Hi folks,

The full press release is available here but the bottom line is the promise that red, green and blue light will be directed to the appropriate sensor, rather than being absorbed by the Bayer matrix to prevent it getting to an inappropriate sensor, with a resultant improvement in camera senstivity. Sounds great but if they know how to do it, it's affordable and it's possible to manufacture at the pixel densities we already use then where's the hardware? :?

Bob.

Their example only appears to show separation of red, presumably a 2nd layer would be required to differentiate green and blue also, or will it only be a single layer half way house?

A similar effect could be obtained at lower manufacturing cost, by hybridising a CMY filter instead. R+B, R+G, G+B filters used would nominally double the light at each detector. Colour selectivity would be a cost of any combined colour detectors in any of these methods.
