Mini camera head takes up less than 2.5 in.3

NOVEMBER 9, 2009--The miniature remote CMOS IK-HR1H camera head can be configured with either of two camera control units (CCUs): the IK-HR1CD and IK-HR1CS.

NOVEMBER 9, 2009--The miniature remote CMOS IK-HR1H camera head can be configured with either of two camera control units (CCUs): the IK-HR1CD and IK-HR1CS. The camera head is approximately 1.18 x 1.37 x 1.41 in. and weighs 1.76 oz (without lens). The 1/3-in. CMOS sensor is designed for imaging applications where space is critical and the remote head can be linked to the CCU via a standard power over Camera Link (PoCL) cable. The IK-HR1CD CCU offers a DVI-I with 720p/1080i/1080p; the IK-HR1CS CCU features an HD-SDI with 720p/1080i video signal outputs. With optional auto and manual white balance controls plus optional auto and manual electronic shuttering, the cameras are suited for scientific/life sciences, microscopy, and diagnostic imaging as well as industrial video/inspection.

PRESS RELEASE

Toshiba Imaging's New, High-Def, Miniature
CMOS Remote Head Camera

Newest members of Toshiba's HD Camera Suite -- the Remote IK-HR1H with two camera control units and output versions

Irvine, CA - Toshiba Imaging Systems Division (www.cameras.toshiba.com), the global leader in high-definition (HD) video imaging, announces the newest camera models in their ever-expanding HD camera suite, the miniature remote CMOS IK-HR1H camera head. It can be configured with either of two camera control units (CCUs), the IK-HR1CD and the IK-HR1CS. The ultra-small, lightweight remote camera head is approximately 1.18 in. x 1.37 in. x 1.41 in. and weighs only 1.76 oz. (without lens). Toshiba's 1/3-in. CMOS sensor is ideal for imaging applications where space is critical and the remote head can be linked to the CCU via a standard, power over camera link (PoCL) cable.

Two output versions of the IK-HR1H are available to deliver added flexibility; the IK-HR1CD camera control unit offers a DVI-I with 720p/1080i/1080p and the IK-HR1CS CCU features an HD-SDI with 720p/1080i video signal outputs. With the optional auto and manual white balance controls plus optional auto and manual electronic shuttering, these tiny, new cameras are well-suited for scientific/life sciences, microscopy, and diagnostic imaging. Other applications that require a small, flexible, high performance HD camera include specialty broadcasting, reality TV and sports, microscopy, industrial video/inspection, and aviation.
