IRVINE, Calif., 21 April 2014. The Toshiba America Imaging Systems Division in Irvine, Calif., is introducing the IK-HD5 progressive-scan, full HD 1080p/1080i, 2.1 Megapixel, 3CMOS camera for color-critical applications in defense imaging systems.

The electro-optical CMOS video camera has 3G-SDI/HD-SDI and DVI-D outputs and a removable optical low-pass filter (OLPF) for dual-mode imaging applications in visible light and near-infrared (IR) spectra.

Other has include expanded menu functions for red filter IR mode and about 3dB increased sensitivity in the near IR.

The IK-HD5 camera's three CMOS HD sensors are for use as a component in critical high-def video tasks including defense imaging systems, endoscopy, surgical microscopy, ophthalmology, and infrared inspection. Other applications include inspection and machine vision operations.

The 1920-by-1080 HD camera operates at 60 frames per second, switchable between visible and infrared modes. Based on the company's proprietary 3-chip prism color technology, the IK-HD5 includes the 3G-SDI output format.

It also has a binning mode for to 4x increased sensitivity, an image flip and mirror function, 5 user-configurable settings files, and to 1,000 TV lines resolution. With the convenient C-mount lens mount and remote control access via RS232, the IK-HD5 is easy to integrate into and existing vision systems.
