Color CMOS 720p (1280x720) HD PureCel™ Image Sensor

The OV9734 is an ultra-compact and power efficient CameraChip™ image sensor designed for slim notebooks, tablets, handsets, and other devices that require a thin bezel. Built on OmniVision's PureCel™ technology, the OV9734 CameraChip™ delivers premium quality images and video, while consuming significantly less power than previous generation image sensors.

OmniVision's 1/9-inch OV9734 is capable of capturing crisp 720p HD video at 30 frames per second (fps) or VGA video at 45 fps, while consuming approximately 25 percent less power than the previous generation 720p sensor. Additionally, the OV9734 meets the video quality specifications for popular video conferencing platforms.

To fit ultra-thin bezel devices, the OV9734 comes in a compact package that can meet 2.5 mm z-height and is 47 percent smaller in y-dimension compared to the previous generation 720p sensor.
