At next week’s Photokina show Micron Technology, Inc. is set to announce a new 5-megapixel high-definition (HD) image sensor for mainstream digital cameras. The company says the new sensor is capable of capturing video at 60 frames per second (fps) in 720p (progressive) format and 30 fps in 1080p format.
Micron will also introduce a new HD video sensor that captures 60 fps in 720p format for digital video camcorder applications. Designed to work with long-range zoom lenses, the sensor is built using Micron’s 2.2-micron pixel technology.
Micron is previewing these imaging innovations to demonstrate its new reference designs for digital still and video cameras.
