TrueSense Imaging’s sensors are behind the Ikonoskop and Digital Bolex cameras. Traditionally known for their CCDs, the company is now stepping into CMOS for the first time.

The increase in CMOS sensor speed is what makes HDSLR video possible. But according to scientists in academic image sensor technology fields, fabrication processes used to make CMOS imagers are lagging 2 or 3 generations behind fabrication methods used in integrated circuits (IC) and solid-state memory – so we can expect some huge leaps in the very near future.
