AltaSens introduces "4K and Beyond" sensor
AltaSens, Inc., a pioneer in high-resolution CMOS imaging system-on-chip (iSoC) sensors at HD format, introduced its first commercially available 4K sensor: the AL41410C. The Super-35 size image sensor delivers industry-standard 4K cinema frames in either 12-bit or 10-bit resolution at up to 72 frames per second (fps) using as little as 1.3W. A 5.2-μm pixel pitch gives the AL41410C its high sensitivity, as well as low noise and extensive compatibility with the sharpest available optics usually reserved for leading DSLR cameras.
AltaSens will showcase the AL41410 at the NAB (National Association of Broadcasters) Show in Las Vegas, Nevada, from April 7 to 10 in booth C12033.
"This sensor delivers crisp, high frame rate imaging through 4K and beyond," explained Lester Kozlowski, the company founder and CEO. Darren Paulson, VP of Business Development and Compliance, added, "The sensor's expansive programmability, including extremely fast frame rates at multiple optical formats, enables the next generation of broadcast through scientific, military and consumer digital cameras."
The first camera modules using the AL41410C sensor were also announced. The AltaSens 4K Pro RGB camera module generates and records HD through 4K in color, via both the AL41410C and highly advanced image signal processing technology. The AltaSens 4K Pro Night Vision camera module delivers and records intensified HD through 4K video in highest resolution monochrome.
