Omnivision Announce High Performance 4-Megapixel CameraChip Sensor For Next-Gen Video Applications
OmniVision announce the launch of the OV4688, a 4-megapixel CameraChip? sensor in a native 16:9 high definition format, designed to deliver ultra high quality, fast frame rate HD video and photography for mobile applications. Built on a new 2-micron OmniBSI-2? pixel, the OV4688 offers dramatically increased low-light sensitivity along with high dynamic range, and can capture full-resolution video and photography at 90 frames per second with zero shutter lag.
Today's video-centric imaging applications demand higher resolutions and faster frame rates with better image quality and sensitivity, even under the most challenging lighting conditions, said Vinoo Margasahayam, director of product marketing at OmniVision. The OV4688¹s new 2-micron OmniBSI-2 pixel delivers 40 percent higher sensitivity when compared to the 1.75-micron OmniBSI-2 pixel. This improvement combined with the ability to run full-resolution 4-megapixel video at 90 FPS makes the OV4688 a highly attractive camera solution for video-centric applications.

The 1/3-inch low-power OV4688 captures full-resolution 4-megapixel HD video at 90 FPS, 1080p HD at 120 FPS with electronic image stabilization, and 720p HD at 180 FPS. The sensor¹s fast frame rate enables additional key features, including full-resolution continuous frame capture or burst photography where multiple frames are captured in rapid succession, and recording high-quality slow-motion videos, providing end-users with an extremely dynamic video-capture experience using common mobile devices.

The OV4688 features a high-speed 4-lane MIPI serial output interface to facilitate the required high data transfer rate and fits into an 8.5 x 8.5 mm module with a z-height of less than 6 mm. It is currently being sampled and is expected to enter mass production in the second quarter of 2013.
