Ikegami introduces affordable HD STUDIO CAMERA SYSTEM HC-HD300
Latest Addition to UnicamHD Line Features Newly Developed 1/3-inch full resolution three CMOS sensor block, New Fiber Camera Control System for Flexible Operation in Studio & Field.
Ikegami Tsushinki Co.,LTD., the world-leading manufacturer of advanced HD cameras and production equipment, has introduced the HC-HD300 CMOS Studio HDTV Camera System.
The newest addition to Ikegami’s Unicam HD product line, the HC-HD300 is a highly flexible, docking style camera that represents Ikegami’s first affordable HD studio camera system. Ready for the studio or field, it features a newly-developed 1/3-inch 3-CMOS optical block design, in keeping with the outstanding imagery and same rugged construction of the broadcast-ready UnicamHD line.
CMOS sensors are now meeting and exceeding the performance of CCDs in sensitivity, signal-to-noise ratio, and resolution. They continue to offer low power consumption, no vertical smear, and a high degree of format flexibility. With extensive ongoing research and development in this technology, the adoption of CMOS for broadcast camera use is now the trend.
Ideal for broadcast TV stations, as well as, educational, corporate and house of worship applications, the highly versatile Ikegami HC-HD300 also works in conjunction with a newly developed camera control system consisting of the FA-300 Fiber Adaptor and BSF-300 Base Station, utilizing OpticalCON DUO connectors for its fiber camera cable connection. This connector accepts either a mating OpticalCON Duo connector for SMPTE hybrid camera cable (maximum distance: 350m with 2"VF, 250m with 7"VF), or common optical LC connectors for duplex single-mode fiber cable (maximum distance: 10km). The system enables affordable and flexible integration for a variety of applications.
The lightweight and compact size (1.5RU) BSF-300 is easily integrated into any studio, mobile truck, or portable flypack. When using hybrid fiber camera cable, the base station provides power to the fiber adapter and the camera itself.
Other key features of the Ikegami HC-HD300 is a high performance sensor block with F10 sensitivity, 58dB SNR, and 1000TVL resolution, Native 1920 x1080 HD resolution, Multi-Video format 1080i, 720p, 480i (NTSC), 576i (PAL) Switchable; Unique Quick EZ Focus (focus assist) function, and Built-in Automatic Lens Aberration Correction function.
The Ikegami name is recognized globally for its state-of-the-art television cameras and closed-circuit TV equipment. World-class CMOS imagery, multi-format flexibility, and unparalleled customer support define the Ikegami experience for users in broadcast, sports venues, mobile production, houses of worship, education, corporate and many more applications.
HC-HD300 is to be announced and displayed in the BIRTV2014 taken place in CIEC(China International Exhibition Center) from August 27(WED) to August 30(SAT).
