PRNewswire: eWBM launches the DR1152 depth map processor, the successor to the DR1151 dual aperture processor.
The DR1152's predecessor, DR1151 (announced last year), accomplished cost reduction in the depth map processor market by implementing Dual Aperture's 4-color 3D image solution technology which extracts RGB and IR signals from a single image sensor. The DR1152 increases its depth level to 121 (nearly 8 times compared to the predecessor). Unlike the predecessor, which works only with 4-color sensors, the DR1152 now supports both 4-color and 3-color image sensors. eWBM believes that the 3-color adaptation opens a new market sector since it removes the barrier of sourcing only 4-color image sensors. This will expedite time-to-market significantly since widely available image sensors can be bought off the self.
The DR1152 supports a depth image resolution of up to XGA (1024 x 768) at 30 fps or 60 fps at VGA resolution. The technologies such as blur channel depth combining, noise reduction, and edge thinning technology are included in the new product. With all these significant improvement, DR1152 contains less gate count compared to its predecessor.
