Ikegami, a provider of HD, UHD cameras and related equipment for television content originators and broadcasters, will demonstrate the ladditions to its product range at BroadcastAsia2019, at Singapore. The Ikegami exhibit will include the company's Full-HD HDR and Ultra-HD HDR camera systems and monitors.
Ikegami UHK-430 4K-native camera system
The UHK-430 is a 4K-native camera system with simultaneous HDR/SDR processing. Its three 2/3 inch CMOS sensors provide 3840 x 2160 UHD resolution plus the depth-of-field needed for studio and outdoor production. The camera is equipped with a B4 bayonet mount compatible with 2/3 inch HD lenses. An optional SE-U430 expander accommodates large studio or OB lenses.
Additional features include an integrated super processor, which allows 40 gigabit/s uncompressed full bandwidth video transmission. An integrated Ikegami AXII processor enables the UHK-430 to deliver a wide range of features power-efficiently, including 16-axis colour correction and focus-assist for 4K and HD video modes. In addition to introducing a 4K camera, Ikegami will debut its MoIP GW (Medi-over-IP gateway) module as an IP option for the CCU-430.
Ikegami UHL-43 4K HDR compact multi-purpose camera
The UHL-43 is a compact 4K camera employing the same operational workflow and remote control structure as Ikegami’s UHK-430 and UHK-435 models. It is designed for POV applications such as robotic studio production, sports, traffic and weather coverage, and video surveillance. The camera has three 4K-native CMOS sensors, a sensitivity of F11 and a typical signal-to-noise ratio of 62 dB, allowing use in difficult lighting conditions.The UHL-43 delivers detailed picture quality across the full range of brightness levels, from deep black to peak white. The camera also captures wide colour gamut.
Ikegami HDK-99 Full-HD HDR camera system
The HDK-99 is a docking-style camera for portable and studio applications. It employs three 2.6 megapixel CMOS image sensors delivering high picture quality in HDR at 1920 x 1080 resolution with progressive-scan. Processed 4K can be sourced from the camera control unit. HLG mode maintains the high contrast required for HDR and conforms to the ITU-R BT.2100 international standard.
Integrated in the HDK-99 is the Ikegami AXII processor which allows fast and precise colour matching for live multi-camera applications. A lens aberration correction function minimises resolution loss and coloured edging caused mainly by optical lens deviation. Quick EZ Focus Assist enhances the viewfinder signal, enabling the camera operator to make critical focus adjustments. Area size, area colour, edge colour, and display time on the viewfinder, are all adjustable from the camera menu.
Ikegami HDK-73 3-CMOS Full-HD HDR camera
The HDK-73 is a docking-style multi-role high-definition camera designed for SDR and HDR broadcast production. It is available as a complete system including CCU, connecting fibre, viewfinder and remote control. The camera has three 2/3-inch 2.6 megapixel CMOS sensors, each capable of 1920 x 1080 resolution with a wide dynamic range of 1200% in HDR mode with high sensitivity (F13 at 50 Hz) and low signal-to-noise ratio. Major features include full digital signal processing, advanced digital detail correction with independent horizontal and vertical correction of red, green and blue signals, and optional anti-moiré filtering. HLG processing is operator-selectable for HDR picture origination, enabling high-contrast scenes to be televised with full picture detail across the entire brightness range from highlights, mid-range to shaded areas.
Ikegami will demonstrate the picture quality of its 4K HQLM series monitors and Full-HD HLM 60 series monitors at BroadcastAsia2019. Its 24-inch HLM-2460WR, 17-inch HLM-1760WR and 9-inch HLM-960WR now offer the option to support HDR EOTF tables in HLG1, HLG2, and S-Log3 as well as conventional gamma.
The HQLM-1720WR is a compact UHD HDR monitor suitable for use in confined spaces such as OB vehicles. 3G-SDI, HD-SDI and HDMI inputs are also provided as standard. The HQLM-1720WR employs a 16.5 inch 3840 x 2160 pixel UHD LCD panel with LED backlight and can reproduce high resolution 4K and 2K images.
Additionally on show will be Ikegami's HQLM-3125X 31-inch master reference monitor, which offers 4K colour resolution and 1000 nits brightness, together with the HQLM-3120W 4K multi-format 31-inch video monitor.
