What’s STARVIS/STARVIS 2? One of the essential features for security cameras is the imaging ability that delivers clear images in dark locations. Sony’s image sensors with STARVIS/STARVIS 2 technology have the sensitivity well above that of the human eye. They deliver excellent performance in the low- illumination monitoringas they notContinue Reading

In the image sensor market, we are also focusing on the sensing field, where applications are expected to expand. Besides the imaging technology we have honed for viewing captured images, we will be combining this technology with sensing technology for acquiring and using a various information. In this way, weContinue Reading

CMOS image sensor development at Sony began in 1996 and led to the launch of our first CMOS image sensor (IMX001) in 2000. At the time, CMOS image sensors produced noisy images under low light and were also inferior to CCD image sensors in the number of pixels. However, theContinue Reading

“Privid” could help officials gather secure public health data or enable transportation departments to monitor the density and flow of pedestrians, without learning personal information about people. Rachel Gordon | MIT CSAIL Surveillance cameras have an identity problem, fueled by an inherent tension between utility and privacy. As these powerful little devicesContinue Reading

Sony Semiconductor Solutions Corporation (“Sony”) has succeeded in developing the world’s first*1 stacked CMOS image sensor technology with 2-Layer Transistor Pixel. Whereas conventional CMOS image sensors’ photodiodes and pixel transistors occupy the same substrate, Sony’s new technology separates photodiodes and pixel transistors on different substrate layers. This new architecture approximately doubles*2 saturationContinue Reading

IntroductionThere is a clear trend and market need for high-power transmission over cable. Power over HDBaseT (POH) enablesthe transfer of DC power in conjunction with data signals over a single Ethernet cable to a distance of up to 100meters (m). The POH standard is based on the IEEE 802.3at standardContinue Reading

 Last month we posted a blog about HDBaseT that explained the application and how testing isn’t really any different since standards-based Category 5e, 5 or 6A will support it. But maybe you’ve also heard about power over HDBaseT, or POH, and you’re wondering how that differs from power over Ethernet (PoE). AContinue Reading
