Hitachi Ships New 3G SK-HD1200 Broadcast System Camera In Europe

Hitachi Kokusai Electric Europe has announced its new 16-bit SK-HD1200 1080P/3G production camera is shipping in Europe.
The firm (placed at stand 11.E30) comes to IBC 2012 with news that its new 16-bit SK-HD1200 1080P/3G production camera is shipping in Europe.
The SK-HD1200 is Hitachi’s fourth generation HDTV camera that employs market leading progressive scan CCD image sensors and highly-developed and patented 16-bit digital signal processing technologies. The camera represents the company’s highest performance, multi-standard HDTV studio and field production camera that satisfies regional TV systems worldwide having 50Hz or 60Hz AC line power and both analogue and digital signal outputs. 
The product of a long-term development initiative with Hitachi, the SK-HD1200 is capable of simultaneous SD and HD outputs and supports the widest range of HD signal formats, including 1080p, 1080i and 720p.
"We have showcased prototypes of the SK-HD1200 previously, but the news today is that this camera is here and available: furthermore the finished product lives up to all our hopes and expectations," commented Paddy Roache, Director and General Manager of Hitachi Kokusai Electric Europe. "Already, we have cameras in use with customers and the feedback we are receiving is very encouraging. This is one of the most significant new camera introductions we have seen for many years."
The lightweight 4.4Kg camera is a two-piece dockable design. Hitachi’s efforts to miniaturise electronic circuitry has yielded not only the smallest and most flexible Hitachi HDTV camera ever, but also one of the "greenest" and most power efficient (22W camera head power consumption) cameras on the market.
Setting new standards in imaging and digital signal processing
Hitachi has achieved an extremely low noise HDTV image, which is the foundation for its high performance and superior picture quality. With the integration of new 2.3 million pixel, micro-lens array, native 1080p CCDs, the SK-HD1200 provides significantly higher performance than all prior models. These new sensors enable the SK-HD1200 to achieve superior horizontal and vertical resolution, dynamic range response, sensitivity and ultra-low vertical smear characteristics.
