Toshiba Imaging High-Def Cameras Selected for On-Board Imaging – Maverick Helicopters Tours


Toshiba, August 13, 2013 - Irvine, CA – Toshiba Imaging Systems Division (ISD), 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, announces that the IK-HR1D, compact 1-chip CMOS, 2.1 megapixel high definition (HD) cameras have been selected for use by Maverick Helicopters (Las Vegas, NV), a division of Maverick Aviation Group.

According to John Mandernach, V.P. of Maintenance at Maverick Helicopters, “We’ve been recording personalized flights with pilot narration and guest interaction since1996. We’ve gone from providing VHS tapesto DVDs, and we now offer Blu-ray HD technology. We asked our camera supplier, InterTest (www.intertest.com - Columbia, NJ), to recommend the very best HD camera for our needs and without hesitation, they suggested Toshiba Imaging’s 1080p IK-HR1D camera for the best color, contrast, and quality available.”

Toshiba Imaging’sone-piece, 1/3-inch CMOS 1,920 x 1,080 pixel-output camera is compact and lightweight (4.3 oz.) and features digital DVI and analog RGB output. It can be easily mounted in confined spaces, making the camera ideal for Maverick Helicopters tours and other demanding imaging applications such as specialty broadcast, scientific imaging, diagnostics, and homeland security. The IK-HR1D provides full HD at60 frames per second and is suitable for imaging objects in motion with little or no artifacts and other critical imaging tasks that require precise color, sharp detail, and vivid contrast even in low-light conditions.

Toshiba America Information Systems, Inc. (TAIS), Imaging Systems Division (Irvine, CA), is one of the three business units of TAIS and is world renowned for its ultra-compact, superior color and contrast, high definition (HD) 3CCD cameras. More affordable CMOS hi-def video systems are also available and both camera suites are accompanied by Toshiba’s legendary and comprehensive tech support. Toshiba’s Imaging Systems Division provides imaging products for the security, medical, scientific and manufacturing markets. TAIS is an independent operating company owned by Toshiba America, Inc., a subsidiary of Toshiba Corporation.
