Quad-HD-Video with 60 fps and 66 dB dynamic range DR-Pix™ Technology




October 25, 2013

The AR1011 provides 10MP resolution, 3.4 μm pixel size, with Aptina’s DR-Pix™ technology, delivering uncompromising low light and bright scene image quality. The AR1011HS high-speed sensor architecture is capable of reading full 10MP resolution at 60fps and enables a variety of video modes including broadcast quality quad high definition (HD), oversampled 1080p for True HD resolution, 1080p video at 120 frames per second, and additional high frame rate modes for slow motion playback.

"Image quality and speed are the two features the market cannot compromise on. Tier-1 OEMs competing in this market are looking for increasingly versatile solutions to meet the demand for speed and performance, and this sensor provides both," said Sandor Barna, VP and GM of Aptina’s Consumer Camera business.

Integrating Aptina’s DR-Pix™ technology, the AR1011 delivers both high-pixel sensitivity for low-light imaging, and high-pixel capacity for bright outdoor scenes. The combination of this outstanding pixel performance and high-speed readout technologies enables fast, vivid broadcast quality video and high-end still image capture quality in a single sensor solution.
