Superior choice of lenses: The Toshiba IK-HD1 minicam has an increasingly wider range of C-mount lenses available. This provides huge benefits compared to cameras such as the Panasonic POVCAM, which have integrated zoom lenses and require external wide angle adapters to be screwed to the front of the camera housing. The lenses available for the Toshiba IK-HD1 camera, such as the new megapixel Meuser Optik 3.5mm lens, offer vastly superior resolution with lower image distortion performance than other minicams with integrated lenses.
Global shutter : The Toshiba IK-HD1 minicam has a 3 CCD image sensor with global shutter. This means that it does not suffer from motion artifacts such as Wobble/ jello effect, Skew, Smear or Partial Exposure, as exhibited by a CMOS based camera such as the Panasonic POVACM or GoPro HD Hero2. This means that the Toshiba IK-HD1 camera is ideal for dealing with high levels of vibrations and scenes containing areas of fast moving objects. This makes the camera the ideal choice for in-car or any on-board applications.
Robust and highly reliable: We have used the Toshiba IK-HD1 minicam for a wide range of demanding filming applications, from the freezing cold to boiling hot conditions. In off-road cars, planes and helicopters to name but a few. The camera has consistently performed to provide stunning footage with the ability to cope with all of these physically demanding scenarios.
Increased light sensitivity: The Toshiba IK-HD1 minicam is more sensitive to light than other CMOS minicams, such as the Panasonic POVCAM, Sony HXR-MC1P or Go Pro HD Hero cameras. This makes it the perfect choice for filming in low levels of light, where other cameras may struggle.
Various camera cable lengths up to 30m: The Toshiba IK-HD1 minicam system comprises of two parts, the camera head and CCU. These are joined together by a detachable multi-core cable, which is available in lengths of 3m, 6m, 10m and 30m. This gives you the choice and ability to use the correct length of cable, depending on your filming requirements.
Small form factor: At only 65 grams, the tiny 1.6” camera head goes anywhere you need it.
External reference input: This enables the camera to be used in any multi-camera situation, where being able to genlock the camera is essential for accurate lip-sync and live cutting between other line cameras.
RS 232C serial interface: This allows the Toshiba IK-HD1 camera to be remotely controlled by third-party controllers or even an iphone, running our custom control software. All CCU functions including paint, gain, shutter etc can be controlled to match cameras and set correct levels.
Ideal for 3D: Due to their small form factor, external reference inputs and choice of lenses, these minicams are ideally suited for 3D stereo rigs.
