Ikagami to Present 8K Solutions

MAYWOOD, NJ – Ikegami (www.ikegami.com), a maker of HD cameras and production equipment, will display a wide range of advanced systems and technologies at the 2015 NAB Show in Las Vegas next month. The company will once again host an 8K technology exhibit, updating attendees on the newest developments in the extremely high resolution format, Super Hi Vision. Ikegami Tsushinki has been collaborating with Japan Broadcasting Corporation (NHK) to develop a range of 8K UHDTV products.
A 4K technology exhibit will also be presented, featuring a new 2/3-inch CMOS 4K camera and a new 4K base station, compatible with existing Ikegami Unicam cameras. As part of the 4K exhibit, Ikegami will display Hibino Corporation's real-dot, full 4K, 293-inch LED display.
The newest addition to Ikegami’s Unicam HD product line, the HC-HD300 is a flexible, docking style camera that represents the company’s first affordable HD studio camera system. Ready for the studio or field, it features a newly-developed 1/3-inch 3-CMOS optical block design, in keeping with the high-quality imagery and rugged construction of the broadcast-ready Unicam HD line.    
The HDK-65C also joins the Unicam HD line. Equipped with native multi-format 2.5 million pixel, 2/3-inch CMOS sensors, the HDK-65C is available as a single-format system, and is software-upgradeable to additional HD formats. Providing end-to-end digital processing, it features a low-profile docking camera head for fiber, triax, or wireless applications.
According to Ikagami, CMOS sensors are now meeting and exceeding the performance of CCDs in sensitivity, signal-to-noise ratio, and resolution. They continue to offer low power consumption, no vertical smear, and a high degree of format flexibility.
