*SOME OF THE ABOVE LISTED FEATURES ARE AVAILABLE FROM THE BSX-100/CCU-X100 AND/OR REQUIRE OPTIONAL PURCHASES
2/3" 3 CMOS GLOBAL SHUTTER SENSOR
A 3-CMOS optical system using a newly developed 2/3-inch CMOS sensor boasts an S/N of 62dB and a sensitivity of F11 (1080/50p) / F10 (1080/59.94p) in HD. The high dynamic range of the sensor produces high-quality images with excellent color reproduction. The CMOS sensor incorporates a global shutter pixel architecture, enabling the camera to capture natural images even under challenging situations. Still frame replay of fast-moving objects is free from geometric distortion. And there are no flash bands when the camera is shooting under strobe lights or flashes from still cameras.
The UHK-X600 can be upgraded in the field for additional functionality as you encounter various needs that arise in the future. Ikegami provides the following
- 4K Capturing (2160p 50/59.94)
- HFR Capturing (2x, 3x, and 4x HD)
- 4K HDR/HD SDR Simulcast
- 24p Capturing
HIGH FRAME RATE OPERATION (OPTION)
With the HFR option, up to 4x speed in HD* is supported. This is effective when shooting fast-moving subjects such as sports.
* with BSX-100/CCU-X100 type-S
SIMULCAST 4K/HDR-HD/SDR & COLOUR SPACE CONVERSION (OPTION)
Together with the BSX-100 and CCU-X100, simultaneous output of 4K HDR and HD SDR video is possible by separate processing of EOTF, Colour Space and Edge Detailing as a standard feature.
Furthermore three separate processing channels enable output of 2160P, 1080P and 1080i video at the same time.
NO COLOUR ALIASING
Three-chip optical technology drastically reduces colour aliasing which is always an issue with single-chip cameras.
With the optional Low-Pass-Filter aliasing effects can be reduced even more which is especially helpful when shooting LED walls.
OPTICAL VIGNETTING CORRECTION (OVC)
Automatic electronic compensation of F-drop and vignetting.
* with supported lenses
REMOTE BACKFOCUS ADJUSTMENT (RBF)
The Remote Backfocus Adjustment function helps setting accurate backfocus even when the camera
head is located in an environment where it is hard to reach the back focus adjustment on the lens or
difficult to critically see the viewfinder picture.
*with supported lenses
16-AXIS COLOUR CORRECTOR
FOCUS ASSIST FUNCTION
The Focus Assist function is a newly incorporated useful tool, providing very distinct enhancement to the viewfinder signal to enable the camera operator to make critical focus adjustment. The size of area, area color, edge color, and display time on the viewfinder are adjustable in the camera menu.
VARIOUS INTERFACES (OPTION)
Various interfaces like 12G-SDI, Media Over IP, Gigabit Ethernet data trunk are available as option. The companion Ikegami BSX-100 Base Station and CCU-X100 Control Unit enable easy migration from HD to 4K live production through simulcast operation. (Option)

WIDE COLOUR SPACE AND HDR
The gamma setting is selectable and can be customized to create a specific tone. The “HLG“ (Hybrid Log Gamma), which conforms the international standard (ITU-R BT.2100), is pre-installed and enables more neutral image quality with high contrast for a wider dynamic range. This allows for more image information to be retained with greater headroom and color grading.
COMPACT, LIGHTWEIGHT AND USER FRIENDLY
The compact body, low weight of 5 kg and low center of gravity create the perfect balance together with the adjustable shoulder pad while shooting on the shoulder. Additionally, the viewfinder can be adjusted in three axis. The BSX-100 weighs only 7 kg and fits easily into OB van infrastructure with 3RU height and half-rack width.
SE-U430 SYSTEM EXPANDER
Enables the use of a studio viewfinder and large studio lens with digital interface. Newly designed for UNICAM XE series with improved lens swap mechanism.
Two viewfinder models are available for the UHK-X600. The digital interface allows access to the camera menu from the viewfinder (VFL201D, VFL701D).
