According to John Mandernach, V.P. of Maintenance at Maverick Helicopters, “We’ve been recording personalized flights with pilot narration and guest interaction since 1996. We’ve gone from providing VHS tapes to DVDs, and we now offer Blu-ray HD technology. We asked our camera supplier, InterTest ( – Columbia, NJ), to recommend the very best HD camera for our needs and without hesitation, they suggested Toshiba Imaging’s 1080p IK-HR1D camera for the best color, contrast, and quality available.”
