Sony Releases STARVIS Back-Illuminated CMOS CCTV Sensor

Better low light performance, better IR performance
Better low light performance, better IR performance

Sony’s STARVIS sensor technology increases the sensitivity of back-illuminated CMOS image sensors for security cameras. 

STARVIS increases the light utilization efficiency over a wide range of wavelengths, enhancing sensitivity not only in the visible light region but also the near infrared light region that is often used by security cameras. As a result, STARVIS achieves a sensitivity of 2,000 mV or more per 1μ㎡ pixel size, and realizes 2 or more times the sensitivity of the existing CCD image sensor (EXview HAD CCD II).
