Aptina, a global provider of intelligent imaging solutions, is now shipping the AR1011HS, the first 1-inch, 4K (3840 x 2160 pixel) image sensor for security and surveillance markets. The AR1011HS is a 10.8 megapixel, 1-inch optical format image sensor that combines high-resolution imaging with a large 3.4-µm DR-Pix™ (Dynamic Response-pixel) that dynamically adapts to deliver superior low-light performance. At full-resolution, the AR1011HS offers 60 frames-per-second (fps) video; nearly double that of competitive sensors, while jumping to 120 fps for 1080p HD mode. For cameras that require a smaller optical format, Aptina introduces the AR1820HS, an 18 megapixel, 1/2-inch optical format image sensor. The AR1820HS offers a robust summing mode in 1080p HD that jumps the SNR (signal-to-noise ratio) by 6dB while lowering the overall operating power. Both the AR1011HS and the AR1820HS image sensors deliver a powerful portfolio of full resolution, 4K and 1080p HD video modes that do not sacrifice WDR (Wide Dynamic Range) and stunning image quality.

“Arecont Vision is pleased to be the first to demonstrate the Aptina AR1011HS 4K image sensor in an ultra-high definition (UHD) IP security camera,” said Raul Calderon, Senior Vice President at Arecont Vision. “Our newest 4K camera utilizing the Aptina AR1011HS is a high-performance addition to our portfolio of megapixel imaging technology that will help us continue to lead the market in professional security applications and products.”
Implementation of these high-performance, 4K image sensors will dramatically lower the total cost of ownership for any surveillance or security solution. Aptina 4K image sensors enable solution providers to eliminate mechanical sub-systems for PTZ (Pan Tilt Zoom) and offer high-resolution ePTZ (electronic PTZ) that doesn’t sacrifice image quality or wide field of view. In addition to these high-resolution image sensors, Aptina offers a portfolio of security and surveillance imaging solutions including image sensors, co-processors and SOCs (system on a chip) for network and CCTV (closed-circuit television) cameras.
“Aptina will continue to innovate imaging solutions for surveillance customers,” said Sandor Barna, Chief Technology Officer at Aptina. “Delivering full resolution and 4K video in a variety of optical formats allows surveillance developers to increase the image quality, improve the overall reliability and lower the total cost of ownership of their security solutions.”
Both the AR1011HS and the AR1820HS are available today. More information on Aptina security and surveillance solutions can be found at: http://www.aptina.com/solutions/surveillance.jsp
Aptina will host customers and partners during ISC West 2014 in Las Vegas from April 2-4 at the Venetian Hotel, Veronese Level, Room 2401A. Arecont Vision will demonstrate the Aptina 4K image sensor technology at its ISC West booth #8045 in the Sands Convention Center.
