IMX500 key benefits

Addressing privacy concerns

Ensure your customer's personal privacy, and ensure your compliance with privacy regulations, by outputting the processed image metadata only

Small footprint

Sony's one chip solution means a small footprint and ultra low power consumption

High performance

Fast raw data processing with on-chip DSP (30 fps+)

Save bandwidth

Maximize edge resources by transmitting results only, not outputting the raw image stream unless explicitly requested

Low latency

On-chip AI preprocessing and inference avoid round trips with large volumes of image data to a remote server
