HDR upgrade for UHD and HD cameras11 September 2016
High dynamic range capabilities have been added to a wide selection of Hitachi cameras, including not only its flagship SK-UHD4000 2/3-inch UHD studio/field camera, but also its Z-Series, SK-Series and DK-Series HD cameras.
“[HDR] is a key feature on our UHD and HDTV broadcast cameras since it provides the increased contrast, richer colour and dynamic lighting of the video it captures,” said Cemal Yilmaz, general manager of Hitachi Kokusai Turkey. “We have worked hard on our implementation of
HDR in our cameras; as a result users will be able to produce significantly superior HDR imagery without having to upgrade their existing infrastructure or transmission systems.”
Among the cameras offering HDR is the SK-HD1300, Hitachi’s new top-of-the-line progressive scan HD studio and EFP camera, which captures 1080p images with its three 2/3-inch, 2.6 megapixel MOS sensors. It also offers F11 standard sensitivity with 62dB of video headroom plus real-time lens aberration correction.
The new HDR cameras are being shown working alongside Hitachi’s OB-Box and Mobile Transmission Vehicle, to demonstrate how Hitachi can capture images in the highest resolution and then communicate these pictures back to base quickly and easily, in the most cost-effective ways.12.F38
