Toshiba IK-4K minicam with Fujinon UHD 4mm prime lens “An integral part of shooting the shows was that we were able to get intimate shots of Ed and see detailed close ups of him playing the show,” said Director Paul. “Ed played entirely alone, the fi rst time anyone has played entirely solo at Wembley Stadium, but as ever he used a loop station so that he can build the musical parts to create a sound far bigger than simply one man and a guitar. Capturing this element of his act was a crucial aspect of the fi lm for both the myself and Ed, and Polecam Systems was able to supply us a tiny 4K minicam solution (the Toshiba IK-4K) via ACS UK that could not only be easily integrated into Ed’s onstage set up, but that could give us an incredible shot of Ed’s loop pedals at an unrivalled resolution for a minicam of this nature.” Matt Coyde, ACS UK Sales Director: “When JA Digital approached us for a 4K minicam solution the Toshiba IK-4K ticked all the boxes. We’ve had great feedback and based on the success of the camera’s performance at the Ed Sheeran concert we are now looking into buying further units to satisfy our clients’ growing demands for 4K solutions.” The Toshiba IK-4K minicam is the world’s smallest 3-chip UltraHD 4K video camera providing 8Mp 3840 x 2160 output and showing extraordinary detail with up to 1600 TV lines resolution. Video output is switchable between 4k, 1080p and 1080i formats to confi gure to any HD display and application - all in the world’s smallest 3-chip C-Mount package. Complementing the Toshiba 4K camera was a Fujinon TF4-XA1 UHD 4mm lens. The beauty of this lens is that in no way is the camera’s performance throttled. Polecam Systems was appointed earlier this year by Toshiba Europe as the European Centre of Excellence for their range of broadcast products.
