SUNY Oswego Upgrades Studios to HD with Ikegami Cameras

Broadcast students at the State University of New York (SUNY) at Oswego now have access to three new Ikegami HC-HD300 CMOS-based cameras as part of the school’s Lanigan Hall production studio upgrade to full (1080i) high definition.

A highly flexible, docking style camera that represents Ikegami’s most affordable HD studio camera system, the HC-HD300 is ready for the studio or field. It features a newly developed 2.5 million pixel 1/3-inch 3-CMOS optical block design, in keeping with the outstanding imagery and same rugged construction of the broadcast-ready Unicam HD line.

The Ikegami HC-HD300 also works in conjunction with a camera control system consisting of the FA-300 Fiber Adapter and BSF-300 Base Station, utilizing Neutrik opticalCON DUO connectors and SMPTE hybrid fiber/copper camera cable.

With the Ikegami HC-HD300, Patrick Moochler, Chief Broadcast Engineer for SUNY Oswego, said that they have found the HD camera that’s optimal for their students, faculty, and budget. “We have to make smart decisions about our equipment that balance performance, value, and duration of use.”

The new Ikegami cameras were sold to SUNY Oswego by local reseller AV Corporation.
