The CCU-X100 is a newly developed universal camera control unit supporting both Ikegami’s current “UNICAM HD” camera models HDK-99 and HDK-73 as well as Ikegami's 4K camera system UHK-X700 / UHK-X750. Depending on the installed process modules and software licenses, the CCU-X100 supports either HD cameras, 4K cameras, or both camera types.
An improved power supply extends the range between the CCU-X100 and the connected camera to 4,000m.
Moreover, the camera control unit offers not only 12G/3G/HD signal outputs but also processed 4K, flexibly supporting various systems depending on your needs.
With an optionally available MoIP (Media-over-IP) interface, the CCU-X100 can be integrated into modern IP media networks conforming to SMPTE ST.2110 and NMOS standards for maximum flexbility and equipment interconnectivity while reducing the complexity of signal and cabling infrastructure.
For improved workflow integration the CCU-X100 is equipped with an SDR/HDR simulcast function, making it possible to run productions in both standards simultaneously.
HDR (High Dynamic Range) Mode
The CCU-X100 supports HLG (Hybrid Log Gamma), conforming to ITU-R BT.2100 which is an international standard for HDR. It is now possible to expand the range represented from dark to bright, providing superb bright pictures with High Dynamic Range and rich colors with wide color gamut conforming to ITU-R BT.2020.
To expand possibilities of broadcasters and production companies, the CCU-X100 features a conversion function to simultaniously deliver HDR/BT.2020 and SDR/REC.709 signals (when operating in 4K/HD simultaneous output).
MoIP Interface (Option)
The CCU-X100 enables the transportation of separate video, audio, and metadata as independent IP multicast streams via an optional plug-in MoIP Unit, realizing more flexible system integration depending on the customer's system workflow. The unit supports uncompressed HD & 4K IP main output via 10GbE or 25GbE SFPs with low latency, providing superb picture quality. Moreover, redundancy is possible by using a 2nd SFP module (option), based on ST.2022-7. For fast and simple device connectivity, the CCU-X100 allows for dedicated “out of band” network communication in accordance with NMOS standards.
4K Upgrade Path (Option)
The CCU-X100 Camera Control Unit can provide 4K signal output while being used together with the HDK-99 3G-HDTV camera. This option is activated by a purchasable software key and enables the output of a 4K signal via 3G-SDI Quad-Link. Additionally a 4x SDI Output Board can be installed to extend the basestations' connectivity.
Transmission via MoIP standard SMPTE.2110 is easily possible.
* When 4K MoIP output is used a 25GbE SFP module is needed.
High Framerate Operation (Option)
When operating together with the UHK-X700 / UHK-X750, output of 2x speed in 4K resolution and 2x-8x speed in HD resolution is possible.
