Toshiba Imaging has launched IK-HR1S, a new camera for Grande Vitesse Systems that will be used in the digital video recording system of NASA.
Toshiba Imaging, the leader of high-definition color video imaging that offers specialized cameras for Broadcast, Automation, Scientific, and Industrial uses, has recently come up with a new camera, IK-HR1S, for Grande Vitesse Systems. Toshiba’s camera will be used in a digital video recording system for NASA by Grand Vitesse Systems.
The digital video system for NASA–GVS90002XU includes fiber channel, gigabit Ethernet connectivity, single video channel, and of course a 3CCD Toshiba HD camera.
According to Jano Avanessian, V. P. of marketing and sales at Grande Vitesse Systems, "The system we developed for NASA required that the digital video recorder be independently controlled via RS422 (Sony 9-pin port) connector for three concurrent, uncompressed recordings. Toshiba Imaging’s small and compact IK-HR1S HD camera supports HD-SDI and along with our direct DVI-D interface, we are able to bypass any form of conversion while offering both HD-SDI and 1080p 60 options side-by-side in a single camera unit. We are able to capture the high-speed content from the Toshiba HD camera and deliver it to a file-based format while maintaining the highest possible picture quality. Because Toshiba’s single-body camera is the smallest and most flexible camera on the market to provide 1080p /60fps, it was the ideal choice for our application."
Grande Vitesse Systems is the leading manufacturer of VTR/DDR managed software, high-end workstations, server systems, and hardware interfaces along with management tools.
