Kodak New Image Sensor Technology

Kodak is introducing a new image sensor technology that promises to make dark, blurry digital photos a thing of the past.

The company says their new technology can provide up to four times increase in light sensitivity compared to present sensor designs.

Most sensors today are based on the “Bayer Pattern,” an arrangement of red, green, and blue pixels that was first developed by Kodak scientist Dr. Bryce Bayer in 1976, where half of the pixels on the sensor are used to collect green light, with the remaining pixels split evenly between sensitivity to red and blue light.

Kodak’s new proprietary technology adds panchromatic, or “clear” pixels to the red, green, and blue elements that form the image sensor array. Since these pixels are sensitive to all wavelengths of visible light, they collect a significantly higher proportion of the light striking the sensor.
