The HDK-99 is the successor to Ikegami’s HDK-95C, and the premiere offering from the company’s Unicam HD line. It employs three 2.6 Megapixel high performance CMOS image sensors capturing full HD 1920 x 1080 resolution. Along with a wide dynamic range of more than 600%, and high sensitivity of F11 (59.94Hz).

A native multi-format camera, the HDK-99’s CMOS sensors support progressive and interlace readout. It natively supports 1080i /59.94, 1080i/50, 720p/59.94, 720p/50, 1080p/29.97, 1080p/25 and 1080p/23.98. It also supports 1080p/59.94, 1080p/50, 1080i/119.88, and 1080i/100 3G HDTV formats. The camera also supports Hybrid Log Gamma(HLG) conforming to BT.2100.

The HDK-99 uses Ikegami’s AXII next Generation high-speed digital video processor was developed for the range of next-generation HD, 4K, and 8K cameras, with the ability to perform high speed processing of video signals in multiple formats and frame rates. 

The AXII DSP in the HDK-99 incorporates a 3D color matrix enables precise color adjustment. The 16 axes of the color gamut can be fine-tuned in both hue and saturation. The camera has Lens Aberration Correction function and the Quick EZ Focus Assist Function provides enhancement to the viewfinder signal for critical focus adjustments.

The HDK-99 can be outfitted with several available adapters and CCU’s, base stations, and control panels.
