TV Skyline has equipped its OB vehicle with 23 HD camera systems from Ikegami. As part of the new OB7 truck, the company has purchased 22 Unicam HD cameras HDK-97A/970A, as well as a HiMotion II camera system for HD productions in ultra-slow motion.
"TV Skyline requires high-quality systems with excellent image quality and flexibility,” said Wolfgang Reeh, CEO. “Also the service is very important to us. Here Ikegami convinced us with a fast and reliable support and the facility for adjustment of the cameras to our specific needs at Ikegami’s manufacturing site in Neuss, Germany.”
The Unicam HD cameras HDK-97A/HDK-970A are equipped with new AIT 2/3-inch CCD sensors. The dockable camera system allows operation with fibre optic adapters for the transmission of 3G signals for newly developed 3G base station BS -97, and the use of digital triax adapters. It supports formats 1080i/720p, 3G 1080/50p 4:2:2 and 4:4:4 1080/50i.
Ikegami’s HiMotion II camera system has already produced ultra-slow motion pictures for the Bundesliga, the UEFA Champions League, the UEFA European Football Championship 2012 and the Olympic Games 2012 and 2014. Developed in cooperation with NAC Image Technology, the camera features high sensitivity and a dual anti-flicker correction. The built-in memory lets users capture up to 1000fps for playback of critical events and action in sports productions. The camera system works in formats 1080/50i and 720/50p.
TV Skyline also purchased 22 Ikegami professional ULE 217 Full HD monitors.
