DescriptionThe IMX715-AAQR1 is a diagonal 6.4 mm (Type 1/2.8) CMOS active pixel type solid-state image sensor with asquare pixel array and 8.46 M effective pixels. This chip operates with analog 2.9 V, digital 1.1 V, and interface 1.8 Vtriple power supply, and has low power consumption. High sensitivity, low darkContinue Reading

Faster than the Human Eye! Higher Speed with Column-parallel A/D Conversion and Reducing Noise The key to increased speed of Sony’s CMOS Image Sensor can be found in parallel signal processing. CMOS sensors have analog-digital (A/D) conversion circuits that convert analog pixel signals into digital signals (Figure 1). Speed isContinue Reading

Greater Sensitivity than the Human Eye! Back-illuminated structure provides higher sensitivity Sony’s back-illuminated CMOS image sensor improves sensitivity and noise reduction – the key factors to enhancing image quality, while radically realigning their fundamental pixel structure from front-illumination to back-illumination. It has retained the advantages of CMOS image sensors suchContinue Reading

Adding Functional Value to a CMOS Image Sensor that Exceeds Human Vision! Back-illuminated and stacked structure provide advanced functionality Stacked CMOS Image Sensor is a Sony’s CMOS image sensor that adopts a unique ‘stacked structure.’ This structure layers the pixel section, containing formations of back-illuminated pixels over the chip affixedContinue Reading

What’s SLVS-EC? Scalable Low-Voltage Signaling with Embedded Clock, abbreviated SLVS-EC, is a high-speed interface standard developed by Sony for fast, high-resolution image sensors. The interface’s simple protocol makes it easy to build camera systems. Featuring an embedded clock signal, it is a good choice for higher speeds or transmission overContinue Reading

DOL-HDR DOL-HDR: Digital Overlap High Dynamic Range In the DOL-HDR technology, an image processing technology for subjects with high contrast. It synthesizes different exposure conditions into an image so that both bright and dark data can be seen at the same time.Therefore, it outputs brilliant colors are captured even whenContinue Reading | By Oriana Pawlyk While police units across the U.S. are seeing increased calls for body camera use to better monitor what officers are doing, the Air Force’s law enforcement troops will stop using the security tool in part due to lack of funding for their application. The service hasContinue Reading

Purchased camera systems were supposedly made in the U.S. but actually originated from Chinese companies blacklisted for security reasons. Sam Biddle NUMEROUS FEDERAL AGENCIES, including several branches of the military, buy video surveillance equipment that can’t legally be used in U.S. government systems and that is made by Chinese companies sanctionedContinue Reading

By SIA The Security Industry Association has reaffirmed its commitment to supporting the responsible and ethical uses of security technology. In July 2020, SIA implemented its Code of Ethics and required all new and renewing members to affirm that they will abide by the provisions of the code. SIA regards theContinue Reading
