Reprinted from a JVC press release:
April 7, 2002 Photon Vision Systems, Inc. (PVS), an industry leader in designing and delivering low cost, high quality imaging sensors, supporting electronics and imaging solutions to customers worldwide, today announced the integration of its CMOS 8.3 million pixel QuadHDTV imaging sensor into JVC's Ultra High Definition TV (UDTV) color camera. This camera utilizes three of PVS's QuadHDTV sensors to deliver 25 million pixels and operates at 30 full frames per second (progressive or interlaced, selectable). The resolution of PVS's QuadHDTV sensor is four times that of High Definition Television (HDTV), with a resolution of 3840 x 2160 pixels.
PVS's QuadHDTV sensor brings new levels of resolution and speed, as well as quality, versatility and convenience to applications such as digital cinematography, studio broadcasting, demanding security and biometrics, scientific analysis, industrial quality inspection, and others.
We chose PVS's CMOS 8.3 million pixel QuadHDTV sensor to bring its unique imaging capabilities to our Ultra High Definition TV (UDTV) camera now under development because of PVS's notable technology and quantifiable competitive advantages, said Clark Yoshida, President, JVC Laboratory of America. Of all the available sensor technologies, PVS's proved superior and helps to ensure that we continue to deliver the latest innovations in presentation, broadcast, and professional equipment.
