As a native 16:9 sensor, the OV10822 offers instant transition between video and image capture modes to capture still images while simultaneously recording HD video without any change in FOV. The 1/2.6-inch OV10822 utilizes 1.4um OmniBSI-2 pixel with improved high- and low-light performance, as well as alternate row HDR functionality. It records full-resolution 10.5MP (4320 x 2432 pixels) video at 30fps, as well as 4K2K (3840 x 2160 pixels) at 30fps with full horizontal FOV.

The OV10822 features 4-lane MIPI interface, and fits into a camera module of 10 x 10 x 6.5 mm. With advancements in lens designs and autofocus actuator technology, the OV10822 will soon be fitting into camera modules that are under 6 mm in height. The OV10822 is currently available for sampling and is expected to enter volume production in Q1 2014.
