Sharp today announced that they’ve developed a 3D camera module that can be fitted in mobile devices to capture 3D videos in 720p resolution. It’s the industry’s first 3D camera module that comes with dual camera and captures two simultaneous images, one for the left eye and another one for the right.
The camera module also incorporates functions to process the captured image, which synchronizes the color and the brightness captured from both the lenses. Furthermore, Sharp was able to reduce the and weight of the 3D camera and integrate other important functions like Timing Synchronizing Processing to sync the video signal time, Optical Axis Control Processing and Fast Readout Technology to enable HD video recording.
Sharp will ship samples from July while the mass production is slated to begin this year — end of this year presumably.
