Digitimes: Taiwan-based DRAM vendor Etron announces that its single-chip 3D stereo gesture recognition image processor, the eSP870, which will be shipped to a China-based TV maker starting July.
The eSP870 single-chip image processor plus two CMOS sensor chips are incorporated into one module enabling both the left and right lens to capture images at a rate of more than 30fps, Etron said. The solution also comes with a built-in 3D depth sensing controller, designed ideally for somatosensory games, Etron indicated. Etron also expects to enter the supply chain of China's white-box games console market with its single-chip 3D camera modules. Other applications such as notebooks, tablets and car electronics could demand the function of somatosensory interactive games in the future, the company said.
