A new single-chip CMOS remote-head HD camera was announced by shiba America Imaging Systems today.
The new IK-HR1H (remote camera head) and IK-HR1CD (CCU) essentially has the same features as Toshiba’s current one-piece IK-HR1D model, but in a remote-head footprint and expands our HD camera lineup to target those applications for medical endoscopy (i.e. surgical endoscopes, ENT examinations, dental procedures), or anywhere a small remote head is necessary.
Utilizing a true HD 2.1 Megapixel CMOS sensor, this tiny remote head camera outputs 1080p (1920 x 1080) at 60 frames/sec via a DVI-I. The color reproduction is outstanding and with very low signal to noise ratio, the camera is superb for those applications requiring superior image quality.
Delivery of the new remote head CMOS HD camera is expected to be available in limited supply on or about August 21.
More details will be released, information above is preliminary and subject to change without notice.
