Aptina | Date:
Aptina introduced its new 1/3-inch native full high-definition (HD) 1080p30 video sensor with support for electronic image stabilization (EIS). The sensor uses a 2.2-micron pixel design integrating Aptina A-Pix technology that provides excellent low-light performance, supports parallel interface options and 2-lane MIPI output, giving camera designers more flexibility with image processing solutions. The cost-effective Aptina image sensor provides 3.2-megapixel still image captures, and stunning overall image and HD video quality for consumer pocket digital video (DV), camcorder, web, sports action and video conferencing and other camera applications.
The Aptina image sensor enables digital video camera designs at consumer price points, addressing the growing demand for high-quality HD video. “The Aptina image sensor offers a rich feature set together with excellent low-light performance and stunning overall video quality,” said Mr. Harry Peng, GM of TCL digital technology LTD. “We chose the Aptina image sensor because it will enable TCL to make a high performance camcorder to compete with much higher priced alternatives in the market today.”
Early responses from Aptina customers regarding the 2.2-micron pixel sensor are very favorable. Because of this performance, Aptina is able to provide customers with the high quality they are looking for in a digital video camera imaging sensor. “Vivid color rendering in daylight is imperative for HD video, and this is a strong Aptina image sensor advantage for our products to leverage,” said Terry Tang CEO of Skylight.
The Aptina image sensor is offered in a small form factor CSP package design (6.28mm x 6.65mm), allowing for the development of ultra compact digital video cameras.
