New Imaging Technologies announced release of its NSC1005 HD Ready sensor operating in 720p mode.
The NSC1005 has 1280x720 pixels of 5.6um size, with microlenses and/or color bayer filters. NSC1005 operates in rolling shutter mode up to a frame rate of 60fps. NIT's Native WDR technology is said to provide an instantaneous DR of more than 140dB, a logarithmic response of the signal. A custom de-bayerisation algorithm is available upon request from NIT in order to operate in the logarithmic response domain.
