The sensor’s high speed enables 1080p/30 HD video with simultaneous still 8MP capturing and rapid context switching which also removes shutter lag when the sensor switches between a low-power preview mode and a full resolution still image. The full operating power is 400mW. Additionally, the AR0833 is HDR ready for still and video applications when coupled with an HDR processor.
The AR0833 is currently sampling and will be available in mass production in Q2 2012. Available as a stand-alone sensor for OEMs and manufacturers who have their own ISP, it is also available with Aptina’s imaging co-processor for a fully tuned, complete camera solution enabling quick integration and delivery of new designs to market.
In a separate announcement Aptina lists the technologies it's going to demo at 2012 Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, Spain from Feb. 27 – March 1, 2012:
- 1.4um BSI and 1.1um BSI pixels
- The latest developments in HDR, 3D depth sensing, and other future technologies
- Advancements for full HD videoconferencing sensors
