Ikegami Bolsters Precence and Focuses on 4K at BVE2017 posted: 16/02/2017

Ikegami announces biggest presence ever at show showcasing revolutionary 4k workflows

Ikegami, a leading manufacturer of specialised cameras, image processing and transmission equipment, today announces that it will be showcasing its 4K-native 2/3 inch UHK-430 portable broadcast camera in its UK debut, on stand J.26 at BVE 2017. BVE 2017 is taking place from 28th February to 2nd March at the ExCel London.

Taking centre stage is Ikegami's UHK-430 portable broadcast camera. The newest addition to Ikegami's range of cutting edge cameras, incorporates three newly developed 4K-native 2/3 inch 8 megapixel CMOS sensors, delivering four times more image detail than high definition, boasting a colour depth of 10 bits per pixel. The UHK-430 also includes a B4 bayonet mount compatible with 2/3 inch HD & 4K lenses.

Other features never before seen in the UK is the UHK-430's unique two piece construction. The UHK-430 has an optical block supporting options such as 35mm 4K sensors or high frame rate sensors. The head can be detached and operated up to 50 metres from the camera body, allowing easy deployment on support devices such as long-reach camera poles.

At the heart of the UHK-430 is Ikegami's 5th generation high-speed video processing engine, the AXII, reducing power consumption and delivering a wide range of features. The AXII also provides the processing for Ikegamis newly developed transfer characteristic, which delivers high contrast for a wider dynamic range (HDR).

Another first for the UK is Ikegami's BS-98, the new half rack size base station. Providing rack-mountable fiber transmission units for UnicamHD series cameras, high quality 4K ultra HD and 3G /HD-SDI output are supplied simultaneously when connected with a UnicamHD camera, such as the UHK-430. The BS-98 is equipped with a built-in 4K SR CONV video processor to provide a high quality 4K (3840 x 2160) live output, allowing not only upscaling from HD signal but also Super Resolution with image enhancement in the Ultra HD band, a new technology to reconstruct high resolution signals that is not possible in conventional HD processing.

Accompanying the UHK-430 on stand J.26 will be a series of Ikegami's reference monitors including the HEM-2570W, HLM-2450WB, HLM-1751WR, HLM-1705WR and HLM-905WR, all built for television production studios, post production suites, master control rooms and playout centres.
