Toshiba to Exhibit World’s Smallest HDTV Hi-Def Camera System at NAB Show
Toshiba may have lost the HD format battle, but may win the compact HD video camera war! We’re impatient to see what they release at the NAB.
Toshiba Imaging (www.cameras.toshiba.com), a leader in advanced 3CCD color video imaging, will showcase the IK-HD1 3CCD HDTV Camera at the National Association of Broadcasters (NAB) in Las Vegas, NV, April 14-17, 2008 at Norpix Booth #SL10410 and Telemetrics Booth #C6933. The world’s smallest HD camera head (only 1.6 inches, weighing 2.3 oz.) plus the ultra-compact control unit makes the IK-HD1 ideal for broadcast applications and other imaging tasks where space is limited.
The sophisticated and affordable IK-HD1 HDTV system utilizes Toshiba’s proprietary 3CCD prism block technology, delivering true color, bright contrast and extraordinary detail from the small cam head. Features include 1920 (H) x 1080 (V) resolution at 30 frames per second making this system highly suitable for reality TV, specialty broadcast, sports, news, commercials and many other high definition video imaging applications.
A C-mount lens flange and RS232C serial interface and multiple outputs for HD-SDI (SMPTE 292M), analog RGB, or Y/Pb/Pr are standard. Accessories for the system include a 4 mm or 15 mm lens and camera cables in 3-, 6-, 10- or 30-meter lengths. Toshiba’s IK-HD1 HDTV cameras have been recently used on the New American Gladiators and Cash Cab TV shows. For more information, please visit www.cameras.toshiba.com.
