The OV2736 is a 1/4-inch PureCel® image sensor that uses OmniVision's industry-leading RGB-Ir technology to enable high-end image quality, low power consumption and advanced functionality. These capabilities make the OV2736 suitable for a wide range of battery-powered camera applications, including home security and monitoring, high-end video conferencing, and action or lifestyle cameras.

Using a 4x4 RGB-Ir pixel pattern, the OV2736 eliminates the need for two-camera solutions for devices that require both RGB and infrared imaging. Using this technology, the sensor delivers unprecedented performance in near-total darkness, capturing high-quality 1080p full high definition (HD) video at 60 frames per second (fps) with high dynamic range (HDR), or 720p HD video at 90 fps.

Rather than a traditional mechanical infrared filter, the OV2736 utilizes dual-band color filters to deliver superior image quality in near-total darkness. The sensor's small optical format and minimal 110 mW power consumption ensure that it is easily integrated into mainstream industrial designs.
