Miniature cameras used for feature film video capture

Share this on social media:

Experts at 24frame.com, a California-based company specialising in HD video playback for the motion picture and television industry, have selected Toshiba Imaging Systems Division's high definition IK-HD1 cameras to capture day/night moving plates to be used for feature film projection playback.

According to Robert Chartier, CEO of 24frame.com: 'We tried using several other HD cameras to shoot background, day/night plates for HD playback later, and found that the miniature IK-HD1 cameras were superior – they are surprisingly accurate, even at night. The quality of the plates met or surpassed the image quality required for projection onto an 80-foot feature film screen exceedingly well.'

Toshiba Imaging's suite of five, ultra-compact, high definition cameras includes both 3CCD and the more affordable CMOS sensor models. A variety of selectable outputs and remote head features make the family of HD cameras ideal for any broadcast application. Other applications include life sciences, aviation/aerospace, machine vision, military and defence, diagnostics and microscopy.
