Toshiba Imaging to Introduce Ultra-Compact, Full HD Video Camera with USB 3.0 at 2018 SPIE BiOS & SPIE Photonics West

New JCS-HR5U HD Video Camera will premiere at Toshiba America’s BiOS booth #8310, Jan. 27 - 28 and Photonics West booth #4144, Jan. 30 - Feb. 2, 2018.

Toshiba America Information Systems’ (TAIS) Imaging Systems Division (Irvine, CA - www.toshibacameras.com) introduces the JCS-HR5U, an ultra-compact (approx. 1.75” x 1.75” x 3”), CMOS HD video camera designed especially for clinical microscopy and scientific imaging. The single-piece, full 1920 x 1080 high-definition video camera simultaneously displays through dual HDMI® and USB 3.0 outputs to both a monitor and PC in real-time, full motion 60 frames per second (fps), allowing live view and convenient image capture and video streaming through a PC. Outputs include USB 3.0 (1080p at 59.94 fps theoretical max.) and HDMI image output (1080p/1080i at 59.94 Hz, max.). The JCS-HR5U camera is ideal for microscopy imaging applications that require extremely low noise, high sensitivity, and exceptional color accuracy. A comprehensive settings menu allows for dynamic controls for gamma correction, edge enhancement, a 12-color matrix adjustment and other camera parameters to optimize the video display under a wide range of lighting conditions and target samples.

The new camera features 1/2.8-inch, progressive-scan, color CMOS sensor, a C-mount lens mount, and HDMI and USB 3.0 (UVC1.1 compliant YUV4:2:2). F10 standard sensitivity at 59.94 Hz, 2000lx is nearly equivalent to three-chip cameras and resolution of 750TV lines provides exceptional clarity.

Toshiba Imaging will premiere the JCS-HR5U camera at BiOS in North Hall booth #8310, Jan. 27 - 28, and at Photonics West in North Hall booth #4144, January 30 - Feb. 1, 2018, at Moscone Center, San Francisco.
