Ikegami, a provider of HD and UHD cameras and production equipment for television content producers and broadcasters, will exhibit its newest technology and systems on the Ikegami APAC stand 4R4-01 at Broadcast Asia 2018. Debuted at the April 2018 NAB Show in Las Vegas, the HDK-99 succeeds Ikegami’s HDK-95C as the elite offering in the Unicam HD series. A docking-style camera for portable and studio applications, it employs three 2.6 megapixel high-performance CMOS image sensors delivering high picture quality in HDR at Full-HD 1920 x 1080 resolution.
HLG mode maintains the high contrast required for HDR and conforms to the ITU-R BT.2100 international standard. Signal-to-noise ratio is >62 dB and sensitivity is a high F11 (59.94 Hz). The sensors natively support 1080i /59.94, 1080i/50, 720p/59.94, 720p/50, 1080p/29.97, 1080p/25 and 1080p/23.98. Also supported are 1080p/59.94, 1080p/50, 1080i/119.88, and 1080i/100 3G HDTV formats.
Ikegami’s new HQLM-3125X HDR broadcast production monitor employs a 4,096×2,160 pixel 10-bit resolution LED-backlit LCD panel with a 1,000,000:1 contrast ratio. Fully compliant with BT.2020 wide colour gamut, the HQLM-3125X incorporates single-channel 3G-SDI × 5, 3G/HD-SDI and HDMI inputs as standard features. A dual-channel 12G-SDI input is also available for other 4K equipment. Viewing angle for critical image evaluation is a wide 178 degrees (horizontal/vertical).
The Ikegami HDK-73 is a dockable multi-role high-definition camera designed for SDR and HDR broadcast production. It is available as complete system including CCU, connecting fibre, viewfinder and remote control. Image capture is to 2/3-inch 2.6 megapixel CMOS sensors, each capable of capturing Full-HD 1920 x 1080 resolution images with a dynamic range of 600% in normal mode and an extremely wide 1200% in HLG mode, high sensitivity (F13 at 50 Hz) and high signal-to-noise ratio.
