Toshiba Imaging Presents World’s Smallest 3-Chip UltraHD 4K Video Camera at NAB 2015




April 8, 2015 – Toshiba America Information Systems, Inc.’s Imaging Systems Division (www.toshibacameras.com) will present the world’s smallest (1.28” x 1.51” x 1.61”), lightweight (approx. 2.5 oz.), 3-CMOS UltraHD video camera at the NAB Show, April 13 - 16, 2015, Las Vegas Convention Center, Las Vegas, Nevada. The new IK-4K (3840 x 2160) UltraHD 4K camera delivers world-class 59.94Hz performance from the smallest package possible. It provides up to 1600 TV lines of resolution at real-time frame rates, making it ideal for live-event broadcast applications.  Other features include five, user-programmable scene files, Toshiba’s comprehensive settings menu with 12 color matrix adjustment for optimal color adjustment, 4x 3G-SDI, 59.94Hz, UltraHD output, remote control via RS 232 and a standard C-mount lens mount. The two-piece, remote-head, camera system design combines Toshiba Imaging’s proprietary prism block technology and advanced image processing capabilities to deliver unmatched color accuracy and exceptional resolution with fine edge details. The camera head can be located from 3 to 15m (10 to 50ft) from the camera control module, supporting a wide range of camera rigging options. The extraordinary camera also features switchable formats from UltraHD 4K at 50/59.94 Hz, to 1080p and 1080i.

When operating in HD1080p/i modes, the camera’s unique capability eliminates the need for video distribution amplifiers (DAs).  It can function as a built-in DA providing four simultaneous 1920 x 1080 50/59.94Hz video streams. This provides an enormous advantage in mobile broadcast studios and other vehicle-mounted camera applications where power is always at a premium. The camera needs only one 12VDC power input to drive the four HD outputs to feed monitors, recorders, reference displays, or wi-fi transmitters.
