Sony shows new videos of the Starvis (super low light) and Pregius (global shutter) sensors .


Starvis Sony sensors can see in nearly dark conditions!

Sony posted two new videos showing two new sensor tech. For now both sensors are made for a main use in the security camera business. But the sensors features might find some of it on future digital cameras too. Here is the official sensor description:

Pregius sensor:The Pregius is global shutter pixel technology for active pixel-type CMOS image sensors that use Sony’s low-noise CCD structure, and realizes high picture quality.” (Source: Sony).

Starvis sensor:The STARVIS is back-illuminated pixel technology used in CMOS image sensors for surveillance camera applications. It features a sensitivity of 2000 mV or more per 1 µm2 (color product, when imaging with a 706 cd/m2 light source, F5.6 in 1 s accumulation equivalent), and realizes high picture quality in the visible-light and near infrared light regions.” (Source: Sony).

And here are two videos:
