Booth Demonstrations - Booth# 12075

Ultra-low Light CCTV Demonstration

This demonstration features OmniVision's latest SoC image sensor for professional-grade closed circuit television (CCTV) applications, delivering CCD quality images with all the traditional advantages of CMOS, including higher integration, lower power and lower overall bill-of-material cost. Featuring OmniVision's high-sensitivity OmniPixel3-HS(TM) architecture, this latest low-voltage, high-performance SoC supports a full ISP and TV encoder to deliver both NTSC and PAL output.

IP Solution Demonstration

The OV9715 1 megapixel sensor offers best-in-class 720p HD video performance at 30 frames per second (fps). Featuring OmniVision's 3 x 3um OmniPixel3-HS pixel, the OV9715 offers a low light sensitivity of 3.3V lux/sec, delivering vivid imaging in virtually every lighting condition - from bright daylight to nearly complete darkness. The 1/4-inch OV9715 provides full-frame, sub-sampled or windowed 8-bit/10-bit images in raw RGB format via the digital video port, with complete user control over image quality, formatting and output data transfer.

RemoteEye-CE Demonstration

The OmniVision RemoteEye-CE is a complete reference design kit to enable an IP Camera for less than a $10 component BOM. It supports multiple OmniVision sensors from VGA up to 3 megapixels, including the latest OV7740 VGA sensor. The RemoteEye-CE provides Motion JPEG compression and supports all necessary network protocols such as TCP/IP/ ARP, ICMP, DHCP, DDNS, UDP, FTP, uPnP, SMTP, PPPoe, and NTP. The development kit includes all the components necessary for time-to-market including schematics, BOM, firmware, software development kit, and testing programs.

CameraCube(TM) Technology Demonstration

OmniVision's new CameraCube technology is a three-dimensional reflowable, total camera solution that combines the full functionality of a single-chip image sensor, embedded image processor, and wafer-level optics in one compact, small-footprint package. OmniVision's unique approach has enabled the industry's smallest profile and z-height (down to 2.5 x 2.9 x 2.5 mm), making it an ideal solution for miniature security camera applications. The initial two devices including the OVM6680 (400 x 400 pixels) and OVM7690 (VGA) are both featured.
