Ikegami will be giving a UK debut to its 4K-native UHK-430 portable broadcast camera at ExCeL London later this month. The newest addition to Ikegami’s range incorporates three 4K-native, 2/3-inch, eight megapixel CMOS sensors, delivering four times more image detail than high definition, boasting a colour depth of ten bits per pixel. The UHK-430 also includes a B4 bayonet mount compatible with 2/3 inch HD and 4K lenses.
Also making its UK debut at BVE is the UHK-430’s unique two piece construction. The UHK-430 has an optical block supporting options such as 35mm 4K sensors or high frame rate sensors. The head can be detached and operated up to 50 metres from the camera body, designed for easy deployment on support devices such as long-reach camera poles.
At the heart of the UHK-430 is Ikegami’s 5th generation high-speed video processing engine, the AXII, reducing power consumption and delivering a wide range of features. The AXII also provides the processing for Ikegami’s newly developed transfer characteristic, which delivers high contrast for a wider dynamic range.
