OmniVision Is Driving Innovation in Notebooks and 2-in-1 PCs

Notebooks and 2-in-1 PCs are quickly expanding the boundaries of the screen and keyboard in an industry-wide shift towards more natural user interfaces. Features such as gesture control, face detection and eye tracking have seen tremendous interest by manufacturers as a result of consumer demand. These groundbreaking capabilities allow users to interact with notebooks and 2-in-1 PCs in ways that were previously unimaginable, and give rise to an entirely new era of personal computing.

OmniVision is at the leading edge of this technology, offering a range of sensors that deliver the high-performance imaging and computer vision capabilities our customers have come to expect.
User Interfaces

Innovative Solutions for New Applications

OmniVision’s RGB IR image sensors can capture high-resolution images and video as well as IR information. These sensors’ dual RGB and IR capabilities allow a host of additional features for mobile and machine vision applications, including gesture sensing, depth analysis, iris detection and eye tracking.

Global shutter sensors reduce or eliminate unwanted image artifacts, which occur with traditional rolling-shutter image sensors as a result of moving subjects during image capture. OmniVision’s global-shutter technology enables the highest-quality gesture detection, head and eye tracking, and depth and motion detection in notebook and PC applications.

OmniVision sensors also enable a host of power-saving features, such as light-sensing mode. In this mode, OmniVision’s global shutter sensors wake the computer from sleep mode only when a change in light has been detected. 

Industry Leading HD Portfolio for Video Conferencing

OmniVision offers a wide range of industry-leading digital imaging solutions for notebooks and 2-in-1 PCs that range from VGA resolution up to 10-megapixels and beyond. OmniVision's growing portfolio of image sensors equipped with high dynamic range (HDR) capabilities, further ensuring high-quality image and video capture even in the toughest lighting conditions.

High-quality video conferencing and recording capabilities have become all but standard requirements for webcams, notebooks and 2-in-1 PCs. As such, OmniVision's sensors are designed to pass stringent industry requirements such as the Skype® certification, ensuring compatibility across the most popular video conferencing services.

OmniVision’s advancements in pixel and image-processing technologies offer extremely attractive solutions in terms of price-to-performance ratio to customers in these specific application areas.
