Toshiba Imaging Systems Division, the global leader in high definition (HD) camera technology for broadcast and entertainment, will showcase the family of High Def cameras during NAB 2010.
The smallest, 3-chip HD remote camera head available, the IK-HD1 (only 1.6 inches and weighs 2.3 oz.) also delivers the clearest, true color imagery with 1920 x 1080 output at 30 frames per second, making it ideal for broadcast applications. This tiny camera is currently being used to capture high def footage on KTLA-TV’s news helicopters. It is also used on Discovery Channel’s hit TV quiz show series, “Cash Cab”.
Toshiba Imaging’s affordably priced, new one-piece CMOS high def camera, the IKHR1S, will also be displayed along with some amazing footage captured from the edge of space. Eight of these ultra-compact (1.75 in. x 1.75 in. x 1.75 in.) HD cameras, with selectable outputs between 1080i and 720p at 50 Hz or 60 Hz video, were recently aboard four missions to the edge of the earth’s atmosphere. They were used to capture space footage for the highest, high definition commercial ever made (98,268 feet).
