VSD’s IK-HD3 is based on Canon's state-of-the-art prism block technology to produce optimal color accuracy, high resolution, and increased sensitivity from an extremely compact package. This feature-rich progressive scan, 1080p, 2.1MP, HD 3-CMOS remote-head camera is ideal for microscopy, scientific imaging, diagnostics, aerospace/aviation, and other applications where exceptional video performance and increased sensitivity is required, and space is limited.

The IK-HD3D camera controller features binning mode for a 4X increase in sensitivity, image flip and mirror and expanded user controls. For even greater flexibility the controller is also compatible with the IK-HR3H 1-chip CMOS, 1080p camera head.
