Movie comparing RGBW and RGB images The side-by-side images show the L3 image pipeline developed for two sensors.  On the left is a conventional RGB sensor, and on the right an RGBW sensor.  The movie shows the L3 processing results at a series of light levels. You can use the slider to compare the renderings at different levels (the level is shown at the right; make sure your window is wide enough to see the cd/m2 level). The movie illustrates that RGBW sensor coupled with the L3 pipeline produces a substantial advantage at low light levels with very little or no loss at high light levels. Equivalent image quality is obtained when the light level for the RGB is 3.5 times the light level for the RGBW.
