Ikegami adds new 4K camera to its OB and studio options

UHK-X750 full studio/OB camera supports simultaneous output in UHD and HD video formats

Ikegami Europe is adding the UHK-X750 full studio/OB camera optimised for fixed-mount operation on a pedestal or tripod to its suite of products.

The camera was first unveiled at NAB in April.

It includes three 2/3-inch CMOS UHD sensors with a global shutter to minimise artifacts when shooting LED screens or scenes illuminated with flash or strobe lighting, said Ikegami.

Full HDR/SDR support is included as well as the ability to choose between BT.2020 and BT.709 colour spaces. High-frame-rate shooting at up to 2x speed in UHD or up to 8x in HD via the base station is possible as an option, added the company.

Five neutral density filters (clear through to 1/64) and four chroma filters (3200, 4300, 6300 and cross) are included as well as provision for an optional optical low-pass-filter to eliminate moiré effects when using LED video walls.

According to Ikegami, when the camera is combined with its BSX-100 base station or CCU-X100, the UHK-X750 supports simultaneous output in UHD and HD video formats. IP interface of video, audio, and intercom inputs and outputs conforming to SMPTE.2110 and NMOS standards is available as an option at the base station or CCU.

“The UHK-X750 is intended for production studios and outside broadcast service providers seeking high mastering quality to maximise the commercial longevity of their productions,” said Ikegami Electronics (Europe) Broadcast and Professional Video Division manager Michael Lätzsch.

“Distinguishing elements of the UHK-X750 include a lower centre-of-gravity and easier staging compared to a portable camera. The new model delivers the optimum weight balance for operation in combination with a large lens. It also features a greater design emphasis on ease of service and cool operation. The camera’s low body height brings the accompanying VFL-701D viewfinder closer to the optical axis of the camera.”
