New Toshiba Dual Camera Module Enables Simultaneous Output of Images and Depth Data
Toshiba will start sample shipments of "TCM9518MD", a dual camera module featuring twin 1/4 inch optical format 5-megapixel CMOS camera modules (5 megapixels x 2 arrays), which simultaneously outputs recorded images and depth data.
Designed for application in smartphones, tablets and other mobile devices, the dedicated image processing LSI of the "TCM9518MD" measures and appends depth data to objects in the image. Used in combination with applications, the module supports new photo functions, including focus and defocus, and even allows objects in photographs to be extracted and erased.
The image processing LSI generates 13-megapixel images by upscaling images taken by the twin 5-megapixel cameras, realizing a lower module height than that of conventional 13 megapixel camera modules.
Toshiba will start sampling the module on January 31.
