Aptina LogoSind Handyvideos bald in 4K-Auflösung möglich? Aptina kündigte heute in einer Pressmitteilung zwei neue Bildsensoren mit 12 (AR1230) und 13-Megapixel (AR1330) an. Bereits im Oktober letzten Jahres gab es Gerüchte, das ein 4K-fähiger Chip für Videoaufnahmen bei Aptina in der Entwicklung sei. Zu diesem Zeitpunkt ist man davon ausgegangen, dass dieser hauptsächlich in neuen Ditigalkameras wie der Nikon 1er Serie zum Einsatz kommt.

Die neuen Chips sind mit Aptinas A-PixHS und AptinaMobileHDR-Technologie ausgestattet, welche auch bei schlechten Lichtverhältnissen perfekte Bilder liefern sollen. Der neue Bildsensor soll nur in High-End-Smartphones verbaut werden.

1.1 Micron Pixel Technologie

„Die 1.1 Micron Pixel Technologie wird ein wichtiger Faktor für die Mobile-Industrie. Über die nächsten vier Jahre gibt diese Herstellern von mobilen Geräten die Möglichkeit, Bildsensoren mit einer höheren Auflösung bei gleichem Formfaktor zu verbauen. Das 1/3 Zoll Format wird aber weiterhin der bestimmende Formfaktor bei Mid- und High-End-Smartphones bleiben“ sagt Tetsuo Omori, Sr. Mobilindustrie-Analyst bei Techno Systems Research.

Mobile HDR Technologie:

Die Mobile HDR Technologie erhöhrt die dynamische Licht-Bandbreite bis zu 24 Dezibel, während die Bildschärfe, auch bei bewegten Bildern nicht beeinflusst wird. Das Ergebnis ist ein scharfes, klares Bild, egal in welchen Lichtverhältnissen aufgenommen.

Vollgepackt mit innovativen Features ist der Sensor AR-1230 in der Lage, 4K-Videos (Ultra HD) mit 30 Bildern pro Sekunde, sowie 1080p-Aufnahmen mit 96 Bilder pro Sekunde aufzuzeichnen. Letzteres eignet sich perfekt für Zeitlupenaufnahmen. Der große Bruder AR-1330 hat auch noch einen erweiterten Bildstabilisator an Board und ist somit die beste Lösung, Videos im 4K Cinema-Format aufzunehmen. Weitere Features sind SuperSlowMotion, neue Zoom-Methodik und die Möglichkeit Videos in 3D aufzunehmen.

Verfügbarkeit

Der Bildsensor mit der Modellbezeichnung AR1230 (12 Megapixel) ist ab sofort für Großbesteller verfügbar. Der 13 Megapixel-Sensor, AR1330, wurde gerade an Tester verteilt und wird im Sommer diesen Jahres in die Massenproduktion gehen.

Aptina advances Smartphone imaging with a family of 1.1-micron pixel-based
sensors
SAN JOSE, Calif.--(Business Wire)--
Aptina announced today the introduction of its 12-megapixel (MP) and
13-megapixel mobile image sensors targeting high end Smartphone manufacturers.
Integrating Aptina`s most advanced pixel technology, the new sensors combine 3rd
generation Aptina A-PixHS and 4th generation AptinaMobileHDR technology to
deliver superior low light performance and best-in-class still and high speed
video high dynamic range (HDR) allowing consumers to take exceptional pictures
and video regardless of lighting conditions. The smaller 1.1-micron pixel
provides dramatic results with incredibly fine detail rivaling the performance
of digital still cameras and enabling advanced features high end mobile devices
demand. 

"1.1-micron pixel technology will be a significant driver in the mobile industry
over the next four years providing a path for handset makers to offer higher
resolution sensors in the same form factors. The 1/3-inch format will continue
to be the dominant form factor for designers of mid to high-end smart phones,"
said Tetsuo Omori, Sr. Mobile Industry Analyst at Techno Systems Research. 

Both sensors take advantage of 4th generation Aptina MobileHDR technology which
increases dynamic range as much as 24 decibels (dB) while maintaining image
sharpness and compensating for motion making it perfect for video and still
images. The end result is crisp, clear images and videos across varying lighting
conditions. 

Fully equipped with innovative features that produce color- rich video and
images in full field of view, the AR1230 captures crisp 4K -UHD video at 30fps
as well as 1080P video up to 96fps for smooth playback. The AR1330 increases
video capabilities by providing enhanced electronic image stabilization support
in 1080P mode while capturing video in both 4K UHD and 4K Cinema formats at
30fps. Additionally, both sensors support advanced features like super slow
motion video, new zoom methodologies, computational array imaging and 3D image
capture which allows OEMs to offer unique solutions in their latest Smartphones.

"Built on Aptina`s smallest, and most advanced 1.1-micron pixel technology, the
AR1230 and AR1330 image sensors provide the high resolution, impressive
low-light sensitivity, and advanced features manufacturers of high end
Smartphone are looking for," said Gennadiy Agranov, Pixel CTO and Vice President
at Aptina. "These sensors are the first of a family of new, high quality
1.1-micron based products being sampled by our customers, and which Aptina will
be delivering in the coming years." 

Availability

The AR1230 is now in production and is available for mass production orders
immediately. The AR1330 is sampling now and will be in production by summer of
2013. Available in die for OEMs and manufacturers who have their own ISP; these
sensors are also available with Aptina`s imaging co-processor for a fully tuned,
complete camera solution. 

The AR1230 and AR1330 sensors are available in standard 8.5 x 8.5mm modules with
low Z-heights to leading OEMs and camera module integrators. The AR1330 is
manufactured on the latest 300mm CMOS image sensor process at TSMC producing
category leading image sensor performance.
