OmniVision first image sensor OV64A with larger pixels of 1.0 μm, 8K Resolution in Real-Time
This year, OmniVision has already released two 64-megapixel sensors for smartphones – OV64B (with a pixel size of 0.7 microns) and OV64C (with a pixel size of 0.8 microns). Now the company has introduced another sensor called OV64A with larger pixels of 1 μm.
According to the company, the larger pixels of the new OmniVision OV64A are 60% more sensitive to light than the 0.8 μm pixels. Large pixels and high-resolution OV64A provide “excellent low light performance.”
Among the advantages of OV64A is the ability to receive 64-megapixel images or video in 8K resolution in real-time, support for HDR with triple exposure, the combination of the four-cell signal, and a built-in summation and tone display mechanism.
In addition to 8K, the OV64A sensor supports 4K video at 120 frames per second with electronic image stabilization, and also offers 1080p / 240 and 720/480 modes. Mass production of the OV64A is expected to begin by the end of this year.
