Despite the growing number of high profile data breaches and the anxiety they’re causing organizations, too much information security spending still focuses on the prevention of attacks, while not enough has been done to improve (or simply create) information monitoring and response capabilities. The priority must shift from protecting information from the outside-in to securing it from the inside-out.

Security Market Gets Improved Next-Generation AI Image Sensor From SmartSens

SmartSens | July 27, 2020

SmartSens Technology today announced the SC500AI widescreen advanced image sensor, the latest product in the company's Advanced Imaging (AI) family.The majority of 5MP security camera sensors offer a 4:3 aspect ratio that is not optimized for the widescreen format of modern LCD displays. The SmartSens SC500AI addresses this shortcoming with 1620P 16:9 5MP video output in the same form factor. This next-generation sensor presents a marked improvement over previous designs — narrowing the gap between image output and natural human vision.SmartClarity Technology in the SC500AI increases the number of pixels by 20% compared to many 5MP products on the market—leveraging the full resolution of the sensor rather than cropping a 5MP 4:3 image down to 4MP to fit a 16:9 aspect ratio. This effectively reduces dark edges and distortion on both sides of the image due to uneven scaling while achieving a true 16:9 aspect ratio that includes an additional 10% of horizontal viewing area. The SC500AI achieves this crucial upgrade to match the majority of LCD displays on the market in applications such as security video and surveillance, which benefit from the sensor's low dark current under high-temperature conditions, enhancing sensitivity and reducing read noise.
