News: Ikegami UHK-430 4K Camera and HC-HD300 at 2016 NAB Show New York
Innovative Systems Will Be Demonstrated from Leader in HD & UHD Cameras and Production Equipment
(Maywood, NJ--October 19, 2016) Ikegami, a leader in HD and UHD cameras and production equipment for TV broadcasters, networks, and other HD content creators, will exhibit an advanced range of systems at the 2016 NAB Show New York in booth #1751. This year’s NAB NY exhibition halls will be open November 9-10 at the Jacob Javits Center.
The show will mark the East Coast debut of the UHK-430 4K camera, the first member of the new Unicam XE camera series from Ikegami. Designed for use in the studio and field, the UHK-430 provides Ikegami’s superb imagery in true 4K. It features three 2/3-inch 4K (3840x2160) CMOS sensors with RGB prism optics, for “Real 4K” resolution from 24 million pixels (8 million per sensor).
Equipped with Ikegami’s new AXII ASIC for low power and new digital signal processing features, the UHK-430 attains 16-axis color correction from a 3D linear matrix. It also enables HLG and iLog, log transfer curves for HDR (high dynamic range). The UHK-430 is capable of 40G transmission using standard SMPTE hybrid fiber/copper camera cable, uncompressed 4:4:4 resolution RGB transmission, with eight HD channels from CCU to camera, and one HD trunk channel from camera to CCU. In addition, a Gigabit Ethernet connection is available on the Ikegami UHK-430 camera for external use. The UHK-430 is switchable between 4K and 2K formats. As an option the CCU can output simultaneous 4K and 2K, with available 2K cutout from the 4K picture. A plug-in output module allows for flexible 4K signal formats including Quad 3G, 12G, and IP.
A number of accessories to enhance the UHK-430 and future Unicam XE camera models will be shown. The three accompanying viewfinders include the VFE741D, a 7.4-inch OLED viewfinder; the VFL701D, a 7-inch full HD resolution LCD viewfinder; and the VFL201D, a 2-inch portable LCD viewfinder. All three include a serial digital interface for integrated camera and viewfinder menu control. The SE-U430, a powerful system expander for the camera, will also be on exhibit at NAB New York.
In addition, attendees will be able to get hands-on with the Ikegami HC-HD300. A highly flexible, docking style camera that represents Ikegami’s most affordable HD studio camera system, the HC-HD300 is ready for the studio or field. It features a newly-developed 3-CMOS optical block design, in keeping with the outstanding imagery and same rugged construction of the broadcast-ready Unicam HD line.
Ideal 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 camera control system consisting of the FA-300 Fiber Adapter and BSF-300 Base Station, utilizing OpticalCON DUO connectors for its fiber camera cable connection.
These Ikegami systems and more will be on display throughout NAB Show New York, at Booth 1751, November 9-10, 2016, at the Jacob Javits Center.
