Ikegami will launch its new UHK-430 4K/HD portable camera system at CABSAT 2016.
The first in Ikegami’s next-generation Unicam XE series, the UHK-430 offers 3840×2160 ultra-high definition resolution.
The camera is equipped with a B4 bayonet mount, which is compatible with 2/3-inch HD lenses.
“The UHK-430 is one of the most important additions to our product range in recent years,” said Masanori Kondo, president of Ikegami Europe.
“It allows very high quality UHD and wide dynamic range production while at the same time interfacing easily with current HD systems.
“The high frame rate option will be particularly appreciated by OB production companies as it provides easy access to slow-motion effects both for sports and stage-event coverage.”
Two-piece construction allows the UHK-430’s sensor and lens head to be detached as a compact unit for deployment on support devices such as long-reach, manually controlled camera poles. In this mode, the head can be operated up to 50m from the camera body.
“The new processor enables the UHK-430 to deliver a wide range of features including a 16-axis colour matrix and focus-a supported in 4K mode,” added Kondo.
“BT. 709 colour space is supported in HD modes and can also be switched in during 4K operation. The processor also contributes to low power consumption.”
