Toshiba Corp. said Friday that it will start sample shipments of the industry's first dual camera module along with a companion chip for smartphones, tablets, smartphones and other mobile devices on January 31, 2014. The new solution will not only allow to capture high-resolution images, but to support numerous never-before-possible functions or even make stereo-3D photos.

Toshiba’s new TCM9518MD product is the industry's first dual camera module to incorporate twin 0.25” optical format 5MP CMOS camera modules (5MP*2), which simultaneously outputs recorded images and depth data. The size of the module is 18mm*12mm*4.65mm. The dedicated image processing chip of the TCM9518MD measures and appends depth data to objects in the image. Used in combination with customers' applications, the module supports new photo functions, including focus and defocus, and even allows objects in photographs to be extracted and erased.

The image processing chip generates 13MP images by upscaling images taken by the twin 5MP cameras, realizing a lower module height than that of conventional 13MP camera modules. The new imaging solution also supports digital focus function, which enables to adjust the point of focus without mechanism to move lenses.

Toshiba did not reveal when the new dual-sensor module will make it to the market.
