3CCD IK-HD1 camera heads

Share this on social media:

Toshiba Imaging has released a small three-chip HD camera head (only 1.6 inches, weighing 2.3oz) for 3D applications. The 3CCD IK-HD1's ultra-compact camera head is ideal for capturing unique shots in broadcast applications and other imaging tasks where space is limited.

The flexible IK-HD1 HDTV system features 1,920 (h) x 1,080 (v), 30fps output and generation lock (genlock), making this system ideal for 3D imaging and other speciality high definition video imaging broadcast applications. The small camera head features Toshiba's 3CCD prism block technology delivering vibrant yet realistic colours, wide dynamic range and excellent detail.

The CCD camera avoids the rolling-shutter artefacts that are present on many CMOS-based cameras. A comprehensive menu allows the user to customise scene painting and adjust to optimise output for virtually any environment. The C-mount lens fixture, RS232C serial interface, and multiple outputs for HD-SDI (SMPTE 292M), analogue RGB, or Y/Pb/Pr are standard.

Accessories for the remote head system include interface cables in 3m, 6m, 10m, or 30m lengths and optional 50Hz/60Hz switchable control unit that provides either 1,080i 25 or 1,080i 30 output. Toshiba's IK-HD1 HDTV cameras have been implemented in a diverse range of 2D and 3D camera systems for a variety of broadcast applications.
