OmniVision Anounces 3.1 Megapixel CameraChip with New VarioPixel Technology

„New High Resolution Chip Has Advanced Video and Low-light Sensitivity Modes\r\n
\r\n
\r\nSUNNYVALE, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–March 3, 2003– OmniVision Technologies, Inc. (Nasdaq:OVTI – News), a market-leading independent supplier of CameraChip(TM) solutions for high-volume imaging applications, today announced it has begun sampling 3.1 Mega-Pixel CameraChips to customers with its newly developed VarioPixel(TM) technology. The 3.1 Mega-Pixel OV3610 CameraChip is designed for use by volume manufacturers of Digital Still Cameras or combination still image/video cameras where high image quality and low power constraints place stringent demands on CameraChip providers. VarioPixel is a new technology developed by OmniVision to enhance the video and low light capabilities of its high resolution CameraChips.“;“\“OmniVision continues to demonstrate technology leadership with our new 3.1 mega pixel CameraChip,\“ stated John Lynch, Vice President Sales and Marketing at OmniVision. \“By providing enhanced capabilities afforded by our VarioPixel technology, we believe we will be able to offer the most competitive solution in terms of price, performance and features.\“\r\n
\r\n
\r\nVarioPixel is a newly developed technology that uses multiple pixels to act as a single pixel in order to improve the chips performance. CameraChips that incorporate the technology can provide significantly improved low light performance at video resolutions giving consumers improved LCD preview capabilities and enhanced video capture.\r\n
\r\n
\r\nThe OV3610 is a 1/2 inch optical format CMOS CameraChip with 2048 x 1536 pixels, enabling high quality 3\“x 5\“, 4\“x 6\“ and 8\“ x 10\“ prints. This latest CameraChip offering by Omnivision outputs Bayer Pattern RGB data and integrates auto-white balance, auto-exposure, auto-gain control and performs correlated double sampling. Based on the VarioPixel technology, it can output XGA resolution video with 4x low light performance enhancement.\r\n
\r\n
\r\nThe OV3610 is pin-for-pin compatible with OmniVision’s current OV9620 1.3 Mega-Pixel and the OV2610 2 Mega-Pixel CameraChips. It draws less than 50mA at 3.3 volts, significantly less than comparable CCD based multi-chip image sensor solutions currently available on the market. CMOS CameraChips require fewer supporting components than comparable CCD offerings. This allows manufacturers to reduce the overall size and complexity of their camera design and speed the camera manufacturers‘ time-to-market.\r\n
\r\n
\r\nOmniVision is demonstrating the OV3610 in their booth at the PMA 2003 Camera Show in Las Vegas March 2-5.\r\n
