Ikegami will follow the success of its 2014 presentation by once again hosting an 8K Technology exhibit highlighting an 8K UHDTV camera, which will update attendees on the newest developments in the extremely high resolution Super Hi Vision format.
A 4K technology exhibit including a new 2/3-inch CMOS 4K camera (pictured) and a new 4K base station, compatible with existing Ikegami Unicam cameras, will also be presented. As part of the 4K exhibit, Ikegami will display Hibino Corporation’s cutting-edge real-dot full 4K 293-inch LED display. Ikegami’s precise imaging technologies and Hibino’s high resolution display technologies will be merged to expand the potential of the 4K solution.
The newest addition to Ikegami’s Unicam HD product line, the HC-HD300, is a highly flexible docking-style camera that represents Ikegami’s first affordable HD studio camera system. Ready for studio or field, it features a newly-developed 1/3-inch 3-CMOS optical block design, in keeping with the high quality imagery and same rugged construction of the broadcast-ready Unicam HD line.
Suitable for broadcast TV stations, as well as, educational, corporate and house of worship applications, the highly versatile Ikegami HC-HD300 also works in conjunction with a newly developed camera control system consisting of the FA-300 fibre adapter and BSF-300 base station, using OpticalCON DUO connectors for its fibre camera cable connection. This connector accepts either a mating OpticalCON Duo connector for SMPTE hybrid camera cable (maximum distance: 250m/820ft), or common optical LC connectors for duplex single-mode fibre cable (maximum distance: 10km/32,800ft). The system enables affordable and flexible integration for a variety of applications.
The new HDK-65C is the latest addition to Ikegami’s Unicam HD line. Equipped with multi-format 2.5 million pixel 2/3 inch CMOS sensors, the HDK-65C is available as a single-format system and is software-upgradeable to additional HD formats. Providing end-to-end digital processing, it features a low-profile docking camera head for fibre, triax, or wireless applications.
CMOS sensors are now meeting and exceeding the performance of CCDs in sensitivity, signal-to-noise ratio, and resolution. They continue to offer low power consumption, no vertical smear, and a high degree of format flexibility. With extensive ongoing research and development in this technology, the adoption of CMOS for broadcast camera use is now the trend.
