Samsung has recently unveiled two groundbreaking sensors, the ISOCELL Vizion 63D and ISOCELL Vizion 931, which are set to revolutionize the realms of Augmented Reality (AR), Virtual Reality (VR), and smartphone technology. These sensors bring distinct capabilities that are aimed at enhancing the depth and image capturing experience in various virtual and augmented reality applications.
The ISOCELL Vizion 63D is a notable advancement in the field of 3D Time-of-Flight (ToF) sensors. Featuring a 1/6.4-inch sensor size and 3.5µm pixels, this sensor stands out for its high precision in measuring depth and distance.
Samsung introduces new sensors to enhance AR/VR experiences
It is capable of capturing images at QVGA (320×240) resolution at 30 frames per second and VGA (640×480) videos. What sets the Vizion 63D apart is its industry-first integrated depth-sensing ISP, which eliminates the need for a separate chip and cuts down power consumption by 40% compared to its predecessors. The sensor's high light absorption and low noise, attributable to its Backside Scattering Technology, further enhance its performance.
Additionally, the ISOCELL Vizion 63D offers two modes - flood and spot. The flood mode focuses on higher resolution at shorter distances, while the spot mode extends the sensor’s range, albeit with a compromise in resolution. This flexibility allows for optimized performance based on specific situational needs.
