Prosumer Image Sensor Applications

High Resolution, High-Speed Design Expertise

Professional 4K and 8K resolution standards, now dominant in the digital cinema and prosumer markets, are making their way into mass-market applications. Pushing beyond today’s 4K systems, while addressing the needs of the consumer market, requires the development of new sensor architectures that support extreme scalability.

Forza CMOS image sensors have helped create what is now a pervasive broadcast and digital cinematography sensor market. Forza has designed a number of CMOS image sensors for digital cinema cameras, each pushing the state-of-the-art in digital color sensors.
