February 20, 2019 - e-con Systems Inc., an embedded camera solutions company, announced the launch of Hyperyon (Ordering part code: e-CAM22_USB), the 2 MP Ultra low light HDR USB UVC camera with built-in H.264/MJPEG compression based on SONY STARVIS series 1/2.8” IMX290 CMOS image sensor.
Being Socionext Camera Ecosystem Partner, e-con Systems has close working relationship with Socionext right from its first reference design kit Tania. e-con Systems has now worked with Socionext to develop Hyperyon camera leveraging the advanced features of Socionext ISP for capturing high-quality images under low light conditions such as Three-Dimensional Noise Reduction (3DNR) and the WDR technology. Hyperyon has been fine-tuned for achieving image quality under various lighting conditions including near darkness from IMX290 sensor with combination of Socionext ISP which has a built-in HEVC encoder, allowing H.264-quality images to be transmitted at half bit-rate.
The IMX290 sensor used in Hyperyon is SONY STARVIS® Series 1/2.8” type image sensor with 2.13 million effective pixels. By bringing out the best low light performance of Sony IMX290 sensor in combination with Socionext ISP, Hyperyon camera produces best-in-class images in nearly absolute darkness conditions of 0.002 Lux. Hyperyon is also optimized for Near Infrared (NIR) making it suitable for NIR imaging. Combined with 3DOL HDR technology, Hyperyon camera is an ideal camera for 24/7 surveillance applications.
