SANTA CLARA, CA.  OmniVision Technologies, Inc. released its OV02K, a new video-centric, 2.9-micron 1080p image sensor designed for smartphones that enables the secondary camera in multi-camera configurations to capture high-quality videos, even in dim-lighted conditions.

The OV02K is available in a 1/2.8-inch optical format, features 1080p resolution at up to 120 frames per second (fps), conducive for both standard and slow-motion video capture. The sensor is capable of supporting up to three exposures of staggered timing to enable high-dynamic range (HDR) and sustains frame-to-frame dual conversion gain (DCG).

“There is an increasing demand from smartphone users to capture high-quality videos, especially with social media sharing becoming more prevalent,” said Arun Jayaseelan, OmniVision’s senior marketing manager. “The OV02K, with its relatively large pixel size, is perfect for super-high-quality video captures, even in less-than-ideal lighting conditions.”
