This is a collection of interesting image sensors that would be suitable for digital cinema applications and the AXIOM. CMOS technology is preferred over CCDs as CCDs require far more complex ADC and interpretation/support logic. Also CCDs typically do not have the performance (FPS) at the resolutions required for digital cinema today.
This list is a work in progress. If you find a sensor that interests you feel free to either update this page or make contact with us accordingly.
Note: A central requirement for apertus° considering an image sensor is that the full datasheet for the sensor can be shared with the community without signing an NDA with the sensor's manufacturer.
