The newly enhanced 3CCD progressive scan camera family features improved performance with expanded digital processing capabilities. The IK-TF5P2 features VGA, 659 x 494 pixel output at 59.94 frames per second (fps); the IK-TF7P2 delivers XGA, 1024 x 768 pixel output at 29.18 fps.

Other features include electronic noise reduction, digital shading correction, dual power input (PoCL or 12VDC), C-mount lens mount, and both on-screen and remote RS-232 control.
