OmniVision Group has announced that it will be the first to ship 4K HDR camera modules for laptops. The OV08X is the industry’s only 0.7µm 9.2MP image sensor that can be used for the next generation of thinner and lighter notebooks.

According to the official statement, OV08X can be used in laptops equipped with 16:10 aspect ratio displays with a resolution of 1920 x 1200 pixels. The vertical size of the sensor is only 4 mm.

“Users no longer need to rely on external webcams for high-quality video calls. The OV08X image sensor enables designers of high-end and flagship laptops to use high-definition 4K cameras to create the thinnest devices,” said Akim Chen, Product Specialist at OmniVision Group.

The OV08X image sensor supports auto-framing, keeping the user centered on the screen during video calls, and the field of view is adjustable. The sensor also supports human presence detection and provides contactless login and auto-lock. The sensor has a built-in low power image signal processor that provides light sensitive mode and ultra low power consumption to maximize battery life.

The sensor is based on OMNIVISION PureCel Plus-S composite crystal technology and supports 4K at 30 fps. The sensor will be put into mass production in December 2022.

Linux has become dangerous one of the cores of

The Linux kernel 6.0 was recently released and version 6.1 is scheduled to be released soon. However, many users have not switched to it yet. And, as it turned out, one of the old kernels has a problem that affects the video subsystem. It can physically damage the display. This concerns the Linux kernel 5.19.12, but in version 5.19.13 the problem was solved.

Linux has become dangerous - one of the cores of the system can physically disable the laptop display, although not on all models

The failure only affected laptops with Intel processors that were running a distribution based on the Linux 5.19.12 kernel. The problem seemed to be related to the Intel graphics driver, which caused the display to flash rapidly in white. One of the engineers who is involved in the development of the core of the system explained that it was an incorrect delay in powering up the LCD panel. Because of this, the display could fail, because it is simply not designed to work in this mode for a long time.

It is noted that the problem manifested itself on laptops, where the screens were directly connected to the integrated video core. It was also relevant for models with Nvidia Optimus and some models with Radeon graphics (if available).

It is noted that laptops with AMD processors, conventional and hybrid, are not affected by this problem. Also, the developers advised not to install the “problem” update for those who have not had time to update.

And earlier it became known about a new problem with Windows 11 22H2.
