Toshiba Introduces Ultra Low-light, Color Video Camera


Toshiba Imaging Systems Division, a division of Toshiba America, introduces the IK-1000, an extreme low-light, color video camera. The imaging system features Toshiba’s new, proprietary electron-multiplying CCD technology, making it ideal for all ultra low-light applications. The incoming signal is multiplied by a factor of one thousand, allowing a minimum illumination with full color reproduction down to 0.25 mlux (1/1000 lux) in color at 50 IRE.

Toshiba’s electron multiplying technology results in a super-sensitive camera that is 1000 times more sensitive than a conventional color CCD. The ˝ inch CCD features a high resolution 658 x 496 pixel sensor, a built-in electronic shutter to 1/2000 sec. and accepts C-mount lenses. Developed in response to customer requests for a camera that could reproduce color images in starlight, underwater and other lowlight conditions, the compact, ultra-sensitive color camera measures 58 mm (W) x 58.4 mm (H) x 133 mm (D).
