Cost-Effective Camera Solution Brings 360- and 180-Degree Video to Home Surveillance Applications

LAS VEGAS — January 7, 2016 — OMNIVISION Technologies, Inc. (Nasdaq: OVTI), a leading developer of advanced digital imaging solutions, and VATICS Inc., a multimedia communication system-on-chip (SoC) solutions provider, today announced from the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) a highly integrated, cost-effective IP camera solution for indoor and outdoor surveillance systems. Utilizing OMNIVISION’s high performance OV5658 and OV2718 CameraChip™, the VATICS M3881C Panoramic IP camera solution can capture high quality, wide-angle video with respective 360‑ and 180‑degree coverage.

“The M3881C SoC is a fully integrated, single-chip solution that combines the image signal processor, hardware fisheye correction, memory and video encoder to simplify and reduce costs for wide-angle home security systems while maintaining the highest image quality,” said Joseph Wei, senior sales marketing director at VATICS. “OMNIVISION’s industry-leading technology and dedicated team make them an invaluable partner in developing home surveillance cameras that can be mounted on tables, ceilings or walls with full coverage.”

“The 360‑ and 180‑degree IP camera markets are thriving. Global shipment for these wide-angle cameras is estimated to have grown from 2014 to 2015 at an impressive rate of 70 percent, and shows no signs of slowing,” said Chris Yiu, senior strategic marketing manager at OMNIVISION. “VATICS’ M3881C SoC will play a significant role in defining the capabilities of mainstream home surveillance and IP cameras, and we are thrilled to be their imaging technology provider of choice.”

Leveraging a 1.75‑micron OmniBSI™+ pixel architecture, the 5-megapixel OV5658 CameraChip™ delivers exceptional high-resolution images and 1080p high definition (HD) videos with industry leading sensitivity and high dynamic range (HDR). The OV2718 CameraChip™ is a native 16:9 HD sensor, but leverages a larger 2.8‑micron OmniBSI™‑2 pixel that delivers best-in-class low-light sensitivity, HDR, and crisp 1080p HD video.
