NAB 2012: Ikegami To Intro HD 3G Multi-Format CMOS Cam
Ikegami will show the new HDK-97C Unicam HD 3G field production multi-format CMOS camera, which supports not only 1080i/720p, but also 3G signals such as 1080/60p 4:2:2 and 1080/30p 4:4:4 for “next-generation” HD production. A compact low-profile docking-style camera, the HDK-97C allows for easy change-over between fiber and triax adapters, with the Ikegami CCU-970 capable of supporting both cable types with simple front-panel switch selection, an important feature for mobile sports production.
The new Ikegami HDK-97A is a new 3G multi-format production camera, employing progressive CCD image sensors. Together with the new 1080i Ikegami HDK-55, these two compact low-profile docking cameras join the HDK-97C to comprise the Unicam HD camera line. Unicam cameras operate with new and existing CCUs, including the 3G CCU-970, the 3G half-rack BS-97, and the compact BSF-55.
The Hi-Motion II Ultra-Slow Motion HDTV camera system (co-developed, sold, and supported by Ikegami) from NAC Image Technology uses a three-CMOS-sensor camera head with 96GB of built-in memory to deliver greater than 10x speed for clear, sharp ultra-slow-motion playback of HD sports action, as was so seen in Super Bowl XLVI game coverage. A dual-format 1080i/720p system, it provides simultaneous output of live normal-speed video and ultra-slow-motion replay video.
