CMOSIS, the firm that develops image sensors for the Leica M, has announced a 48MP CMOS sensor named CMV50000. The sensor captures videos at 8K resolution at 30fps and supports advanced noise reduction.
In order to deliver a faster output, the 36.43 x 27.62 mm sensor uses 22 12-bit sub-LVDS data outputs.
The sensor comes equipped with an HDR mode, supported by an odd/even row dual-exposure operation, combined with a black level clamping which will help it deliver advanced noise-reduction.
CMOSIS claims the sensor is suitable for use in TV broadcast and video cameras. At present, the monochrome version of the CMV5000 sensor is available for sampling to camera manufacturers at a price of $3,800. However, a colour option is expected to be available by the end of the year at the same price....
