Aptina has rolled out a 14MP CMOS image sensor for digital cameras that the company said offers an imaging solution in the 1in format. According to the company, the AR1411HS allows top consumer camera makers to develop the next generation of mirrorless, bridge, high-end compact and broadcast digital video cameras.

The image sensor competes at the highest level with an ultra-sensitive pixel, using Aptina DR-Pix technology to achieve superior image quality in both low-lit and brightly-lit scenes, boasted the company. This is combined with the ability to output the full 14MP resolution at up to 80fps for an amazing 1.1GP/s, 40 per cent faster than its 10MP predecessor, added Aptina. The high-speed readout gives the sensor the capability of providing full 4K video at 60fps, in either the Quad HD (3840H x 2160V) or the wider Digital Cinema 4K format (4096H x 2160V), and a blazingly fast 120fps 1080p video mode, enabling slow-motion video capture without loss of resolution, the firm indicated.

This speed also gives the user the unique capability of grabbing full 14MP resolution still images without interrupting a super-sharp, oversampled 1080p HD video stream.

Aptina's AR1411HS image sensor is in mass production.
