OmniVision Launches Two Security CameraChip(TM) Sensors with Second-Generation RGB-Ir Dual Color Band

1/3-Inch OV4686 and OV9756 Deliver Improved Color Accuracy, Minimal Aliasing, and Infrared Functionality

LAS VEGAS, – OmniVision Technologies, Inc., a leading developer of advanced digital imaging solutions, today announced the OV4686 and OV9756, two new 1/3-inch RGB-Ir sensors that support dual band color filters instead of traditional mechanical rotary IR filters. Leveraging an innovative color array pattern, the OV4686 and OV9756 can capture high quality infrared images and video, even from long ranges, and bring superior color aliasing performance compared to previous generation offerings.

"Maintaining high quality images and color accuracy as lighting conditions change throughout the day is an essential capability for image sensors geared towards the security marketplace," said Chris Yiu, senior marketing manager at OmniVision. "By utilizing our second-generation RGB-Ir dual color band filter, the OV4686 and OV9756 sensors deliver excellent color performance and infrared imaging in a compact form factor well-suited for commercial and consumer applications such as smart doorbells and other IoT camera systems."

Built on a 2-micron OmniBSI-2™ pixel, the OV4686 captures full-resolution 1080p high definition (HD) video at 120 frames per second (FPS) and 720p HD at 180 FPS, delivering best-in-class low-light and infrared performance as well as fast mode switching.

The OV9756 leverages OmniVision's 3.75-micron OmniPixel3-HS™ high sensitivity pixel architecture to bring excellent scene reproduction to a wide range of security and smart home camera applications. The OV9756 can operate in extremely high- and low-light conditions, delivering full-resolution 720p video at 60 FPS. It also features low-power mode with system wake-up trigger functionality.

The OV4686 and OV9756 sensors are currently available for sampling and are expected to enter volume production in the second quarter of 2016.
