Business Wire: One more time Toshiba announces a full HD (1080p60) 1/3-inch image sensor for the security/surveillance and automotive markets featuring 2.7um pixel, HDR and color noise reduction (CNR). According to the company, the new TCM5117PL has an industry-leading DR of 100dB. The output data format is 10b in normal mode or 12b in HDR mode.
Toshiba's single-frame, alternate-row, dual-exposure HDR implementation in the TCM5117PL is said to be well suited for capturing fast-moving objects compared to conventional multi-frame systems. With frame rates at 30 fps for conventional multi-frame systems, the single-frame approach, at 60 fps, promotes faster, less blurry and higher-quality images especially in high-contrast light conditions.
