WESTLAKE VILLAGE, Calif., March 27, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- AltaSens, Inc., a leading pioneer in high-resolution CMOS imaging system-on-chip (iSoC) sensors at HD format, introduced a new 4K low-light camera module: the 4K Pro Night-Vision. The intensified unit is the first commercially available low-light, ultra-high-resolution camera module. The highly sophisticated video engine generates multiple formats at blazing frame rates for resolute security, surveillance, life sciences, robotics, and astronomy applications.
AltaSens will showcase the 4K Pro Night-Vision at the NAB (National Association of Broadcasters) Show in Las Vegas, Nevada, from April 7 to 10 in booth C12033.
"We are pleased to offer this low-light-capable module to demanding imaging customers in need of a versatile turnkey camera engine," explained Jake Onodera, Executive Vice President.
Lester Kozlowski, AltaSens Founder and CEO, further explained, "This night-vision module represents the merging of advanced camera and sensor technology to deliver, without compromise, superior image quality regardless of lighting, format or frame rate. We thank JVC Kenwood and Stanford Photonics for enabling this unique module in partnership with AltaSens."
Key features include the following:
- Turnkey intensified VGA-to-UHD camera engine with video recording and still image capture with limit of detection to single photon counting levels
- Advanced imaging signal processor for on-the-fly format changes with seamless image quality management, including various SNR-enhancing binning modes
- 4K video mode at 60 fps; Full HD video mode at 240 fps
- Video recording to SD card or direct output via HDMI 2.0; Still photo capture to SD card
The 4K Pro Night-Vision is powered by the combination of Stanford Photonics' leadership in extending the limits of electronic visualization and detection, AltaSens' AL41410C sensor, and JVC KENWOOD's advanced imaging-signal processor to deliver 4K and beyond at fast frame rates.
The AltaSens AL41410C is our next generation Super-35 size image sensor. Its ability to generate 4096 x 2160 format images makes the AL41410C extremely attractive for producing 4K cinema in the latest UHD cameras. Operating the sensor at a 3840 x 2160 resolution is ideal for Ultra HD video. Alternatively, the 1920 x 1080 HD format at 240 fps is best for sports broadcast or special effects support where clear slow motion playback is vital. Its native 4512 x 3008 resolution is fully operable to 50 fps.
The 4K Pro Color Night-Vision camera module will be available in late 2014. The AL41410C is also available in the AltaSens 4K Pro RGB, a state-of-art camera module that generates 4K through HD video at multiple optical formats and frame rates. Lead time and competitive pricing available upon request.
AltaSens, a wholly owned subsidiary of JVC KENWOOD Corporation (www.jvckenwood.co.jp/en/index.html), was founded in 2004 and has emerged as the pioneer of High Definition and Wide Dynamic Range CMOS imaging technology. For more information about AltaSens products, see www.altasens.com.

In addition to all the benefits, IoT is also bringing new kind of customer experience challenges - cars that unlock themselves, thermostats turning houses into saunas and baby video monitors broadcasting over the internet. This list can only increase because while IoT services should be intuitive and simple to use, the delivery ecosystem is a myriad of potential problems as IoT explodes complexity. So finding a performance issue is like finding the proverbial needle in the haystack.

Between 2005 and 2020, data volumes will grow by a factor of 300 – enough data to stack CDs from the earth to the moon 162 times. This has come to be known as the ‘big data’ phenomenon. Unfortunately, traditional approaches to handling, storing and analyzing data aren’t adequate at this scale: they’re too costly, slow and physically cumbersome to keep up. Fortunately, in response a new breed of technology has emerged that is cheaper, faster and more scalable. Yet, in meeting these new needs they...

When it comes to cloud computing, the ability to turn massive amounts of compute cores on and off on demand sounds attractive to IT staff, who need to manage peaks and valleys in user activity. With cloud bursting, the majority of the data can stay on premises while tapping into compute from public cloud providers, reducing risk and minimizing need to move large files. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Scott Jeschonek, Director of Product Management at Avere Systems, discussed the IT and busin...

According to Forrester Research, every business will become either a digital predator or digital prey by 2020. To avoid demise, organizations must rapidly create new sources of value in their end-to-end customer experiences. True digital predators also must break down information and process silos and extend digital transformation initiatives to empower employees with the digital resources needed to win, serve, and retain customers.

The Internet of Things (IoT) promises to simplify and streamline our lives by automating routine tasks that distract us from our goals. This promise is based on the ubiquitous deployment of smart, connected devices that link everything from industrial control systems to automobiles to refrigerators. Unfortunately, comparatively few of the devices currently deployed have been developed with an eye toward security, and as the DDoS attacks of late October 2016 have demonstrated, this oversight can ...

What happens when the different parts of a vehicle become smarter than the vehicle itself? As we move toward the era of smart everything, hundreds of entities in a vehicle that communicate with each other, the vehicle and external systems create a need for identity orchestration so that all entities work as a conglomerate. Much like an orchestra without a conductor, without the ability to secure, control, and connect the link between a vehicle’s head unit, devices, and systems and to manage the ...

"Once customers get a year into their IoT deployments, they start to realize that they may have been shortsighted in the ways they built out their deployment and the key thing I see a lot of people looking at is - how can I take equipment data, pull it back in an IoT solution and show it in a dashboard," stated Dave McCarthy, Director of Products at Bsquare Corporation, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at @ThingsExpo, held November 1-3, 2016, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.

Unsecured IoT devices were used to launch crippling DDOS attacks in October 2016, targeting services such as Twitter, Spotify, and GitHub. Subsequent testimony to Congress about potential attacks on office buildings, schools, and hospitals raised the possibility for the IoT to harm and even kill people. What should be done? Does the government need to intervene? This panel at @ThingExpo New York brings together leading IoT and security experts to discuss this very serious topic.
