OmniVision and MStar Partner on Imaging Apps With IR Processing

BEIJING --- OmniVision Technologies, Inc., a leading developer of advanced digital imaging solutions, today announced that the company's second-generation RGB-Ir image sensors, the OV9756 and the OV4686, will be supported by MStar's new on-chip image signal processor, the MSC318. The MSC318 is designed for security IP camera solutions and for driving recorder video cameras in automotive imaging applications. OmniVision's OV9756 and OV4686 were selected for their advanced infrared sensitivity to produce excellent videos in all lighting conditions in an ultra-compact industrial design.

OV9756 and OV4686 Specifications

OmniVision's 1/3-inch OV9756 and OV4686 leverage a 4x4 advanced color pixel array pattern with special dual-band color filters to enhance the lens system, capturing infrared images with minimal color aliasing. Compared with sensors using traditional mechanical infrared filters, field reliability and system operation power conservation can be greatly enhanced.

The OV9756 leverages OmniVision's 3.75-micron OmniPixel3-HS™ high-sensitivity pixel architecture to operate in extremely high- and low-light conditions, delivering full-resolution 720p video at 60 frames per second (FPS). Built on a 2-micron OmniBSI-2™ pixel, the OV4686 captures full-resolution 1080p high-definition (HD) video at 120 FPS and 4MP video at 90 FPS.

The MSC318 is currently available in China. Find out more at:
