Sony Semiconductor Solutions Corporation (SSS) today announced the upcoming release of the IMX675, a 1/3-type CMOS image sensor for security cameras with approximately 5.12 megapixels*2 that simultaneously delivers both full-pixel output of the whole captured image and high-speed output of regions of interest.
In an industry first,*1 the new sensor from SSS leverages Dual Speed Streaming technology to output all of the pixels in a captured image at a maximum rate of 40 frames per second while simultaneously outputting specific user-set regions of interest at high speed. Using this image sensor allows a single camera not only to provide comprehensive images of scenes, but also to support high-speed recognition of specific objects at a high level of detail.
The new sensor also employs unique STARVISTM 2 technology from SSS, which delivers high-sensitivity and a wide dynamic range, but with approximately 30% less power consumption than conventional models,*3 thanks to its proprietary stacked structure.
These technologies come together to deliver high-performance, high-quality image capture regardless of usage conditions or time of day, thereby contributing to a safer, more secure society.
