Joint Solution Combines OmniVisions Wafer-Level CameraCubeChip™ Technology With Almalences Unique SuperResolution Algorithm to Provide Highest Quality Images of Smallest Parts of Anatomy
OmniVision Technologies, Inc., a leading developer of advanced digital imaging solutions, and Almalence Inc., one of the worlds leaders in computational imaging, today announced at CompaMed a joint solution that eliminates the conflict between camera size and resolution found in current medical imaging solutions. This is accomplished by dramatically increasing the resolution of images captured from the smallest parts of the anatomy during endoscopic and catheter procedures across all disciplines, such as neurology, ophthalmology, otolaryngology, cardiology, orthopedology, gynecology and urology. The solution is based on OmniVisions OVM6948 CameraCubeChip™—the worlds smallest fully packaged, wafer-level camera module measuring 0.65mm x 0.65mm, with a z-height of just 1.158mm. Working in partnership with OmniVision, Almalence pre-tuned its SuperResolution algorithm, which is currently the de-facto standard for smartphone cameras, effectively increasing the OVM6948s backside-illuminated resolution by 1.5x to 300x300 and boosting its signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) by up to 8dB for a total of about 42dB.
