Complementary metal-oxide-semiconductor (CMOS) and charge coupled device (CCD) image sensors in high-definition TV imaging

P. Centen,    Grass Valley, Nederland BV, The Netherlands

Abstract:

The particulars of the image diagonal, signal-to-noise ratio, artifacts, modulation transfer function and aliasing in broadcast cameras in relation to imagers and imaging are explained. Examples of advances in broadcast imagers are given and the transition from charge coupled device (CCD) to complementary metal-oxide-semiconductor (CMOS) imagers is described.

Key words

broadcast camera; CCD imager; CMOS imager

13.1 Introduction

Broadcast cameras are synonymous with having the latest technology inside. Imagers must have the lowest noise, the highest sensitivity, ...
