Having been appointed by Toshiba as its European Centre of Excellence for its range of broadcast products, Polecam is showcasing the latest Toshiba minicams in Hall 10.
The Toshiba IK-4K minicam is claimed to be the world’s smallest 3-chip UltraHD 4K video camera providing 8Mp 3840 x 2160 output and showing high detail with up to 1600 TV lines resolution. Video output is switchable between 4k, 1080p and 1080i formats to configure to any HD display and application, all in what the company claimed was the world’s smallest 3-chip C-Mount package
Also on the Polecam stand is the flagship Toshiba IK HD5H 3CMOS camera head, which features Toshiba’s signature Microprism technology and native HD 1080p/i resolution in every channel, twice the sensitivity and 25% improved S/N ratio in an ultra-small housing.
Finally, the all new Toshiba CCU IK-HD5E introduces the use of an adjustable Knee and Clip functionality which doubles up the dynamic range so the user can experience sharp colour quality in both the bright and the darker parts of the scene. Toshiba has added a 3G-SDI output to ensure full HD 1080p output. The IK-HD5 also includes a removable IR cut filter, a feature deemed ‘revolutionary’ by Polecam, as it opens up a whole new range of fluorescence imaging applications.
The extended resolution offered by these latest cameras needs a high resolution lens that matches their performance and on the stand visitors can also see the latest offering from Fujinon, the Fujinon TF4XA-1, which Polecam said was a perfect match for the Toshiba cameras.
Polecam’s designer Steffan Hewitt, added, “You don’t put low performance tyres on a Ferrari! Excellent quality glass on a top quality camera gives fantastic results.”
