More Flexibility for High Image Quality
High Density CCDs
High-performance 520,000-pixel(NTSC) for HL-45 and 620,000-pixel(PAL) for HL-45 IT CCD image sensors provide exceptional smear
characteristics. A horizontal resolution of 900(HL-45) TV lines, or more, and a modulation depth of 75% (5MHz) deliver top-notch performance.
Newly-developed digital processing ICs (ASICs) with 10-bit analog to digital(A/D) conversion
deliver a high S/N ratio of 64dB (NTSC), 61dB (PAL). Because all the processing after PRE KNEE
is digitized, high image quality with rock-solid stability is achieved. Because the processes, such as
gamma and DTL, are also digitized, video with a good S/N ratio is maintained during operating
The Super-V function enhances the vertical resolution by 20% through combination of the frame
store mode and 1/60(NTSC), 1/50(PAL) shutter.
A six-axis color linear matrix circuit is incorporated to compensate for optics-related color
reproduction, thereby achieving vivid, true-to-life color tones.
The HL-45 delivers a dynamic range of 600%. Even for high contrast subjects, video with
proper contrast can be produced.
Sensitivity of f10(HL-45)
A sensitivity of f10(HL-45) at 2000 lx is realized. A greater depth of field
facilitates simple focusing. In addition, clear images can be acquired even when the camera is used
under poor lighting conditions.
Lineup for Supporting User Needs
In flexible response to diverse user needs, the HL-45(a fixed aspect ratio of 4:3)
RGB DTL Method
Conventionally, the vertical DTL signal is derived from the G signal alone, so that the sense of resolution
for red and blue subjects was insufficient. This shortcoming is overcome by the HL-45 which
produces independent vertical DTL signals from the respective R, G, and B signals, thereby substantially
enhancing the sense of resolution for red and blue subjects.
The Black Stretch function improves the reproduction in shadow areas of a subject by raising the video
level only for low-brightness portions. The stretch level is variable in 3%, 5% and 7%.
Numerous DTL functions are incorporated, such as, Diagonal DTL, soft DTL, Skin DTL, as well as
variable boost frequency (in 8 steps) and H/V balance.
The HL-45 is memory-card-ready so that camera operating status can be stored. Thus, camera setup, color
matching and identical DTL settings for several cameras is greatly simplified (The
SmartMedia with a capacity of 2MB is used for storage.
In addition to six shutter presets, a variable shutter is also employed which can be set from 1/60.3 to 1/201
(NTSC), 1/50.3 to 1/200 (PAL) of a second.
A +36dB gain allows for minimum illumination of 0.7 (HL-45) lx (f1.4). Because sensitivity is
enhanced electronically, loss of resolution is minimized.
The HL-45 has a built-in CC filter disk. A color temperature conversion filter can be
selected to best match surrounding illumination conditions.
The HL-45 comes standard with a 1.5-inch high-resolution viewfinder that delivers a
horizontal resolution of 600TV lines. This ensures clarity and consistently high image quality.
Shutter speed and Super-V can be set with a menu switch located on the switch panel. Various
camera settings can be made on screen in a menu-driven manner, thereby substantially improving
ease of operation.
Low Center of Gravity
The camera head is designed with a low center of gravity for operator comfort. The camera head is compact, weighing less than 6 pounds. High-density
CCDs are used, and the power consumption is a low 15W, thanks to newly developed ASICs.
A new non-slip material is used for the shoulder pad. Pad position can readily be adjusted front and rear,
as well as right and left angle.
Quest for Further Improvement in Operability
Main Features of New Triax System
Triax operation can be achieved by connecting the existing TA/BS/OCP-40. Remote control and
high-resolution video transmission can be implemented.
And also, a newly developed triax system (TA/BS/OCP-45) is now available. Moreover,
because a 5-inch or 6-inch VF can be mounted, the HL-45 can be configured as a studio camera.
Equipped with a pivoting type TRIAX connector.
Q-TV output available as an option.
Compact Size (4U half-rack size) and lightweight
SDI (D1) output and Q-TV
(max. 300m with 8.8 mm diameter TRIAX cable)
available as options.
DC operation available as an option.
Three types of control panels available.
Joystick operational remote control for HL-45 and BS-45.
Various set-up controls available by the remote function of the camera menu.
Compact control panel equipped with basic operating controls.
Can be attached to the front of the BS-45.
Full control of camera functionality.
Can be attached to the front of the BS-45.
Equipped with memory card function.
Rear Panel Adaptor/VCR Dockable
The HL-45 can be docked with various VCRs, with the aid of very compact VCR rear panel adaptors.
Dockable Disk Recorder (DNR-20)
The HL-45 can also be docked with a DNR-20, hard disk recorder, as well as a conventional VCR system.
