Omnivision Announces 4MP/90fps 2um Pixel HDR Sensor

PR Newswire: Omnivision announces the OV4689, a 4MP SOC sensor in a native 16:9 format for surveillance and security applications. Built on the 2um OmniBSI-2 pixel architecture, the OV4689 captures full-resolution 4-megapixel HD video at 90fps, 1080p HD at 120fps with electronic image stabilization (EIS), and 720p HD at 180fps. The OV4689's line-based staggered HDR ensures smooth motion capture under extreme variations of bright and dark conditions. Furthermore, the sensor's narrow CRA has been optimized specifically for security and surveillance applications.

"The OV4689 comes to market at a time when security and surveillance camera systems are transitioning from analog CCTV to high quality digital solutions," said Hasan Gadjali, VP of worldwide marketing and business development at OmniVision. "With its best-in-class low-light sensitivity, HDR and OmniBSI-2 pixel performance, the OV4689 sets a new benchmark in digital imaging for IP and security cameras. It is designed to meet customers' desire for higher resolution image capturing in the standard 1/3-inch optical size, while also providing superior low-light performance."

The 1/3-inch OV4689 is available in a 6.6 x 5.8 mm CSP package. It is currently being sampled and is expected to enter mass production in Q1 2014.

  1. Did I miss something or the DR of this HDR sensor is only 64.6 dB?

    1. Pretty sure that is the Dynamic range is non-HDR mode (Full well/noise floor). Add about 18dB for HDR mode assuming 8x exposure ratio between long and short lines.

  3. Looks like the sensor can generate long/short exposure data, but the backend processor has to generate the HDR image. Maybe better to call this an "HDR-capable" sensor.
