Toshiba Launches VGA CMOS Image Sensors for Surveillance Cameras and Drive Recorders

Enables High Sensitivity Video Capturing under Low Light Conditions

TOKYO — (BUSINESS WIRE) — March 26, 2014Toshiba Corporation (TOKYO:6502) announced today that it will start mass production shipments of “TCM3211PB”, a 1/4 inch VGA CMOS area image sensor for surveillance cameras and drive recorders, at the end of April.
The new sensor adopts large 5.6 µm pixels, improving low light sensitivity. Even in moonlight1, bright images can be captured.
The sensor also incorporates a single frame HDR (High Dynamic Range) function2 based on Toshiba algorithm. It reduces false color3 and faithfully reproduces dark and bright areas in high contrast images.
The product’s high frame rate of 60 fps at full resolution enables smooth and seamless capture of video images.
