Ikegami Intros HDK-73 2/3-inch CMOS Unicam HD Camera
The HDK-73 provides exceptional picture quality in either 1080i or 720p in a cost-effective camera system
Ikegami, a leader in HD and UHD cameras and production equipment for TV broadcasters, networks, and other HD content creators, is introducing the new HDK-73 2/3-inch CMOS Unicam HD camera at the 2017 NAB Show. This year's NAB exhibition halls will be open April 24-27 at the Las Vegas Convention Center.
The show marks the debut of the HDK-73 camera, the latest addition to Ikegami's Unicam HD camera series. Featuring F12 high sensitivity 2/3-inch CMOS sensors, the HDK-73 provides exceptional picture quality in either 1080i or 720p in a cost-effective camera system, making it ideal for an extensive range of applications both in the studio and in the field.
The HDK-73 has docking style construction allowing studio configuration with fiber or triax base stations, as well as self-contained operation for wireless or onsite recording applications. Fiber configurations include a choice of SMPTE or OpticalCon connectors. The camera cable distance with SMPTE cable and connectors is 3300 feet, with power provided from the base station. The OpticalCon solution reduces cost, although the maximum cable distance with OpticalCon is reduced to 1000 feet. Both fiber solutions support long distance transmission (more than five miles) using a pair of SM fibers, with power provided locally for the camera head. The HDK-73's digital triax system features extremely low latency over a distance up to 3300 feet on 1/2-inch triax. In addition, all three base stations are compact (1.5 RU) and lightweight.
The video processing DSP includes the anticipated functions from Ikegami to optimize color reproduction and detail in the picture. Included with the HDK-73 are key new features such as Ikegami's Quick EZ Focus assist and CAC chromatic aberration correction. Also included is HLG hybrid log gamma for HDR picture origination.
Control of the HDK-73 is provided using a range of control panels from the simple joystick OCP-10 to the sophisticated touch screen OCP-300. Control panels can be connected direct to the base stations. Assignable Ethernet connection is also available on Ikegami's newest camera system.
The Ikegami HDK-73 and more will be on display throughout NAB, at Booth C7217, April 24-27, 2017, at the Las Vegas Convention Center. HDK-73 catalog (3.3MB PDF)
