FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
IKEGAMI AT NAB SHOW 2020: EXHIBITING LATEST ADVANCES IN 4K, 8K, HDR & IP TECHNOLOGY FOR CAMERAS AND MONITORING
New BSX-100 3G Base Station To Be Introduced; NAB Las Vegas Debuts for UHL-43 Multi-Purpose UHD/HD Digital Camera & ULE-217-HDR 21.5-inch Full Resolution HDR LCD Broadcast Monitor
NAB SHOW, BOOTH #C7219/MAHWAH, NJ – Feb. 18, 2020: Ikegami (www.ikegami.com), a leader in HD and UHD cameras and production equipment for TV broadcasters, networks, and other HD content creators, will display new systems for 4K, 8K, HDR & IP technology at NAB Show 2020. This year’s convention will be held April 18-22 at the Las Vegas Convention Center, with exhibits running April 19-22.
NAB Show 2020 will see the introduction of the Ikegami BSX-100 3G Fiber Base Station, a 3U high half-rack-sized low-mass unit designed for easy integration into mobile production vehicles and other locations where space is limited. Compatible with Unicam HD system cameras including the HDK-99 and HDK-73, the BSX-100 gives Unicam operators the freedom to upgrade from HD to 4K at any time, including options for up conversion from HD to 4K and ST-2110 MoIP Interface with its main output in HD or 4K.
The BSX-100 provides full support for Hybrid Log-Gamma in conformance with the international standard (ITU-R BT.2100). High dynamic range video with very wide range image reproduction from dark to bright areas is possible, as well as wide color gamut. Ikegami’s BSX-100 future proof design allows support for native 4K cameras with flexibility to provide 12G-SDI or quad link 3G-SDI outputs.
The Las Vegas NAB will also mark the debut of Ikegami’s UHL-43 Multi-Purpose UHD/HD Digital Camera. A one-piece UHD digital camera, the UHL-43 employs the same 4K-native sensors as the UHK-430 and UHK-435 “Unicam XE” series cameras, while achieving the same performance.
Employing the same operational workflow and system structure as Ikegami’s UHK-430 and UHK-435 models, the UHL-43’s compact one-piece form factor makes it ideal for POV applications such as robotic studio production, sports, traffic and weather coverage and video surveillance. Ikegami’s UHL-43 is similarly ideal for jib and Steadicam applications. Additionally, NAB will see the debut of the portable conversion kit for the UHL-43, featuring a top handle and 2-inch color viewfinder, as well as a shoulder pad and battery bracket for mounting both battery and wireless transmitter.
4K signal outputs available from the Ikegami UHL-43 include 12G-SDI and optional 3G-SDI Quad Link, allowing flexible system integration. The UHL-43 incorporates three 2/3-inch 8 megapixel CMOS sensors, each capable of capturing 4K-native 3840 x 2160 resolution images, and offering high sensitivity (F10 in 4K/60p) and very high signal-to-noise ratio. Unlike cameras using a single chip or pixel-offset technology, the three 4K-native CMOS sensors and prism optics provide real UHD resolution, superior color reproduction and no color aliasing.
The UHL-43 provides an HLG (Hybrid Log Gamma) mode conforming to ITU-R BT.2100, which is an international standard for High Dynamic Range. HDR enables the UHL-43 to deliver superbly detailed picture quality across the full range of brightness levels from deep black to peak white. With its wide color gamut, the camera also captures rich color.
In addition to native 4K, the UHL-43 can deliver HD/3G-SDI signals for main output. It has been designed to support 12G-SDI output interface as standard, ensuring flexible support for future trends in 4K system integration.
The Ikegami UHK-430 4K/HD Portable Camera, from the company’s Unicam XE camera series, will also be exhibited at NAB Show 2020. Designed for use in the studio and field, the UHK-430 provides Ikegami’s superb imagery in true 4K. It features three 2/3-inch 4K (3840×2160) CMOS sensors with RGB prism optics, for “Real 4K” resolution from 24 million pixels (8 million per sensor).
Ikegami’s HDK-99 3G 3-CMOS Full Digital HDTV Portable Camera will be demonstrated, representing the elite offering from the company’s expansive Unicam HD line. It employs three 2.6 Megapixel high performance CMOS image sensors for superb picture quality capable of capturing full HD 1920 x 1080 resolution. Along with a wide dynamic range of more than 600%, the HDK-99 captures superb HDTV video with its horizontal resolution of 1000TVL, SNR of 62dB or more, and high sensitivity of F11 (59.94Hz).
HLG (Hybrid Log Gamma) mode is featured on the HDK-99, conforming to the ITU-R BT.2100
International standard for HDR. HLG makes it possible to expand the range represented from dark to bright, providing superb bright pictures with High Dynamic Range, while achieving rich colors with wide color gamut. A native multi-format camera, the HDK-99’s CMOS sensors support progressive and interlace readout. It natively supports 1080i /59.94, 1080i/50, 720p/59.94, 720p/50, 1080p/29.97, 1080p/25 and 1080p/23.98. It also supports 1080p/59.94, 1080p/50, 1080i/119.88, and 1080i/100 3G HDTV formats.
Also making its NAB Las Vegas debut is the new Ikegami ULE-217-HDR 21.5-inch Full Resolution HDR LCD Broadcast Monitor. A professional multi-purpose monitor providing HDR video display for under $1000, with 3G/HD-SDI and HDMI interface, the ULE-217-HDR is ideal for PC applications or HD video monitoring. It’s VESA interface allows it to be easily racked, wall-mounted or used on a desktop.
These Ikegami systems and more will be on display throughout NAB, at Booth #C7219, April 19-22, 2020, at the Las Vegas Convention Center.
