NEW YORK — At the CCW in New York next week, Ikegami (www.ikegami.com) will show a number of products that provide high quality HD picture and convenience features.
The HDK-97C is the latest addition to the company’s Unicam line of HD cameras featuring 3G-SDI and multi-format HD performance. The HDK-97C employs 2.5 mega-pixel 2/3-inch CMOS image sensors, which achieve superior quality HDTV video with horizontal resolution of 1000TVL, SNR of 60dB or more, and sensitivity of F11.
The camera supports a number of native HDTV formats including 1080i/59.94, 1080i/50, 720p/59.94, 720p/50, 1080p/29.97, 1080p/23.98 and 1080p/25 (some formats are option). The HDK-97C also supports 3G formats: 1080p/59.94 4:2:2, 1080p/50 4:2:2, 1080i/59.94 4:4:4, and 1080i/50 4:4:4.
With a docking style camera body, either an FA (Fiber Adaptor) or TA (Triax Adaptor) can be mounted on the HDK-97C, depending on the use. Low profile and low weight improve the maneuverability for shoulder use.
Additional features include 2x Slo-Motion (1080i 119.88/100Hz). When the camera is operating in a conventional 1.5G format, a second 1.5G video from an external source can be transmitted to the CCU as a video trunk channel, which is useful for POV or 3D applications because it reduces the number cables which need to be run. As well, two HD-SDI signals (1.5G) and two SDTV signals are transmitted from CCU to camera head for VF Return, prompter, and external monitor use.
The Ikegami HDK-55 is the most affordable member of the Unicam HD camera series, and uses 1080i 2.3 mega-pixel AIT CCDs. New features include Quick EZ Focus and chromatic aberration correction, and like the other portable cameras in the Unicam HD series, the HDK-55 is a compact low-profile camera head with docking adaptors for fiber or triax cable use.
For HD monitoring, Ikegami's line of HD flat-panel LCD monitors includes the "50 Series" high class displays and "04 Series" of economical displays, which were joined in 2012 by the compact new HLM-907WR 9-inch high-resolution LED-backlit LCD panel.
Other Ikegami space-saving and affordable HD flat-panel LCD monitors range from the cost-effective "04 Series" HLM-904WR and HLM-1704WR multi format 9- and 17-inch models, to the "50 Series" multi format HD monitors providing wide critical viewing angles, built-in vector and waveform monitoring, and full 1920 x 1080 pixels resolution. Ikegami’s "50" Series monitors include the HLM-3250W (32-inch), HLM-2450WB (24-inch), and HLM-1750WR (17-inch) models, all of which feature accurate color and gamma reproduction, embedded audio-level metering, time code reader display, and optional 3G-SDI inputs.
