The BSX-100 is a newly developed universal base station 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 BSX-100 supports either HD cameras, 4K cameras, or both camera types.
Its compact and light weight design with 3U half-rack size allows operation in a variety of locations such as studio, OB Van, etc. Moreover, the base station provides 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 BSX-100 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 BSX-100 is equipped with an SDR/HDR simulcast function, making it possible to run productions in both standards simultaneously.
* The BSX-100 supports the HDK-97A, HDK-79GX and HDK-55 as an option
HDR (High Dynamic Range) Mode
The BSX-100 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 BSX-100 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 BSX-100 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 BSX-100 allows for dedicated “out of band” network communication in accordance with NMOS standards.
4K Upgrade Path (Option)
The BSX-100 Base Station 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.
