RGB-Ir CMOS 4-Megapixel (2688x1520) Image Sensor with OmniBSI-2™ Technology

OmniVision's OV4686 is a high sensitivity CameraChip™ sensor built on a second-generation RGB-Ir color array pattern that brings clear, high quality images and video to security and smart home applications.

Built on a 2-micron OmniBSI-2™ pixel, the OV4686 delivers best-in-class low-light and infrared performance, recording color-accurate scene reproduction even in challenging lighting environments. The 1/3-inch OV4686 enables full resolution 1080p high definition (HD) images and video at 120 frames per second (fps).

The sensor's advanced color array pattern supports dual band color filters instead of traditional mechanical rotary IR filters to capture infrared images and video with minimal color aliasing.
