Aerial Video Systems has equipped ride vehicles in the newly opened Disney California Adventure’s Carsland with compact Toshiba IK-HR1S cameras, in order to capture reactions from the broadcast media participants at a preview event for the ride.

Over 150 media outlets were invited to preview Disney California Adventure’s Carsland, the newest and latest attraction which was five years in the making. Aerial Video Systems was asked to coordinate all audio/visual communications for broadcast purposes from a variety of locations at the California Adventure venue.

AVS equipped three of the Radiator Springs Racers ride vehicles with two compact Toshiba IK-HR1S cameras each. The tiny cameras were mounted on the cars to capture the action and the point-of-view reaction shots of the media guests riding in the cars.

Aerial Video Systems’ president Randy Hermes, said: ‘Toshiba’s tiny POV HD camera had all the elements we required for this big media event. After careful deliberation, we selected Toshiba’s single-body IK-HR1S camera for its broadcast compatibility, high-definition imaging, low-light and high-speed capabilities as well as its superior colour fidelity.’
