IRVINE, Calif., June 25, 2007 -- Toshiba Imaging Systems Div. has introduced what it said is the world's smallest high-definition camera head and ultracompact control unit, the IK-HD1 3-CCD (charge-coupled device) high-definition TV (HDTV) camera. At only 1.6 in. and 2.3 oz, the system is well-suited for applications in which size and weight are critical.
The 3-CCD (1/3-in. chip) interlace HD camera uses Toshiba’s 3-CCD prism block imaging technology, delivering true color 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. Toshiba’s new, hi-definition camera delivers 30 f/s for reality TV, specialty broadcast, scientific imaging and diagnostics, homeland security and industrial video inspection applications.
Features include 1920 (H) x 1080 (V) resolution, power requirements of 12 V DC and power consumption of only 10.3W. Accessories include a 4- or 15-mm 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.
