Toshiba Imaging Systems Division has released the IK-HD5, a progressive-scan, 2.1 megapixel, 3CMOS camera for colour-critical applications. The CMOS video camera features 3G-SDI/HD-SDI and DVI-D outputs and a removable optical low-pass filter (OLPF) for dual-mode imaging applications in visible light and near-infrared spectrums. Other features include expanded menu functions for red filter IR mode and approximately 3dB increased sensitivity in the near IR.
The IK-HD5 camera’s three CMOS HD sensors are ideal for use as a component in critical video tasks including endoscopy, surgical microscopy, ophthalmology, infrared inspection and defence imaging systems. Other applications include a variety of inspection and machine vision operations.
The 1,920 x 1,080 full HD camera operates at 60fps, switchable between visible and infrared modes. Based on the company’s three-chip prism colour technology, the model is Toshiba Imaging’s first camera to include the 3G-SDI output format. It also has a binning mode for up to four times increased sensitivity, an image flip and mirror function, five user-configurable settings files, and up to 1,000 TV lines resolution. With the C-mount lens mount and remote control access via RS232, the IK-HD5 is easy to integrate into new and existing vision systems.
