Omnivision Hopes Its New Sensor Will Lead to Better Selfies
Omnivision today announced the OV9762, a new imaging sensor built specifically for the user-facing camera in smartphones and tablets. The sensor forgoes 1080p HD video capture in favor of vastly improved 720p HD video capture in low light situations. It uses Omnivision's new 1.87-micron OmniBSI-2 pixel, which can record 1.3-megapixel video at 30 frames per second, or 720p HD video at 30fps with electronic image stabilization. Omnivision says the OV9762 is compact and fits into a 4.3 x 4.1mm package. It is already being produced in volume.
