COD linear image sensors can fulfill several functions in professional TV equipment. For HDTV, the required characteristics imply the development of new products. Whithin the European Eureka program, THOMSON-CSF has designed a 2048 element image sensor to be used in telecine equipement. Improved vertical transfer efficiency together with a data rate of 60 mega pixels per second are the two main features of the device.
