InvensenseInvenSense image stabilization for Hitachi camcorders : InvenSense, the world leader in motion sensing solutions for mobile devices, announced that its IDG-1000 series dual-axis gyroscope, which enables image stabilization systems in digital cameras, has been chosen by Hitachi, Ltd. for use in two models of its Blu-ray disc camcorders. The new Hitachi DZ-BD70A and DZ-BD7HA camcorders are the world's first camcorders to support Blu-ray disc technology with full high definition (1920x1080) video capture. With the mass adoption of high definition television taking place around the world, camcorders are quickly following suit with support of HD video, which offers five times more image detail compared to legacy standard definition video.

With such high resolution, even the smallest amount of natural hand shake will make a major impact on the overall quality and smoothness of the video, and will be amplified further with high zoom rate lenses. Eliminating the effects of hand shake requires electronic image stabilization using a dual-axis gyroscope. The InvenSense IDG-1000 series gyroscope, found in many popular digital still camera models, provides added benefits for camcorders that have video disc recorders and hard disk drives. The MEMS design of the IDG-1000 gyroscope inherently rejects the coupling of vibration from the motors of the video disc recorders and hard disk drives, so true hand motion can be precisely measured. Additionally, the design of the IDG-1000 gyroscope can withstand high shock from falls in excess of 10,000G, making it the most reliable solution for handheld devices, like camcorders, where drops are prone to occur. Based on InvenSense's proprietary and patented Nasiri-Fabrication process, the IDG-1000 is an integrated dual-axis (X- & Y- axis) solution using proven silicon technology resulting in the smallest foot print with the market's highest shock tolerance, lowest cross-axis noise specification and best overall tested reliability.

"The Hitachi DZ BD70A and BD7HA are the first-of-their-kind camcorders with Blu-ray disc technology, direct hard disk recording capabilities and the most advanced electronic image stabilization system," said Takahiro Nakano, General Manager of Hitachi Camcorder Engineering Dept. "InvenSense's dual-axis gyroscope provides the most precise motion sensing solution and was able to satisfy the stringent requirements for our image stabilization system."

"We are very pleased that our InvenSense IDG-1000 gyroscope was found to be the best to meet all of the technical and performance requirements for Hitachi's advanced high-definition camcorders," said Steve Nasiri, InvenSense's President and CEO. "As the only motion sensor company focused exclusively on serving the needs of the consumer market, we are continuously striving to exceed market requirements with the best performance, most reliable and highest quality gyroscope solutions."

InvenSense - Motion sensing
InvenSense, Inc. is the world leader in motion sensing solutions for mobile devices. The innovative Nasiri-Fabrication process is the patented fabless MEMS technology developed by InvenSense to dramatically reduce the cost of producing inertial sensors. The company's fabrication technology and gyroscope sensor products are essential to emerging mass-market applications such as image stabilization, mobile navigation, location-based services and smart user interfaces that use hand motion and gesture-based commands. InvenSense was honored by Frost and Sullivan with the 2006 Product Innovation of the Year award for its IDG product line and Nasiri-Fabrication technology. Founded in 2003, InvenSense is a venture capital funded company with lead investors that include Artiman Ventures, Partech International and Qualcomm Ventures. InvenSense corporate offices are located at 1197 Borregas Avenue, Sunnyvale, Calif.

Hitachi
Hitachi, Ltd., headquartered in Tokyo, Japan, is a leading global electronics company with approximately 384,000 employees worldwide. Fiscal 2006 (ended March 31, 2007) consolidated revenues totalled 10,247 billion yen ($86.8 billion). The company offers a wide range of systems, products and services in market sectors including information systems, electronic devices, power and industrial systems, consumer products, materials and financial services.
