Manhattan Center Adds Four New Ikegami HDK-97ARRI for Increased Flexibility
Manhattan Center (MC) has added four new Ikegami HDK-97ARRI cameras to its inventory. A marriage of technology between two recognized industry leaders — Ikegami and ARRI — the HDK-97ARRI is a broadcast-style
production camera with digital cinema characteristics.
“The Ikegami HDK-97ARRI adds another level of flexibility for MC to meet clients’ needs with the large-format sensor,” says Marvin Williams, Director of Video Engineering and Operations for MC. “They are the ideal complement to our Ikegami HDK-97C Digital 3G Portable CMOS cameras for meeting a wide range of production needs.”
The HDK-97ARRI makes it possible to employ a large format sensor in multiple camera operation, resulting in a “best of both worlds” image acquisition system ideal for use in multi-camera studio and field applications. Centered around ARRI’s Super 35mm CMOS sensor with its associated support circuitry, the system provides such cinematic qualities as shallow depth-of-focus, exceptional dynamic range, and progressive frame rates like 23.98p. Meanwhile, broadcast-grade distribution is enabled with the latest in Ikegami technology, via fiber transmission using up to 2 km SMPTE hybrid fiber/copper camera cable.
