The 2.0‑micron pixel OS04L in a 1/3‑inch optical format allows OEMs to cost-effectively upgrade to 4MP for higher resolution consumer security cameras
SANTA CLARA, Calif. — October 4, 2022 — OMNIVISION, a leading global developer of semiconductor solutions, including advanced digital imaging, analog, and touch & display technology, today announced the new OS04L CMOS 4‑megapixel (MP) image sensor that brings 2K resolution digital images and high-definition (HD) video to consumer security devices, including smart home, doorbell, baby monitor, IP, and HD analog cameras. The OS04L sensor provides OEMs with a cost-effective upgrade path for their camera resolution to go from 2 or 3MP to 4MP with a smaller pixel sensor in a 1/3‑inch optical format.
The OS04L image sensor features a 2.0‑micron pixel based on OMNIVISION’s OmniPixel®3‑HS technology. This high-performance, cost-effective solution uses high-sensitivity frontside illumination (FSI) for true-to-life color reproduction in both bright and dark conditions.
“The OS04L provides a seamless camera resolution upgrade to 4MP for consumer security devices at a price point comparable to 2MP and 3MP sensors,” said Cheney Zhang, senior marketing manager, OMNIVISION. “This is especially important as we are seeing an increasing demand for entry-level smart home devices across the globe, and customers want a high-performance, cost-effective product.”
The global smart home market size is projected to reach USD 537.01 billion by 2030, growing at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 27% from 2022 to 2030, according to a report by Grand View Research, Inc. The security and surveillance segment registered the highest revenue share of about 31% in 20211.
The OS04L image sensor features 2K resolution at 30 frames per second and has 2×2 binning for enhanced sensitivity. It supports MIPI interfaces.
