Kodak engineering department. In 1985, Kodak launched Videk as a venture company, and shortly thereafter in 1986, the first vision systems were being manufactured for customers.
