Omnivision Announces 2nd Generation RGB-IR Sensors

PRNewswire: OmniVision announces the OV4686 and OV9756, two 1/3-inch RGB-Ir sensors that support dual band color filters instead of traditional mechanical rotary IR filters. Leveraging an innovative color array pattern, the OV4686 and OV9756 can capture high quality infrared images and video, even from long ranges, and bring superior color aliasing performance compared to previous generation offerings.

"Maintaining high quality images and color accuracy as lighting conditions change throughout the day is an essential capability for image sensors geared towards the security marketplace," said Chris Yiu, senior marketing manager at OmniVision. "By utilizing our second-generation RGB-Ir dual color band filter, the OV4686 and OV9756 sensors deliver excellent color performance and infrared imaging in a compact form factor well-suited for commercial and consumer applications such as smart doorbells and other IoT camera systems."

Built on a 2um OmniBSI-2 pixel, the OV4686 captures 1080p120 and 720p180 video. The OV9756 is based on 3.75um OmniPixel3-HS pixel and delivers 720p60 video. It also features low-power mode with system wake-up trigger functionality.

The OV4686 and OV9756 sensors are currently available for sampling and are expected to enter volume production in Q2 2016.

  1. No details on QE/color response of the RGB-IR filters. With no NIR cut filter, what's the bleed of the organic RGB filters into the NIR? Or are they using metal based filters without this issue?
