Toshiba Imaging Introduces Ultra-Small, 3-Chip CMOS

Remote-Head HD Camera

October 23, 2013 - Irvine, CA - Toshiba Imaging Systems Division (ISD) (Toshiba Imaging - www.toshibacameras.com), a division of Toshiba America Information Systems, Inc., and leading manufacturer of ultra-compact high definition (HD) and high resolution CCD and CMOS video cameras, introduces the IK-HD3H, an ultra-small, 2.1 megapixel,1080p 3-chip CMOS HD video camera. The new, feature-rich camera is the first in a series of two CMOS remote-head HD cameras, both interchangeable with Toshiba Imaging's new IK-HD3D controller. With 920 x 1080 digital DVI, 59.94Hz output, the compact IK-HD3H camera delivers up to 1,000 TV lines resolution.


The camera's unprecedented user controls offer an expanded range of adjustments for precise color control, high resolution, increased sensitivity and advanced noise reduction technology. Other features include a binning mode providing a 4X increase in sensitivity without increased noise, image flip and mirror, a gen lock for 3D and multi-camera setups, and selectable output modes between 1080i and 1080p. The RS232 remote control function combines with a convenient C-mount lens mount making the IK-HD3D video camera ideal for sophisticated and diverse imaging applications, such as surgical microscopy, endoscopy, aerospace, and industrial video applications.

The two piece, 2.1 megapixel camera system is easy to integrate into new or existing applications that require 1080p, 59.94 Hz output and superior color imaging with sharp contrast.

Toshiba Imaging's IK-HD3H remote-head camera is optimal for 3D imaging tasks, microscopy, scientific imaging, diagnostics, specialty broadcast, and other applications where exceptional video performance, increased sensitivity, and small package size is required.

Universal Robots - Collaborative Robot Solutions

Universal Robots is a result of many years of intensive research in robotics. The product portfolio includes the UR5 and UR10 models that handle payloads of up to 11.3 lbs. and 22.6 lbs. respectively. The six-axis robot arms weigh as little as 40 lbs. with reach capabilities of up to 51 inches. Repeatability of +/- .004" allows quick precision handling of even microscopically small parts. After initial risk assessment, the collaborative Universal Robots can operate alongside human operators without cumbersome and expensive safety guarding. This makes it simple and easy to move the light-weight robot around the production, addressing the needs of agile manufacturing even within small- and medium sized companies regarding automation as costly and complex. If the robots come into contact with an employee, the built-in force control limits the forces at contact, adhering to the current safety requirements on force and torque limitations. Intuitively programmed by non-technical users, the robot arms go from box to operation in less than an hour, and typically pay for themselves within 195 days. Since the first UR robot entered the market in 2009, the company has seen substantial growth with the robotic arms now being sold in more than 50 countries worldwide.
