Ikegami at NAB Show New York 2023
- 12 October, 2023
Showcasing Latest-Generation Broadcast Production Equipment.
USA: Ikegami, a leader in HD and UHD cameras and production equipment for TV broadcasters, networks and other content creators, will promote the latest additions to its product range at NAB Show New York in the Javits Center, October 25-26. Exhibit highlights on Ikegami booth 623 will be the UHK-X600 and UHL-43 cameras plus the HQLM-3120W 31 inch 4K/HD multiformat LCD monitor.
Ikegami UHK-X600 4K-upgradeable 3-CMOS Full-HD portable HDR wide color gamut camera system
Latest addition to the Unicam XE line, the UHK-X600 is a broadcast-quality Full-HD studio/EFP camera built to withstand the rigours of OB and EFP as well as studio operation. It can be pedestal or tripod mounted or operated over the shoulder. At the front end are three 2/3-inch oversampling UHD CMOS sensors providing 1000 TVL resolution, minimal aliasing, plus 2000 lux sensitivity at f10 (60p). Standard features include full support for Hybrid Log Gamma HDR with the ability to select between BT.2020 and BT.709 chroma spaces. Global shutter imagers minimize artifacts when televising LED screen walls or flash/strobe-illuminated stage environments.
License-key based options for the UHK-X600 include support for 2x, 3x and 4x high frame rate capture plus 4K processing delivering 2000 TVL resolution when operating in 2160p. Plug-in hardware-based options include a SMPTE ST 2110 compatible media-over-IP interface board and optional 12G output board.
The UHK-X600 has a low vertical profile and weighs just over 11 pounds. It accepts a wide range of B4 lenses and supports chromatic aberration correction, vignetting correction, ramping compensation and remote control of backfocus (when also supported by the lens). Core of the electronics is a power-efficient ASIC which encapsulates a wide range of high-grade video processing functions into ultra-compact component dimensions. When combined with the Ikegami BSX-100 base station, the camera optionally supports simultaneous output in UHD and HD.
Ikegami UHL-43 4K-upgradeable 3-CMOS Full-HD compact multi-purpose HDR WCG camera
The UHL-43 is a compact box-style camera designed for applications such as robotic studios, live-event broadcasting, parliamentary television and point-of-view image capture. The camera head can be used on practically any support device such as a remote pan & tilt, long-reach arm or overhead mount.
The UHL-43 employs three 2/3-inch UHD CMOS sensors in the same workflow and remote control structure as Ikegami’s Unicam XE series UHK-X600, UHK-X700 and UHK-750 cameras. Unlike cameras using a single chip or pixel-offset technology, the integration of three UHD resolution CMOS sensors and prism optics provides true 2000 TVL capture resolution, high quality color reproduction and complete freedom from color aliasing.
Available as a Full-HD model, the UHL-43 can be upgraded to deliver 4K-UHD. HLG HDR is supported as standard in HD and UHD. Output options supporting 12G-SDI or 4 x 3G-SDI over electrical cable or optical fiber are available. All control functions are accessible at the camera head or via a choice of remote control panels from Ikegami’s OCP-series. The integral Ethernet interface allows easy control from practically any distance, making the camera ideal for remotely supervised outside broadcasting.
Ikegami 31 inch 4K/Full-HD HDR WCG master reference monitor
The HQLM-3120W is designed for use as a full 4K master reference monitor in television production studios, postproduction suites, master control rooms and playout centres. It employs an LED-illuminated 31.1 inch pixel LCD panel with full 4096 x 2160 resolution. This has a wide viewing angle allowing critical content evaluation within up to 178 degrees horizontal and vertical. Other performance parameters include high contrast ratio (1500:1 typical) and a wide chroma gamut, meeting the ITU-R BT.2020 standard specified for broadcast quality program production and international distribution.
A 4K signal source can be connected to the HQLM-3120W via four 3G-SDI inputs (square division or
two-sample interleave). Also provided are 12G-SDI 4K inputs plus a 3G/HD-SDI input and an HDMI input.
In addition to its picture monitoring capabilities, the HQLM-3120W is equipped to operate as a waveform monitor and vectorscope. It can also display vertical-interval timecode, eight channel SDI-embedded audio level and closed-caption subtitles. Audio output is available through the monitor’s internal stereo speakers, stereo headphone jack and stereo line out.
