Miniature HDTV Camera for Tight Spaces

 |  |  |  |  |  |  |  February 2, 2007

Developed by researchers at the Fraunhofer Institute for Integrated Circuits IIS in Erlangen, Germany, this tiny little camera can capture full HDTV 1920×1080 resolution video at up to 60 frames per second.

MicroHDTV Camera

The MicroHDTV camera measures just about 1.5″ x 1.5″ x 3″ and can easily fit in confined spaces like the inside of a race car or even on a helmet. The camera features IP-based connectivity and all settings (color, white balance, frame rate, etc…) can be controlled via a remote web browser.

This miniaturization could mean that we’ll see really high-quality first person perspective coverage of sporting events in the very near future.
