Hitachi To Demo Broadcast System Solutions At IBC

News Image
Hitachi Kokusai Electric has announced that it will demonstrate its broadcast system solutions – from broadcast and professional video camera systems to its OB-BOX concept, mobile transmission vehicles and the latest developments in broadcast antenna systems – at IBC 2016, stand 12.F38. 

The company will showcase its Live Production OB-Box, equipped with the new 4MOS sensor technology 4K production camera, 3MOS 1080p sensor SK-HD1300 series cameras, and 3CCD sensor SK-HD1200 production camera, in addition to the company's new 7.4 inch OLED viewfinder.

First introduced to the European market at IBC last year, 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 reduces the manufacture and delivery time as it removes the need to source and ship an appropriate vehicle for each customer.

Another example of Hitachi's Kokusai Electric's 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. 

Cemal Yilmaz, General Manager of Hitachi Kokusai Turkey, said: "At our Istanbul design and manufacturing facility we can conceptualize and supply any broadcast production system from field-based ENG teams to fully featured digital production studios, terrestrial transmission networks and satellite earth stations.

"At IBC, we will provide visitors with an insight to our market leading technology support capabilities. We look forward to a busy and exciting show."
