Digital imaging solutions provider OMNIVISION has announced its first 2K2K (2048×2048) square resolution CMOS image sensor designed for 1:1 aspect ratio security wide-field-of-view (dome, fisheye, and doorbell) and pass-through (AR/VR/MR) cameras. The OS04E10 is offered as the industry’s first image sensor with digital watermarking, a built-in anti-spoofing feature that ensures the original video source is not tampered with.

The sensor captures real-time fast-moving video and features always-on low-power mode at 512p for excellent pre-roll video recording capabilities.

“As the market leader for image sensors in the security market, we are pleased to launch OMNIVISION’s first square 2K2K image sensor that is developed specifically for 1:1 aspect ratio security system designs – the preferred design for AR/VR/MR pass-through and security wide-field-of-view applications,” says Devang Patel, marketing director for the IoT and emerging segment, OMNIVISION. “We are also introducing the industry’s first digital watermarking anti-spoofing capability with the OS04E10 sensor. Pairing the OS04E10 with OMNIVISION’s OA7600 and OA8000 application specific integrated circuits (ASICs) provides a total battery-powered camera system with always-on and pre-roll video recording capabilities.”

The OS04E10 image sensor has a 2.0-micron pixel with a 1/3.11-inch optical format and is based on the company’s PureCel Plus technology, which reduces pixel crosstalk and noise for better color reproduction under low-light conditions. Its onboard Nyxel near-infrared (NIR) technology ensures low to no ambient light image capture with IR source will result in clear and crisp images and provides opportunities for camera designers to extend battery life. The sensor’s two-exposure staggered HDR mode increases dynamic range. The OS04E10 supports MIPI and LVDS interfaces.

Samples of the OS04E10 are available now, and it is expected be in mass production in the second half of 2023.
