The OV8858 supports an active array of 3264 x 2448 pixels (8-megapixel) operating at 30 frames per second (FPS) for zero shutter lag to enable high-speed photography. The sensor is capable of recording 1080p high definition (HD) video at 60 FPS, or 720p HD video at 90 FPS, each with additional pixels for electronic image stabilization (EIS). The OV8858, when paired with OmniVision's latest 2-megapixel sensors, can provide full resolution ViV snapshot images at 15 FPS and preview ViV video at 30 FPS.
The OV8858 fits into an 8.5 x 8.5 mm camera module with a build height of approximately 4 mm. It is currently available for sampling and is expected to begin volume production in the second quarter of 2014.
