Allied Vision, vendor of machine vision cameras, confirms Sony plans to stop CCD production. Michael Cyros, Chief Commercial Officer of the company, says in an interview: "Many in the industry had expected this to happen sooner or later. As you know, CMOS sensors have become more and more popular in the last couple of years. With greatly improved image quality, sensitivity, dynamic range and speeds, they have outpaced CCD technology of late. Sony’s decision is a logical step in that context to provide further capacity for CMOS growth."
