OmniVision Provides Imaging Solutions for Mantis Vision's MV4D 3D Technology Platform for Mobile Devices
LAS VEGAS – OmniVision Technologies, Inc. (NASDAQ: OVTI), a leading developer of advanced digital imaging solutions, today announced from the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, that its OV7251 global shutter image sensor has been selected by Mantis Vision as one of the sensors intended for its next-generation 3D camera reference design, as part of its MV4D technology platform for mobile devices. OmniVision's OV7251, as a premier mobile-ready VGA image sensor with global shutter capabilities, will facilitate accurate 3D imaging and content creation for the MV4D technology platform.
"By developing our 3D mobile camera using OmniVision's OV7251 sensor, Mantis Vision's MV4D technology platform has taken a leap forward in meeting the demands of our partners with daylight operability, sub-mm data accuracies, and slim form-factor compatibility," said Gur Arie Bittan, CTO of Mantis Vision. "With OmniVision's support, we expect the new camera reference design to be available for mobile OEM's in mid-2015."
"With its MV4D technology platform, Mantis Vision takes 3D imaging mainstream introducing their technology to compact, high performance mobile devices like smartphones and tablets," said Tehzeeb Gunja, senior partnership and business development manager at OmniVision. "We are very excited about the new, imaginative and compelling user experiences that 3D imaging can deliver."
The 1/7.5-inch OV7251 global shutter sensor enables the MV4D camera to record VGA resolution video at up to 100 frames per second (FPS). By using a global shutter, the OV7251 is able to greatly reduce ambient light constraints, while allowing for simultaneous operation of multiple devices simultaneously without cross interfering. OmniVision's OV7251 also enables excellent low-light sensitivity and provides motion tracking information, facilitating the utilization of accurate and detailed device orientation data.
