The Ikegami HDK-99 is a 3G-capable docking-style camera for portable and studio applications.
Ikegami UHK-430 and HDK-99 cameras have been chosen for a recently completed 4K OB vehicle, designed and built by Milan-based broadcast system integrator Aret Video & Audio Engineering. The vehicle was commissioned in time to cover the Qatar National Day festivities celebrating the country’s foundation in 1878.
“The Ikegami cameras were selected both for their high signal quality and for the proven excellence of Ikegami post-sale support,” said Alessandro Asti, Vice President at Aret. “Eight UHK-430 models have been purchased plus two docking-style HDK-99. All 10 cameras can be tripod or pedestal mounted to achieve steady long-zoom closeup capture of fast-moving action while retaining the freedom to operate in free-style over-the-shoulder mode. The HDK-99 can be configured to feed directly from the camera control unit into any 4K periphery.”
Ikegami’s Middle East office, located in Dubai, assisted in the customer’s decision-making by providing consultation support and product demonstrations.
Ikegami's UHK-430 is a 4K-native camera system with simultaneous HDR/SDR processing. Its three 2/3-inch CMOS sensors provide full 3840 x 2160 UHD 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 broadcast lenses. An optional SE-U430 expander accommodates large studio or OB lenses.
The UHK-430 is a 4K-native camera system with simultaneous HDR/SDR processing and three 2/3-inch CMOS sensors.
An integrated Ikegami AXII processor enables the UHK-430 to deliver 40 gigabit/s uncompressed full bandwidth video transmission plus a wide range of features including 16-axis color correction and focus-assist for 4K and HD video modes. An optional Media over IP module for the CCU-430 allows 4K UHD video plus additional signals such as intercom and return-video feeds to be exchanged between the CCU-430 and a local IP network hub over a light weight optical fiber instead of requiring multiple SDI cables, allowing easy and low latency signal distribution. In its standard form, the UHK-430 weighs just 4.6 kg. Dimensions are 149 mm wide x 243 mm high x 340 mm front-to-back.
The Ikegami HDK-99 is a 3G-capable docking-style camera for portable and studio applications. It employs three 2.6-megapixel 2/3-inch CMOS image sensors delivering high picture quality in HDR at 1920 x 1080 resolution with progressive-scan. Like the UHK-430, the HDK-99 has an integrated Ikegami AXII processor. A lens aberration correction function minimizes resolution loss and colored 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 color, edge color and display time on the viewfinder are all adjustable from the camera menu.
