Starvis is a new generation low light technology developed by Sony, Sony has released a series of HD CMOS image sensor supported with Starvis technology and DOL WDR. Here we introduce you the IP camera solution that leveraging Sony Starvis CMOS sensors. Compared with traditional security cameras, the Starvis CMOS sensor powered security cameras is able to deliver full color image without using artificial illumination (Infrared lighting/white lighting) under low light conditions. The sensitivity of Starvis CMOS image sensor is two times higher than conventional CMOS image sensors.
Without using the artificial lighting, the camera can be designed very small. Being able to reduce the total power consumption and heat, Starvis low-light cameras are eco-friendly and reliable.
Typically, the Infrared LEDs have the limited lifespan, and the light efficiency will gradually reduce as time goes on. Using the Starvis security cameras can perfectly solve this problem. For example, Sony IMX291 CMOS image sensor can capture color image under 0.0001Lux, to capture monochrome image, the minimum illumination is 0Lux, which means this image sensor can see what human eyes can’t see.
Based on recent released product brochure, Sony Starvis CMOS image sensors portfolio including:
Undoubtedly, Starlight security cameras will become popular because people are tired of conventional products. Many camera manufacturers released the Starvis image sensor powered security cameras.
The newest 1.3-Megapixel IP camera solution employs a Sony IMX225 CMOS image sensor, utilizing Hi3518EV200 as core processor and video codec, the camera module can deliver crisp clear image with 1280x960 resolution at 18 frames per second, or 1280x720 resolution at 25 frames per second. It can capture color image under 0.0001Lux minimum illumination and B/W image under 0Lux.
Hi3518EV200 is the upgraded HD video processor has DDRAM built-in, it offers 2D/3D noise reduction and D-WDR, BLC/HLC functions. In addition to supporting 12V DC power, users can choose to add PoE module to achieve Power over Ethernet function.
Hi3516C is a dual-core HD video processor for Full HD IP cameras, Hi3516C supports maximum Full HD 1080p@30fps video encoding and streaming. Through working with Sony 1/2.8-inch CMOS image sensor IMX291, the IP camera module not only can capture 1920x1080 resolution H.264 video at 30 frames per second, but also providing exceptional starlight performance.
