PRNewswire: OmniVision announces the OV2736, a 2um RGB-Ir PureCel sensor that is capable of capturing high-quality 1080p60 video with HDR. According to a report by Reportlinker, the home security solutions market is expected to be a $74.28 billion global market by 2025, increasing at a CAGR of 9.1% over the next decade.
"The capabilities of commercial and consumer security cameras are quickly converging due to the rapid development of low-light imaging technologies," said Chris Yiu. "As a pioneer of RGB-Ir and HDR technology, with numerous products equipped with these technologies already deployed in the market, OmniVision is proud to bring the OV2736 to no-compromise home surveillance systems."
Rather than a traditional mechanical IR filter, cameras built on the OV2736 utilize dual-band color filters to deliver image with IR LED ullumination. The sensor has ¼-inch optical format and 110 mW power consumption.
The OV2736 is currently available for sampling and is expected to enter volume production in Q3 2017.
