Viewers on the BT stand at IBC were able to watch live coverage of the Premiership Rugby 7s tournament taking place in Northampton, England. With four times the resolution of 4K, 8K captures an unsurpassed level of image detail.

Ikegami's fourth generation 8K camera, the SHK-810 is a portable model notable for the significant size reduction and lightweight design that it brings to field and live production, operating with the same ease as current broadcast cameras. It employs a 33 million pixel Super 35 mm CMOS sensor with a PL lens mount, achieving a horizontal resolution of 4000 TV lines. Built-in back focus adjustment is included for PL-mount lenses without shims.
