See how InVisage's HDR sensor will improve smartphone filmmaking

It’s been over five years since we heard from InVisage, a company developing a new kind of smartphone sensor with higher dynamic range and zero rolling shutter. It just produced a short film called Prix using a prototype chip to show exactly how the tech works. As a reminder, InVisage developed a photosensitive nano-coating it calls QuantumFilm that works differently than silicon. It claims that the material has “higher photosensitivity and electron sensitivity per pixel,” which makes it react more like film than a typical CMOS sensor. It’s also fast enough to instantly switch on and off, allowing the use of a global instead of a rolling shutter.
