3-chip progressive-scan full-HD camera system


Canon introduces the latest 3-CMOS camera innovation, a progressive-scan full-HD 1080p/1080i video camera featuring 3G-SDI/HD-SDI and DVI-D or USB 3.0 and DVI-D outputs and removable optical low pass filter (OLPF) for dual-mode imaging applications switchable between visible light and near-infrared visualization. IK-HD5U configuration includes advanced features particularly well suited for microscopy applications including USB 3.0 output, freeze frame and longer exposure up to 1 second (60 frames). This HD camera can be used for any HD video application as well as applications which use fluorescing agents. While the IK-HD5 is not an approved IEC60601 medical device, its imaging capabilities are well-suited as a component of surgical microscopy, endoscopy, IR inspection and defense imaging systems.
