Control units for HD camera from Toshiba

Two new camera control units (CCUs), designed to operate with the high-definition (HD) IK-HD1 remote head by Toshiba Imaging Systems Division (Irvine, CA), aim to provide video output flexibility. The IK-HD1D, features the same output as the original IK-HD1 model (1080i output via Y/Pb/Pr) but has an added DVI-I output on the rear panel. the IK-HD1E CCU is designed to output HD-SDI and Y/Pb/Pr video signals in both 50 and 60 Hz.

Two new camera control units (CCUs), designed to operate with the high-definition (HD) IK-HD1 remote head by Toshiba Imaging Systems Division (Irvine, CA), aim to provide video output flexibility.

The first, the IK-HD1D, features the same output as the original IK-HD1 model (1080i output via Y/Pb/Pr) but has an added DVI-I output on the rear panel. This versatility allows use of less costly, consumer HD control panels that accept DVI and/or HDMI signals, rather than the more costly HD-SDI panels.

The second, the IK-HD1E CCU, complements both the original IK-HD1 and the newest CCU model, the IK-HD1D; it is designed to output HD-SDI and Y/Pb/Pr video signals in both 50 and 60 Hz. This is suitable for applications where 50 Hz is standard.

Toshiba Imaging Adds Versatility to IK-HD1 High Def Camera with Two New Camera Control Units

April 21, 2009 – Irvine, CA – Toshiba Imaging Systems Division (www.cameras.toshiba.com), the global leader in high definition (HD) industrial camera technology announces the addition of two new camera control units (CCUs) designed to operate with the popular remote head, high def IK-HD1. Both new CCU models have been developed in response to customer demand for video output flexibility.

The first of these, the IK-HD1D, features the same output as the original IK-HD1model (1080i output via Y/Pb/Pr) but has an added DVI-I output on the rear panel. This versatility allows customers to use less costly, consumer HD control panels that accept DVI and/or HDMI signals, rather than the more costly HD-SDI panels.

Toshiba's second new model, the IK-HD1E CCU complements both the original IK-HD1 and the newest CCU model, the IK-HD1D. The IK-HD1E CCU is designed to output HD-SDI and Y/Pb/Pr video signals in both 50 and 60 Hz. This is ideal for clients who may have applications where 50 Hz is standard.

According to Vince Giovinco, Toshiba's National Sales Manager, "We have tripled the versatility of our flagship 3CCD high def camera, the IK-HD1, by offering two additional camera control units that work with our very successful tiny, remote head camera. The new CCU configurations will help our customers perform important HD imaging tasks in their respective scientific, diagnostic, specialty broadcast, homeland security, and industrial video and inspection sectors."
