ON Semi: ARRI (Arnold & Richter Cine Technik) has been awarded the “Technology and Engineering Emmy Award” from the National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences for improvements in large format CMOS image sensors. When accepting the award, ARRI’s Managing Director Franz Kraus specifically thanked ON Semiconductor for its contribution as a partner in the product development.
"ARRI and ON Semiconductor have had a strong and collaborative relationship in the areas of product development and manufacturing for almost a decade," said Franz Kraus. "The design expertise and innovative sensor technology ON Semiconductor brought to this project, coupled with their consistent manufacturing quality and reliable worldwide supply chain network make them a valued partner to have in the highly demanding motion picture equipment marketplace."
"ON Semiconductor designed the ALEV III CMOS Image Sensor specifically for ARRI – utilizing our state-of-the-art imaging technology that resulted in a sensor design featuring a 14-bit true dynamic range in combination with 8 Mpixel resolution at 120 full frames per second," said Bob Klosterboer, SVP at ON Semi. "Working collaboratively with the team at ARRI, we successfully delivered a remarkable product that combines excellent noise performance with high image resolution and increased frame rate to enable precise slow motion image capture. Our congratulations go out to ARRI for their Emmy award."
