IK-HD1 3CCD HDTV Camera
Toshiba Imaging Systems Division has released a small high-definition camera head and ultra-compact control unit, the IK-HD1 3CCD HDTV Camera. Small (1.6 inches) and lightweight, the HD colour camera system is ideal for applications where size and weight are critical.
The affordable 3CCD (1/3-inch chip) interlace HD camera uses Toshiba’s sophisticated 3CCD prism block imaging technology, delivering true colour with sharp detail and bright contrast from the remarkably small camera head. Features include a C-mount lens flange, RS 232C serial interface, and multiple outputs including HD-SDI (SMPTE 292M), analog RGB or Y/Pb/Pr, making it very easy for integration.
It delivers 30fps for reality TV, specialty broadcast, scientific imaging and diagnostics, homeland security, and industrial video inspection applications.
Other features include 1920 x 1080 resolution, power requirements of 12 V DC and power consumption of only 10.3W, making this new IK-HD1 camera system an ideal solution for a variety of imaging needs. Accessories for the camera system include a 4mm or 15mm lens and camera cables in 3, 6, 10 or 30-meter lengths. Toshiba’s new, lightweight HD camera head is easy to mount on a performer, a helmet or hat, or in a confined space or tight corner. It can also be integrated into a larger system for imaging applications that require the flexibility of a very small HDTV camera package.
