Full HD 1080p CMOS Image Sensor

Full HD 1080p WiFi/Cloud IP camera - OV2718 GM8136S

An IP network camera mainly consists of a lens, an image sensor, an image processor and an Ethernet chip that offers network connectivity for data transmission. Among them, image sensor and SoC processor are core components of the IP camera. As the leading manufacturer of megapixel CMOS image sensors, OmniVision introduced the OV2718, which is a native 16:9 high definition (HD) CameraChip™ sensor that delivers best-in-class low-light sensitivity, high dynamic range (HDR), and 1080p HD video. Incorporating Grain Media's GM8136S processor to provide full HD 1080p IP camera solution. We expect the OV2718 + GSM8136S will become the predominant solution for consumer 1080p HD network cameras.

According to Chris Yiu, Senior Strategic Marketing Manager at OmniVision, IP camera market, home video surveillance is fast becoming an integral feature in mainstream security systems around the world. Grain Media a leading developer of low-power, high-definition (HD) and Ultra HD video compression and image processing solutions, and OmniVision are proud to see our best-in-class OV2718 CameraChip sensor integrated into its GSM8136S offering. OmniVision + Grain Media IP camera solution has been widely adopted in consumer IP cameras including products from StarVedia, Vivotek etc reputable manufacturers.

OmniVision's OV2718 is 1/2.9" size full HD 1080p CMOS image sensor built-on advanced 2.8-micron OmniBSI-2 pixel architecture, this sensor can deliver 1080p full HD video at 30fps with HDR technology (High-dynamic-range technology can greatly improve the image quality to provide you vivid color, high contrast image).

"The GM8136S is a fully integrated, single chip SoC IP camera solution that brings together an image sensor, digital streaming functionality, and storage," said Alan Hsieh, President at Grain Media. Grain Media’s IP Camera SoC GM8136S/GM8135S is a full HD camera System on Chips (SoCs) designed for consumer, small business and professional IP-camera security applications. The GM8136S embedded with high-performance video codec engine to deliver HD video with low bitrate and bandwidth requirement. It includes rich system peripheral elements, enable GM8136S/GM8135S to support most of the surveillance applications of cost-effective products. Additionally, it supports many advanced image processing technology including WDR, tone mapping, 3D digital noise reduction, smart video analytics etc.

Megapixel CMOS image sensors are massively deployed in network cameras and smartphone. To provide high image quality and excellent performance, network camera manufacturers may use megapixel CMOS image sensors from different manufacturers. Today, the CMOS image technology and manufacturing is monopolized by giants including Sony, Aptina, OmniVision, Panasonic, Pixelplus. Among them, Sony is the No.1 image sensor producer, even Apple chooses to use SONY CMOS image sensor for their iPhone. The main camera on the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus uses an 8-megapixel sensor from Sony.
