Toshiba Imaging (www.toshibacameras.com)
, a leader in high definition (HD) color video imaging, was chosen by Aerial Video Systems (AVS - www.aerialvideo.com)
to provide six small, one-piece, point-of-view (POV) cameras for a recent media event. Over 150 media outlets were invited to preview Disney California Adventure’s “Carsland”
, the newest and latest attraction which was five years in the making. Aerial Video Systems was asked to coordinate all audio/visual communications for broadcast purposes from a variety of locations at the California Adventure venue. AVS equipped three of the ‘Radiator Springs Racers’ ride vehicles with two compact Toshiba IK-HR1S cameras each, in order to capture reactions from the broadcast media participants. The tiny cameras were mounted on the cars to capture the action and the point-of-view reaction shots of the media guests riding in the cars. The images were transmitted live via microwave to AVS’ broadcast truck where they were recorded, then presented to the respective networks to be broadcast later in their news reports.
Aerial Video Systems’ president Randy Hermes notes, “Toshiba’s tiny POV HD camera had all the elements we required for this big media event. After careful deliberation, we selected Toshiba’s single-body IK-HR1S camera for its broadcast compatibility, high-definition imaging, low-light and high-speed capabilities as well as its superior color fidelity.”
