Hitachi Kokusai Electric will exhibit its new Z-HD6000 portable, dockable HDTV studio and EFP camera, with A 3×2/3-inch MOS 2.6 megapixel sensor, at IBC which opens in Amsterdam next week.
The camera has HDTV signal format outputs in 1080/59.94i or 1080/50i with 1100TV lines resolution. The Z-HD6000 is the first 3MOS sensor HDTV camera in the company’s Z Series product line.
“Leveraging the company’s extensive digital signal processing expertise, Hitachi developed the Z- HD6000 to offer customers superior price performance – with uncompromised quality and functionality at a great value,” said Cemal Yilmaz, the broadcast marketing manager of Hitachi Kokusai Europe, a subsidiary of Hitachi Kokusai Electric.
The new product is a two-piece dockable camera for multipurpose applications including studio, field, and mobile video production. The camera can be docked to an optical fibre, triax, or RF wireless adapter, offering high light sensitivity and no vertical smear.
The camera can be carried on the shoulder and features realtime lens aberration correction (RLAC), along with ultra-gamma for film contrasts, and a 12-vector and linear matrix masking allowing for changing hue and saturation levels. Other features include skin-tone-masking, quick-focus, user-programmable switches and a choice of b/w or colour viewfinder displays.
