Ikegami To Demonstrate Product Range At CABSAT

News Image
Ikegami will demonstrate the latest additions to its product range at the March 12th-14th 2019 CABSAT exhibition in Dubai's World Trade Centre.

The show is the largest of its kind in the Middle East, attracting visitors from Africa right across to India.

Featuring on the Ikegami stand, D3-20 in Hall 3, will be four cameras (UHK-430, HDK-99, HDK-73 and HDL-45E) as well as four production monitors (HQLM-3120, HLM-2460W, HLM-1760WR and HLM-960WR).

Ikegami UHK-430 4K-native IP-ready camera system
The UHK-430 is a 4K-native IP-ready camera system with simultaneous HDR/SDR processing. Its three 2/3 inch CMOS sensors provide full 3840 x 2160 ultra-high definition resolution plus the depth of field needed for studio and outdoor production. The camera is equipped with a B4 bayonet mount compatible with 2/3 inch HD lenses. An optional SE-U430 expander accommodates large studio or OB lenses.

Additional features include 12G, SQD, 2SI, 3G and IP CCU outputs plus an integral processor which allows 40 gigabit/s uncompressed full bandwidth video transmission. In its standard form, the UHK-430 weighs just 4.5 kg and comes with a 2 inch viewfinder and portable lens. Dimensions are 149 mm wide x 243 mm high x 340 mm front-to-back.

The integral Ikegami AXII processor enables the UHK-430 to deliver a wide range of features power-efficiently, including a 16-axis colour matrix and focus-assist for 4K and HD video modes. BT.2020 extended colour space specification is supported in 4K mode. BT. 709 colour space is supported in HD modes and can also be switched in during 4K operation.

Ikegami HDK-99 Full-HD HDR camera system with 4K processing
The HDK-99 is a docking-style camera for portable and studio applications. It employs three 2.6 megapixel CMOS image sensors delivering high picture quality in HDR at 1920 x 1080 resolution with progressive-scan. Processed 4K can be sourced from the camera control unit.

HLG mode maintains the high contrast required for HDR and conforms to the ITU-R BT.2100 international standard. Noise is less than -62 dB and sensitivity is F12. The sensors natively support 1080i /59.94, 1080i/50, 720p/59.94, 720p/50, 1080p/29.97, 1080p/25 and 1080p/23.98. Also supported are 1080p/59.94, 1080p/50, 1080i/119.88, and 1080i/100 3G HDTV formats.

Integral to the HDK-99 is the Ikegami AXII processor which allows fast and precise colour matching for live multi-camera applications. A lens aberration correction function minimises resolution loss and coloured edging caused mainly by optical lens deviation. Quick EZ Focus Assist enhances the viewfinder signal, enabling the camera operator to make critical focus adjustments. Area size, area colour, edge colour and display time on the viewfinder are all adjustable from the camera menu.

Ikegami HDK-73 3-CMOS Full-HD HDR camera
The HDK-73 is a dockable multi-role high-definition camera designed for standard-dynamic-range and HDR broadcast production. It is available as complete system including CCU, connecting fibre, viewfinder and remote control. Image capture is to 2/3-inch 2.6 megapixel CMOS sensors, each capable of 1920 x 1080 resolution images with an extremely wide dynamic range of 1,000% in HDR mode, high sensitivity (F13 at 50 Hz) and high signal-to-noise ratio. The sensors natively support 1080i/59.94 and 1080i/50, as well as 720p/59.94 and 720p/50 scan formats. Major features include full digital signal processing, advanced digital detail correction with independent horizontal and vertical correction of red, green and blue signals, and optional anti-moiré filtering.

Hybrid log gamma processing is operator-selectable for HDR picture origination, enabling high-contrast scenes to be televised with full picture detail across the entire brightness range from highlights, mid-range to shaded areas. Full digital signal handling is performed by the AXII processor operating in up to 38 bit depth.

The HDK-73's dockable structure allows studio configuration with fibre base stations as well as self-contained operation with a camera adapter for wireless or onsite recording applications. A fibre adapter can be attached directly to the camera head without need for external cables. External devices such as wireless transmission or a solid-state recorder can be attached for stand-alone operation, making the camera suitable for live sports, news gathering or field production.

An optional system expander (SE-H750) converts the portable camera into a full facility studio camera with studio viewfinder and studio lenses. The HDK-73 is fully compatible with the T-430 or T-791A tripod mounting plates. The T-430 provides increased stability and strength in holding the camera. For ease of use, the camera can slide into the plate from either the front or rear.

Ikegami HDL-45E POV camera
The HDL-45E is a 1.5G robotic point-of-view camera with three 2/3-inch 2.3 megapixel AIT CCDs, LSI digital processing and 14-bit A/D conversion. It is designed for remote-control applications such as news and weather presentation. An integral four-position optical filter can be operated from various remote panels including independent control of ND and ECC filtering.

Ikegami HQLM-3120W 31 inch 4K/HD production monitor
The HQLM-3120W is a 31 inch 4K/HD production monitor supporting BT 2020 UHD, HDTV, HDR and SDR. It is equipped with two 12G-SDI input channels as standard for efficient configuration with 4K equipment such as cameras and switchers. 3G-SDI, HD-SDI and HDMI inputs are also provided as standard. The monitor employs a 4096 x 2160 pixel UHD LCD panel with LED backlighting and can reproduce high resolution 4K and 2K images.

Ikegami HLM-2460W 24-inch and HLM-1760WR 17-inch Full-HD monitors
The HLM-2460W is a 24-inch Full-HD monitor with a 1920×1200 pixel 400 candela per square metre 10-bit resolution LCD panel supporting ITU 709 HLG. It offers very narrow front-to-back dimensions, light weight and low power consumption. Multi-format SDI, 3G-SDI, HDMI, Ethernet and VBS inputs are provided as standard. The HLM-2460W achieves real pixel allocation without resizing. Its gradation characteristics make it ideal for a wide range of broadcast applications, including use in monitor walls.

A smaller version of the HLM-2460W with similar features, the HLM-1760WR features a 17-inch display again supporting ITU 709 HLG. The panel is a Full-HD 1920×1080 pixel 450 candela per square metre 10-bit resolution LCD.

Ikegami HLM-960WR 9-inch multi-format LCD monitor
The Ikegami HLM-960WR is a highly compact multi-format LCD monitor with a 9-inch Full-HD 1920×1080 pixel 400 candela per square metre 8-bit resolution LCD panel supporting ITU 709 HLG. This model offers very narrow front-to-back dimensions, light weight, AC or DC operation and low power consumption. An optional battery bracket is available. A USB connector on the front panel allows setup file storage and recall as well as control-menu navigation via a plug-in pointing device.
