Future Sony Cameras to Multi-Stream Video Files at Variable and Optimal Frame Rate

TNC Exclusive: In a recent patent we can clearly see Sony camera Multi-Straming Video files at Variable frame rate. Which is really amazing if true. Since the patent literature native language is Japanese so mistakes may happen from our side. Now let’s Jump to details.

With the introduction of new Variable Frame based Video Mode the Sony cameras will allow users to select Frames rates even after shooting is done.

Multi-stream Will be used while grabbing entire data. The camera sensor and image processor will Multi Stream 60 FPS and 240FPS frames simultaneously to Memory.

Optimal frame Speed Function will also going to be implemented by using the (AI) Artificial Intelligence programs to determine the Optimal frame  for a given scene.

Take a look details of the patent

User, after viewing a high frame rate image, and the image quality, if not like the impression when used as slow-motion images, the user can change the frame rate, it is necessary to re-image the high frame rate image.

Translated text

The present technology relates to a display control apparatus, a display control method, and a program that are capable of providing an interface useful for enabling a user to easily determine an optimal frame rate. According to the present technology, at least a first image and a second image which are different in frame rate or frame image quality at the same clock time are displayed at the same position in the display area of a display apparatus. The present technology can be applied to, for example, a digital camera, etc., which can capture images at a plurality of frame rates.

Application number: WO2017JP13510 20170331
Priority number(s): JP20160082089 20160415

This technology relates to a compound-eye camera module and an electronic device which make it possible to more effectively fix a plurality of monocular camera modules using a coupling member. A compound-eye camera module makes it possible to more effectively fix a plurality of monocular camera modules using a coupling member by coupling the plurality of monocular camera modules together, by fitting a camera-side positioning part for positioning, formed on a camera-side reference surface of each of the monocular camera modules, to a member-side positioning part for positioning, formed on a member-side reference surface of the coupling member. This technology is applicable, for example, to a compound-eye camera module formed by coupling a plurality of CMOS image sensors.

Sony Working on Dual-Pixel CMOS AF Tech

Sony Sensor

Sony is also working on Canon dual pixel CMOS autofocus Technology. In recent patent document surfaced over the we can spot the same dual pixel pattern scattered in the sensor.

Patent Description (Machine Translated)

Imaging devices and electronic apparatuses incorporating imaging devices are provided. An imaging device as disclosed
can include a first pixel (2PA, 2PB) and a second pixel (2X). The first and second pixels each have a first electrode (5IA,
51B, 51C), a portion of a photoelectric conversion film (81), and a portion of a second electrode (82), where the photoelectric conversion film is between the first electrode and the second electrode. The first electrode (5IA, 51B) of the first pixel has a first area, while the first electrode (51C) of the second pixel has a second area that is smaller than the first area. The first pixel can include a light shielding film (52A, 52B). Alternatively or in addition, the first pixel can be divided into first and second portions
