Leading off Ikegami's NAB 2011 exhibit is its new top-of-the-line 3G-SDI 1080/60p HD studio camera & the HDK-97A (or "Unicam HD").
This 16-bit portable companion-camera (a system-expanded "hard" camera version will be forthcoming) employs new AIT CCD imagers and an all-new digital video processing system for superior picture detail and accurate rendition of color gradations.
Delivering a choice of 1080/60p 4:2:2 or 1080/60i 4:4:4 color sampling & the new high bit-depth HDK-97A is designed for traditional-style multi-camera production applications.
A docking-style camera & the new HDK-97A also features a 3G fiber-transmission system from the camera head to its (also new) CCU.
Transmission options include an HD-SDI QTV signal for teleprompter (or vanity/program monitor) use and an HD-SDI "trunk channel &" which allows for connection of a second camera that doesn't have its own built-in fiber transmission system (such as a POV camera & including one paired with the HDK-97A in a stereoscopic 3-D application).
