Ikegami To Unveil Range Of Camera Systems And Monitors

News Image
Ikegami will promote the latest additions to its range of broadcast production camera systems and monitors at Hamburg Open 2022.

The show will be held Wednesday June 1st (10:00 - 18.00) through Thursday 2nd (10.00 - 16:00) in Hall B6 of the Congress Center Hamburg. Representatives on the company's stand 535 will include Ikegami Electronics (Europe) Broadcast & Professional Video Division Manager Michael Lätzsch and Sales Engineer David Lieven. On demonstration will be the UHK-X700 4K-UHD camera, UHL-43 compact 4K camera, BSX-100 base station, HQLM-3125X master grade 4K monitor and HLM series HD monitors.

A recent introduction to Ikegami's Unicam XE 4K system camera series, the UHK-X700 offers high signal quality, versatile connectivity and robust build. It can be used in a very wide range of studio or location applications and couples with the BSX-100 to form a highly versatile system. At the optical front end are three 2/3-inch CMOS 4K sensors with a global shutter which provides freedom from rolling-shutter distortion and flash-banding artifacts. Full HDR/SDR support is provided plus the ability to choose between BT.709 and BT.2020 colour spaces. High frame-rate shooting at up to 2x speed in 4K or up to 8x speed in HD via the base station is possible as an option, for applications such as capturing fast motion in sport or stage events. When combined with the Ikegami BSX-100 base station, the UHK-X700 optionally supports simultaneous output in HD SDR and UHD HDR video formats, including mixed sources. 4K-UHD video is available as a 12G-SDI feed directly from the camera head, allowing the UHK-X700 to be integrated into a wireless system. Weighing only 5 kg, the camera comes with a B4 lens mount and has an optical sensitivity of F11 when operating at 4K/50p. Peripheral options include the OCP-300 control panel and SE-U430 system expander. Ikegami also offers a choice of two types of viewfinders for this model: the VFL201D 2-inch LCD and VFL701D 7-inch full HD LCD.

Ikegami UHL-F4000 compact multi-role UHD HDR camera
A compact and lightweight UHD HDR camera with low power consumption, the Ikegami UHL-F4000 is designed for use in applications such as aerial video capture and studio robotics. Its high sensitivity sensors capture broadcast quality colour video across a wide range of night or day conditions. The camera head uses three CMOS global shutter sensors capturing natural images completely clear of geometric distortion and flash band effects. Image adjustment capabilities include noise removal, digital zoom, haze reduction, image sharpening, vertical image reversal and HD-from-UHD segment selection. A duplex optical fibre connection communicates between the camera head and CCU. These can be positioned up to 10 km apart. The optical fibre can be integrated into one bidirectional core via an optical circulator and passed through a single-core optical rotary joint used for a small gimbal. 12-volt DC power is the only other required connection to the camera head. Other signals include genlock and remote control interface to the CCU. The CCU is compact and lightweight, simultaneously delivering HDR-compatible UHD and HD video. Video processing is performed on Ikegami's AXII engine which supports a variety of imaging styles.

Ikegami BSX-100 UHD/HD multi-format fibre base station
Ikegami's BSX-100 is a 12G/3G fibre base station offering a coherent upgrade path for broadcasters and production companies as they progress from SDI to IP, from standard dynamic range to high dynamic range and from high definition into HD/4K dual-format workflow. Designed as a multi-platform camera control unit, the BSX-100 is available for Ikegami HD and 4K camera systems, offering 12G and 3G HD-SDI connectivity. SMPTE ST.2110 media-over-IP interfacing is available as an option for use across 10GbE and 25GbE networks. An optional 4K output software key allows use of HD cameras in a variety of configurations which include simultaneous production in HD and 4K resolutions. HDR video with very high quality reproduction from dark to bright areas is supported together with wide colour gamut as standard. The Ikegami BSX-100 provides full support for HLG in conformance with ITU-R BT.2100 which is the international standard for HDR. The base station includes HDR to SDR conversion and can be operated in any desired combination of HD or 4K resolution and SDR or HDR simultaneously. Housed in a 3U high half-rack-width low-mass unit, the BSX-100 is easily integrated into mobile production vehicles and other locations where space is limited.

Ikegami HQLM-3125X master grade 4K monitor
The HQLM-3125X is a 31 inch Grade 1 4K-UHD HDR master monitor with 4,096 x 2,160 pixel 10-bit resolution and high brightness (1,000 candela per square metre). Designed for critical image evaluation in broadcast production control environments, it has a double-LCD-layer panel delivering a 1,000,000:1 contrast ratio with true black reproduction. A layer of light-modulating cells allows pixel-by-pixel control of backlight intensity, reducing light leakage and black floating. Fully compliant with BT.2020 wide colour gamut, the monitor incorporates single-channel 12G-SDI x 2, 3G-/HD-SDI × 5 and HDMI inputs as standard features. Viewing angle for critical image evaluation is a wide 178 degrees (horizontal/vertical). 1D and 3D LUTs are supported. The HQLM-3125X can be controlled locally from the front panel or remotely via Ethernet or RS-485.
