SeeSense has proved that a CS-mount version of the Toshiba IK-HR1S camera is what their market demands! SeeSense CEO Nigel Paine said “ Sales of our IK-HR1P camera have been tenfold that of the standard Toshiba IK-HR1S C-Mount original.”
“The great advantage of the CS-mount camera is the huge range of megapixel lenses that we have at our disposal” said SeeSense MD Nigel Paine.
“Many of these lenses have a wide aperture helping to improve the camera’s low light performance. Furthermore generally smaller optics means a more compact camera and lens combination.”
Sales of the first batch of CS-mount heads have proved how adaptable the camera is and how diverse their use has been.
Research: These cameras are being prepared for deployment 3 Km beneath the Antarctic ice fields to explore Lake Ellsworth.
Small diameter wide angle megapixel CS-mount lenses were selected so the glass viewports could be as small as possible to help withstand the extreme pressures at these depths.
In-Car: The camera’s compact nature and the use of quality lenses meant the IK-HR1P has been chosen as in-car camera for shooting the forthcoming programme “Finland’s Worst Drivers”.
Natural History: Recently SeeSense modified the camera further to make a miniature IR sensitive camera capable of recording stunning high definition images of woodcock and seals at night.
Gaming: The compact and unobtrusive Toshiba camera design means they are being used as POV cameras viewing roulette wheels in on-line gaming. However there are no C-mount lenses capable of obtaining an 85 degree vertical field of view for the 16:9 1/3″ 1-CMOS sensor. SeeSense research and expertise helped them source and test a suitable CS-mount alternative.
SeeSense can also fit its unique CS-mount front to Toshiba’s IK-HR1D and IK-HR2D cameras.
Despite their compact nature (only 44 x 44 x 78mm) and like the Toshiba IK-HD1 3-CCD camera, their great performance means that these little high definition cameras have a proven place alongside much larger cameras used in the Broadcast Industry.
Toshiba cameras have received a seal of approval from the BBC HD Department and are proving their worth world wide.
