LAS VEGAS — January 7, 2016 — OMNIVISION Technologies, Inc. (NASDAQ: OVTI), a leading developer of advanced digital imaging solutions, and VATICS Inc., a multimedia communication systemon-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.
