Hitachi hopes for increased European market share27 July 2012
Hitachi is showing several new cameras at IBC as part of a renewed focus on the European market, including the super slow-motion SK-HD1500 and the 16-bit SK-HD1200 1080P/3G production camera.
It will also be showing models developed for specific broadcast applications from wireless operation to fibre system, PoV and goalmouth cameras.
“Since the days of anti-dumping levies, Hitachi has been a sleeping giant within the broadcast system camera market, but at IBC2012 visitors will witness the start of a new era in our company’s development,” stated Paddy Roache, Director and General Manager of Hitachi Kokusai Electric Europe.
“A major broadcast camera research and development initiative is starting to pay rich dividends,” many of which are on show for the first time at IBC, alongside “a development roadmap that will position us in the vanguard of this dynamic technology sector.”
The SK-HD1500 will be shown working in combination with LGZ’s just.Replay cost-effective replay server system. LGZ is also showing its new LGZ.usb – an HD-SDI to 8x USB Recording device, designed for recording sequences to USB sticks or disks. – David Fox
