Ikegami Demonstrates UHK-430 4K Camera

News Image
Ikegami delivered a busy line-up at this year's NAB Show New York which included its UHK-430 4K camera, HDK-73 camera, HLM-960WR and HEM-2570W monitors.

Designed for use in the studio and the field, the UHK-430 is from the company's Unicam XE camera series and features three 2/3-inch 4K (3840x2160) CMOS sensors with RGB prism optics for 'Real 4K' resolution from 24 million pixels (eight million per sensor).

Equipped with Ikegami's latest AXII ASIC for low power and digital signal processing features, the UHK-430 attains 16-axis color correction from a 3D linear matrix. It also enables five Custom Gamma memories for HDR transfer characteristics, including HLG and iLog. The UHK-430 employs 40G transmission using standard SMPTE hybrid fiber/copper camera cable, uncompressed 4:4:4 resolution RGB transmission, with eight HD channels from CCU to camera, and one HD trunk channel from camera to CCU. In addition, a Gigabit Ethernet connection is available on the Ikegami UHK-430 camera for external use. The UHK-430 is switchable between 4K and 2K formats. As an option, the CCU can output simultaneous 4K and 2K, with available 2K cutout from the 4K picture. A plug-in output module allows for flexible 4K signal formats including Quad 3G, 12G, and IP.

Accessories to enhance the UHK-430 and future Unicam XE camera models were also on display at the show, in addition to newly-available HDR compatibility. Furthermore, there are three accompanying viewfinders available including the VFE741D (a 7.4-inch OLED viewfinder), the VFL701D (a 7-inch full HD resolution LCD viewfinder), and the VFL201D (a 2-inch portable LCD viewfinder). All three include a serial digital interface for integrated camera and viewfinder menu control. The SE-U430, a system expander for the camera, is also an available accessory.

Also at NAB NY 2017 was the HDK-73 camera, the latest addition to Ikegami's Unicam HD camera series, featuring F12 high sensitivity 2/3-inch CMOS sensors with picture quality in either 1080i or 720p. 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 HDK-73 includes new key features such as Ikegami's Quick EZ Focus assist and CAC chromatic aberration correction. Also included is hybrid log gamma for HDR picture origination.

Ikegami monitors exhibited included the new HLM-960WR, a multi-format 9-inch monitor with Full HD (1920×1080) 8-bit LCD panel and LED backlight. This monitor includes a standard 3G-SDI input, and also features a high-performance Liquid Crystal Panel, diverse input sources, compatibility with embedded audio, DC operation, built-in marker function, user marker display function, and shadow function.

Additional features of the HLM-960WR include various built-in test signals, waveform monitor/vectorscope display functions, time code display function, 2-picture split display, dot-by-dot display function, and external memory function. It also includes Auto Setup *ASP-100, 5.1 Surround Down-Mix Output, white balance adjustment assist, image & test signal MIX functions, and 2x/4x zoom function.

Meanwhile, the HEM-2570W 25-inch full HD OLED Grade-1 master monitor comes with high performance OLED panels. Highlights include support of 10 patterns x 10 scenes for user markers, a USB terminal for support of functions including auto setup, saving an image, full-screen capturing and mouse connection for menu navigation. In addition, audio functions such as speakers and headphone terminal are provided.
