Sony has developed "Super 35mm equivalent" CMOS sensor for the professional Digital Cinema camcorder line. The "Super 35mm" array size is stated as 1.7-inch type, with diagonal of 27.1mm. The sensor is capable to deliver 1080p60 HD video and relies on column-parallel ADC architecture. Its pixel size is said to be 4 times bigger than that of DSLRs providing SNR of 63dB.
This is the first time Sony's digital cinema line uses CMOS image sensor. The previous generations relied on CCDs.
