OmniVision's OV2741 image sensor leverages 1.4-micron PureCel® pixel architecture to deliver best-in-class image quality and fast-frame-rate full 1080p high definition (HD) video to endoscopic applications, such as urology, laparoscopy, gynecology, cardiology and surgery.
By using PureCel pixel architecture, the OV2741 offers the highest-quality imaging capabilities with improved sensitivity and quantum efficiency, high full-well capacity, low color crosstalk, and minimal blooming and noise. The OV2741's broadband double anti-reflective coating reduces flare in the visible and near-infrared spectrums, which is typically caused by strong ancillary illumination during surgical operations.
The compact OV2741 is capable of recording full 1080p HD video at 60 frames per second (fps), or 720p HD video at 90 fps to ensure clear scene reproduction with minimal motion artifacts. The sensor supports interlaced high dynamic range (HDR), which enables clear image capture with less saturation and excellent low light sensitivity in difficult high- and low- lighting situations. The OV2741 is also stereo-ready with frame synchronization for 3D surgical applications.
OmniVision's OV2741 consumes just 90 mW when recording 1080p HD video at 60 fps, which helps reduce heat generation at the distal tip of the endoscope to improve patient comfort and simplify design.
The OV2741 is available in an 1/6-inch optical format and a compact 3.8 x 2.9 mm chip scale package (CSP). This sensor can be autoclaved and sterilized for reusable and single-use applications respectively.
