U sing cameras in-car has always been
problematic. Most importantly, the
size of camera is crucial: sit a camera
operator in the vehicle with a camcorder and
the natural sense of intimacy is lost. Mount the
camcorder within the cockpit and it is sure to obscure the
driver’s view of the road.
The alternative is miniature cameras. Toshiba’s miniature
industrial cameras have been a favourite among
broadcasters, with their robust construction and reliable
performance. Used as specialist lightweight heads on
super-long carbon fi bre poles or mounted to motorbikes,
they have a reputation for delivering in any environment.

issues of miniature cameras, such as noise interference
and lack of support for broadcast formats, have been
overcome. 66 | KITPLUS - THE TV-BAY MAGAZINE: ISSUE 95 NOVEMBER 2014
