OmniVision Launches 1/3-Inch CameraChip Sensor with RGB-IR Color Filter for Advanced Security Applications

SANTA CLARA, CA -- OmniVision Technologies, Inc. introduces the OV9752, a new CameraChip sensor designed for next-generation security and home monitoring applications. The 1/3-inch OV9752 captures high definition (HD) images and video in 1280 x 960 pixel resolution as well as infrared information, providing excellent scene reproduction regardless of lighting conditions. These benefits make the OV9752 an ideal camera solution for security systems designed to record during day and night.

"The OV9752 uses an RGB-IR dual band color filter instead of the traditional mechanical rotary filter, which both simplifies the design and reduces the sensor footprint. This approach also allows the sensor to capture extremely high quality IR images and video, even from great distances," said Chris Yiu, senior strategic marketing manager at OmniVision. "Traditional security cameras' mechanical IR filters are major cause for security camera failures. By eliminating the need for such a mechanical filter, the OV9752 provides our customers with a more reliable and highly effective camera solution."

Built on the 3.75-micron OmniPixel3-HS™ pixel architecture, the OV9752 can capture excellent images and video in high, low, and "no" light environments, in either visible light or infrared. The sensors can capture in 1280 x 960 pixel resolution video at 60 frames per second (FPS) with 10-bit output, or at 45 FPS with 12-bit output. Additionally, the OV9752 features an ultra-low power mode, which allows the sensor to reduce the resolution and frame rates and operate at reduced power consumption.

The OV9752 fits into a 6.3 x 5.2 mm package. It is currently available for sampling and is expected to enter volume production in the fourth quarter of 2015.
