Storm Chasers Use High Definition Hidden Cameras From Toshiba
Toshiba Imaging Systems Division announces the latest broadcast applications for the tiny IK-HD1 3-chip colour video camera. TV Boy, a full service production company and industry expert in camera car-rigging and hidden camera television, has recently utilized Toshiba's compact and flexible 3CCD HD cameras for a variety of TV shows and hidden camera commercials. In-car camera rigging applications include the popular, ongoing Discovery Channel series, Storm Chasers. Other shows using Toshiba's HD cameras rigged by TV Boy are The Truth - Anti-Smoking campaign, and a variety of hidden camera TV shows and documentaries such as Dr Phil and Dr Oz and commercials, including Jet Blue and more.

According to TV Boy co-owner, Andrew Lane, "When we upgraded our standard definition cameras, we selected Toshiba Imaging's IK-HD1 3-chip HD cameras after comparing them to other HD cams on the market. The IK-HD1 image quality is unsurpassed; the contrast and color definition is really sharp, even in low-light conditions. The small camera profile is especially critical for our needs because we often mount several cameras into tight spaces in and around a vehicle. The ruggedized housing is an important feature, especially for our camera crews who film in tornado alleys. The IK-HD1 lens mount accommodates multiple lenses and, depending upon our shot list, can add up to a substantial cost savings for our clients."

A variety of selectable outputs and remote head features make Toshiba's family of HD cameras ideal for any broadcast application (sports, reality TV, 3D production, hidden camera, etc.). Toshiba Imaging's suite of five, ultra-compact, high definition cameras includes both 3CCD and the more affordable CMOS sensor models. Other applications include aviation/aerospace, machine vision, military and defence, life sciences, diagnostics and microscopy.
