Hitachi Kokusai To Display New Camera Solutions At InfoComm

News Image
Hitachi Kokusai Electric America, Ltd. is to display new practical and cost-effective camera solutions at InfoComm 2018.

Hitachi Kokusai will co-exhibit with the Digital Media Division of Hitachi America, Ltd. in booth C2736 at the event, taking place in Las Vegas, 06-08 June.
 
Helping AV professionals and content producers transition to Ultra HD (UHD) at their own preferred pace, the new CU-HD1300F-S1 HDTV camera control unit offers 4K, 12G-SDI output including High Dynamic Range (HDR) support. The CU-HD1300F-S1 can output natively-acquired 1080p video as 4K/UHD over single-link 12Gbps SDI or quad-link 3G-SDI connectivity. The 4K output functionality of the CU-HD1300F-S1 is compatible with all fiber-equipped, 1080p HITACHI Z-series and SK-series cameras, and supports High Dynamic Range when used with HDR-enabled camera models.
 
InfoComm demonstrations will show the CU-HD1300F-S1 in operation with the award-winning HITACHI Z-HD5500 studio and field production camera. Featuring the company's advanced, global-shutter CMOS image sensors, the Z-HD5500 delivers high-performance 1080p image capture with HDR at cost-efficient pricing and adapts easily to challenging LED lighting and display environments.
 
Hitachi Kokusai will also showcase powerful new options for its SK-UHD4000 4K Ultra HD camera system. Optional 12Gbps SDI output capabilities for the accompanying CU-HD4000 CCU complement its existing quad-link SDI interface, while a new software upgrade option enhances simultaneous HDR and Standard Dynamic Range (SDR) acquisition.
 
The new software enables separate video shading adjustments for HDR and SDR outputs, allowing users to select from multiple HDR profiles alongside SDR simultaneously with the same camera. This provides both creative and financial benefits compared to using separate cameras, enabling shot consistency while lowering costs.
 
Established products on display at InfoComm will include the HITACHI DK-H200 1080/60P box camera. Highlighting the compact and lightweight camera's ideal suitability for robotic camera applications, the DK-H200 will be demonstrated in conjunction with a KT-PH491 high-performance pan/tilt head from KXWELL International.
 
"AV professionals and systems integrators are facing multiple technology transitions that continue to accelerate," said Sean Moran, Chief Operating Officer, Hitachi Kokusai. "With the newest options for our high-quality camera systems, customers can cost-effectively and efficiently bring 4K and HDR into their production workflows without jettisoning all of their existing infrastructure, equipment and displays. We look forward to highlighting these advantages to integrators and end users at InfoComm."
