HD video: Coming to a cell phone near you

June 6, 2006

Micron Technology announced last month that it has built an 8-megapixel image sensor in a 1- to 2.5in optical format, the standard size for mainstream digital cameras.

The sensor is intended for high-resolution stills, fast image capture and HD video.

Used in continuous-shot mode for digital still cameras, the sensor is capable of bursting more than 10 pictures a second at full 8-megapixel resolution and more than 30 pictures a second at 2-megapixel resolution.

The sensor will enable a digital camera to capture and playback HD video, which equates to shooting video at 30fps in 720p (progressive) format.
