PRNewswire: OmniVision announces the OV12895, a PureCel Plus-S stacked-die sensor. The 12MP sensor leverages a 1.55um pixel and high-speed architecture aimed to consumer-grade drones, surveillance systems, and 360-degree action cameras.
"We are seeing rapid growth in the markets for consumer drones, surveillance systems, and 360-degree action cameras, in part due to the increasing demand for aerial photography and 4K-resolution panoramic videos in security and virtual reality applications. The 12-megapixel OV12895 aligns well with these consumer product segments because it strikes a balance between solid pixel performance and high resolution, in a widely used 1/2.3-inch optical format," said Kalairaja Chinnaveerappan, senior product marketing manager at OmniVision. "The OV12895 builds on our latest-generation PureCel Plus-S stacked-die architecture and has many desirable features for these applications."
PRNewswire: OmniVision announces latest addition to its PureCel image sensor line, the OV2732. Due to the OV2732's HDR mode, power efficiency and small dimensions, the sensor is suited for compact and ultra low-power surveillance devices.
"The industry is seeing a tremendous increase in demand for IoT-compatible home monitoring systems. Today, resolution at 720p is already considered a mainstream segment, and interests in ultra low-power and good low-light 1080p imaging solutions are now on the rise," said Chris Yiu, senior strategic marketing manager at OmniVision. "Available in a 1/4-inch optical format, the OV2732 sets itself apart by delivering crisp 1080p HD video with advanced features such as frame synchronization and staggered HDR within a cost-effective and power efficient package. It's truly a no-compromise imaging solution for the security market."
Both sensors are currently available for sampling, and are expected to enter volume production in Q1 2017.
