I -- Paul Dempster director of sales for -- she was imaging systems division. Where the manufacturer. Of high definition video cameras -- Maas and CCD based imaging. What you're seeing is say demonstration. Of the -- goodness of our camera are. Single chip C must camera went up into. The upper edges of the atmosphere achieving world record altitude of 98000. 246. Feet. We were filming an advertisement for another division of Toshiba. Promoting the to -- -- monitor. We set a chair up with a balloon and captured the video. We have some representation of how this was achieved in the rigging and -- the -- the video recorders GPS systems for tracking. As really. Fascinating project that showcases won the -- high definition capabilities of our cameras. -- as well as the -- goodness in being able to perform at the edges of space. High altitude minus ninety degrees centigrade temperature. -- falling back to earth to over amok when speeds. Crash landing the chair obviously didn't survive but the cameras did. Here -- showcase seeing it. Our flagship IK HD one triple CCD camera to high definition ten ABI solution. The advantage of triple -- ECB is the color representation because we're. Able to take -- to the three channels. Have -- prison block in my pocket. This is actually the heart of our triple -- CCD camera. Each red green and blue channel are separate on the separate sensor. Which allows us to achieved exceptional color. Definition and high resolution of the 1080 I format. These cameras are used in a variety of machine vision. And it -- surgical in my across the applications where. True color representation as a requirement. Against a very rugged camera we do it mounted in a lot of point of view. Aircraft. Military. And other situations where both the rugged and high resolution I color. Solutions required.
