August 10, 2006, Irvine, CA--Toshiba Imaging Systems Division of Toshiba America is introducing a 2048 x 1536 pixel output resolution, 3-chip, color CCD camera. The IK-TF9C is the first mega pixel high-speed camera using 3 CCD color technology, according to Toshiba.

With a frame rate of 20 fps (full frame) and 40 fps (partial scan), this camera is suited for inspecting large surfaces with precision and high color fidelity . It also incorporates Toshiba's proprietary progressive scan technology which eliminates image-jitter, making the new camera ideal for high speed, industrial machine vision applications.

The IK-TF9C was developed with Toshiba's miniature 3CCD prism technology and designed for easy integration into any machine vision system that requires high resolution and precision color definition. The new camera is lightweight (165g) and measures only 44 mm (W) x 44 mm (H) x 78.3 mm (D). Features include a C-mount for lenses, an 8-bit RGB digital output and Camera Link compatibility for ease of operation.

The new generation IK-TF9C is based on the same advanced technology as Toshiba Imaging Systems Division's recently introduced IK-TF camera series, featuring the three chip camera IT-CCD sensor and an RGB micro prism system for accurate, computer-ready color images. It was designed primarily for industrial machine vision applications such as semiconductor inspection, food sorting and packaging, precision color web inspection, color printing and other high speed, color imaging tasks. Other applications include scientific imaging, medical diagnostics and high speed military imaging tasks.
