Representatives on the company's stand 535 will include Ikegami Electronics (Europe) Broadcast & Professional Video Division Manager Michael Lätzsch and Sales Engineer David Lieven. On demonstration will be the UHK-X700 4K-UHD camera, UHL-43 compact 4K camera, BSX-100 base station, HQLM-3125X master grade 4K monitor and HLM series HD monitors.
A recent introduction to Ikegami's Unicam XE 4K system camera series, the UHK-X700 offers high signal quality, versatile connectivity and robust build. It can be used in a very wide range of studio or location applications and couples with the BSX-100 to form a highly versatile system. At the optical front end are three 2/3-inch CMOS 4K sensors with a global shutter which provides freedom from rolling-shutter distortion and flash-banding artifacts. Full HDR/SDR support is provided plus the ability to choose between BT.709 and BT.2020 colour spaces.
A compact and lightweight UHD HDR camera with low power consumption, the Ikegami UHL-F4000 is designed for use in applications such as aerial video capture and studio robotics. Its high sensitivity sensors capture broadcast quality colour video across a wide range of night or day conditions. The camera head uses three CMOS global shutter sensors capturing natural images completely clear of geometric distortion and flash band effects. Image adjustment capabilities include noise removal, digital zoom, haze reduction, image sharpening, vertical image reversal and HD-from-UHD segment selection.
Ikegami's BSX-100 is a 12G/3G fibre base station offering a coherent upgrade path for broadcasters and production companies as they progress from SDI to IP, from standard dynamic range to high dynamic range and from high definition into HD/4K dual-format workflow. Designed as a multi-platform camera control unit, the BSX-100 is available for Ikegami HD and 4K camera systems, offering 12G and 3G HD-SDI connectivity. SMPTE ST.2110 media-over-IP interfacing is available as an option for use across 10GbE and 25GbE networks. An optional 4K output software key allows use of HD cameras in a variety of configurations which include simultaneous production in HD and 4K resolutions. HDR video with very high quality reproduction from dark to bright areas is supported together with wide colour gamut as standard.
The HQLM-3125X is a 31 inch Grade 1 4K-UHD HDR master monitor with 4,096 x 2,160 pixel 10-bit resolution and high brightness (1,000 candela per square metre). Designed for critical image evaluation in broadcast production control environments, it has a double-LCD-layer panel delivering a 1,000,000:1 contrast ratio with true black reproduction. A layer of light-modulating cells allows pixel-by-pixel control of backlight intensity, reducing light leakage and black floating. Fully compliant with BT.2020 wide colour gamut, the monitor incorporates single-channel 12G-SDI x 2, 3G-/HD-SDI × 5 and HDMI inputs as standard features. Viewing angle for critical image evaluation is a wide 178 degrees (horizontal/vertical). 1D and 3D LUTs are supported. The HQLM-3125X can be controlled locally from the front panel or remotely via Ethernet or RS-485.
