OmniVision Launches Native 16:9 10.5-Megapixel RGBC Camera Solution For Smartphones And Tablets

SANTA CLARA, Calif., Aug. 1, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- OmniVision Technologies, Inc. (NASDAQ: OVTI), a leading developer of advanced digital imaging solutions, today announced a complete 10.5-megapixel camera solution with a new RGB Clear (RGBC) color filter that delivers exceptional low-light performance. The camera solution is composed of a native 16:9 OV10820 sensor that offers 4K2K and 1080p full high definition (FHD) video, and a new OV660 companion chip that converts the RGBC data into standard RGB Bayer data. The combination of the OV10820 and OV660 provides an ultra-compact, complete high performance camera solution for next-generation smartphones and tablets.

"The inherent tradeoff between smaller pixels and improved sensitivity or image quality continues to drive innovation. The OV10820 delivers the best of both worlds: 10.5-megapixel high resolution imaging with unparalleled low-light sensitivity from RGBC in a compact footprint," said Devang Patel, senior product marketing manager at OmniVision. "The sensor offers 4K2K and fast frame rate FHD video in a native 16:9 aspect ratio, addressing the need to capture video for increasingly popular widescreen mobile displays and next-generation TVs with extremely high resolutions. Furthermore, the OV660 companion chip converts the RGBC data into RGB Bayer format, allowing manufacturers to integrate the camera solution with standard ISPs."

The 1/2.6-inch OV10820 utilizes a 1.4-micron OmniBSI-2™ pixel architecture with a RGBC color filter pattern to deliver exceptional low-light sensitivity, enabling high quality video recording in difficult lighting conditions. It records full-resolution 10.5-megapixel video at 30 frames per second (FPS), and supports 4K2K (3840 x 2160 pixels) at 30 FPS and 1080p FHD video at 60 FPS while maintaining full field of view (FOV) with binning functionality for RAW output. The OV10820 fits in a camera module form factor of 9.5 x 9.5 x 6.4 mm, which includes auto focus functionality.
