IBC 2016: Live Production OB-BOX With New Hitachi 4K Camera
Hitachi Kokusai Electric (Stand 12.F38) will demonstrate its comprehensive broadcast system solutions capability stretching from broadcast and professional video camera systems to its revolutionary OB-BOX concept, mobile transmission vehicles and the latest developments in broadcast antenna systems.
At IBC, Hitachi will showcase its Live Production OB-BOX equipped with the company’s new 4MOS sensor technology 4K production camera; 3MOS 1080p sensor SK-HD1300 series cameras; and 3CCD sensor SK-HD1200 production camera with the company’s new 7.4 inch OLED viewfinder.
First introduced to the European market at IBC last year, OB-Box is proving popular amongst broadcasters and OB service providers across Europe, the Middle East, Africa and Asia regions. OB-BOX is a fully featured modular OB facility which is delivered to the customer and then mounted onto a vehicle’s chassis using a proprietary fixing kit. This approach significantly reduces the manufacture and delivery time in any market worldwide since it removes the need to source and ship an appropriate vehicle for each customer.
Another example of Hitachi’s Kokusai Electric’s advanced conceptualization and development capabilities is the company’s Mobile Transmission Vehicle. Designed to enable a broadcaster to get to the news scene and quickly establish links back to the production centre, the off-road vehicle features an on-board Pals PKM-120Ku Band antenna, and Hitachi’s Z-HD6000 3MOS sensor Camera with wireless connectivity capabilities.
