 Dynamic possibilities for HD HDR cameras Ikegami Electronics (Europe) By David Fox The new HDK-99 is the latest step in Ikegami’s roll-out of HD cameras that support high dynamic range (HDR) shooting. Following the HDK-73 launched at IBC last year, the HDK-99 is a docking- style camera for portable and studio applications, with three 2.6MP high-performance CMOS image sensors delivering high picture quality in HDR at 1920x1080 with progressive-scan. Processed UHD can be sourced from the camera control unit. Michael Lätzsch, broadcast & professional video division manager, Ikegami Electronics (Europe), said: “Our HDK-99 and HDK-73 cameras allow the full dynamic range to be captured within a single exposure setting, eliminating the need to adjust the optical aperture or imaging sensitivity in mid shot. The diff erence Say hi to a reliable control layer Broadcast Solutions By Mark Hallinger A new approach to control layers in broadcast and media te chnology environments is the IBC focus for Broadcast Solutions. The product is called hi, and the company claims it provides a reliable and easy to use control layer for installations. By using modern auto- discovery and zero- confi g technologies, hi in picture quality is nothing short of stunning when viewed on HDR-compatible displays such as our new HQLM-3125X broadcast production monitor.” The camera’s HLG (Hybrid Log Gamma) mode maintains the high contrast required for HDR and conforms to the ITU-R BT.2100 standard. Noise is less than -62dB and sensitivity is a high F12. The sensors natively support 1080i at 50/59.94/100/119.88 and 1080p 23.98/25/29.97/ reduces the setup and confi guration time of a system dramatically, claims Broadcast Solutions. The system can be used with almost every environment: a PC, on a Mac, on tablets, or from a smartphone. Built on decentralised software architecture, the hi Ikegami’s new HDK-99 full digital 3-CMOS 1080p HDR camera 50/59.94. Integral to the HDK-99 is Ikegami’s AXII processor which allows fast and precise colour matching for live multi-camera applications, system can run on almost any platform from a laptop, dedicated servers, server clusters, or even from a data centre or a cloud service. This architecture ensures non-disrupted availability, even in the case of hardware, power or protocol failures. 8.D74 while a Lens Aberration Correction function minimises resolution loss and coloured edging caused by optical lens deviation. 12.A31 Modern: Auto-discovery and zero-confi g technologies reduce system setup and confi guration time
