An interview from the 2018 NAB Show in New York City with Alan Keil of Ikegami. Ikegami is a leading supplier of high quality professional broadcast equipment. The Ikegami name is recognized globally for its state-of-the-art television cameras, Medical cameras and CCTV equipment.
The Ikegami UHK-430 4K camera, from the company’s Unicam XE camera series, will be shown. 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).
Equipped with Ikegami’s latest AXII ASIC for low power and superior digital signal processing features, the UHK-430 attains 16-axis color correction from a 3D linear matrix. It also enables five Custom Gamma memories for HDR high dynamic range transfer characteristics, including HLG and iLog. The UHK-430 employs 40G transmission using standard SMPTE hybrid fiber/copper camera cable, uncompressed 4:4:4 resolution RGB transmission, with eight HD channels from CCU to camera, and one HD trunk channel from camera to CCU. In addition, a Gigabit Ethernet connection is available on the Ikegami UHK-430 camera for external use. The UHK-430 is switchable between 4K and 2K formats. As an option the CCU can output simultaneous 4K and 2K, with available 2K cutout from the 4K picture. A plug-in output module allows for flexible 4K signal formats including Quad 3G, 12G, and IP.
From Ikegami’s Unicam HD camera series, the HDK-73 camera will be exhibited featuring F12 high sensitivity 2/3-inch CMOS sensors with exceptional picture quality in either 1080i or 720p in a cost-effective camera system. The HDK-73 has docking style construction allowing studio configuration with fiber or triax base stations, as well as self-contained operation for wireless or onsite recording applications. Fiber configurations include a choice of SMPTE or OpticalCon connectors. There is a full range of control panels from simple to sophisticated.
The HDK-73 includes key features such as Ikegami’s Quick EZ Focus assist and CAC chromatic aberration correction. Also included is HLG hybrid log gamma for HDR picture origination.
All of the monitors in Ikegami’s new HQLM series have advanced HDR capabilities, complying with HLG and SMPTE ST 2084(PQ), among other standards. They include the new Ikegami HQLM-3120W 31-inch 4K/HD multi-format LCD monitor equipped with two channels of 12G-SDI input as standard, for efficient configuration with 4K equipment such as cameras and switchers. In addition, it includes 3G-SDI, HD-SDI and HDMI inputs as standard, with the flexibility to work with various interfaces in the image production field.
Ikegami’s HQLM-3125X 31-inch 4K/HD multi-format LCD master monitor is also part of the series, employing a direct backlit 4096 x 2160 pixel 10-bit resolution UHD LCD panel with a contrast ratio of 1,000,000:1.
The new Ikegami HQLM-1720WR 17-inch 4K/HD multi-format LCD monitor is equipped with the same complement of inputs as the other 4K models in a compact rack mount size. The monitor uses an LED backlit panel with 3840 x 2160 pixels and maximum brightness of 450cd. Faithful color reproduction is assured, switchable between 2020 and 709.
There are three models comprising Ikegami’s full HD HLM 60 Series. The HLM-2460W 24-inch HDTV/SDTV full HD pixel multi-format LCD color monitor has a 24-inch full HD 1920X1080 pixel 400cd, 10-bit resolution LCD panel. Offering very narrow front-to-back dimensions, light weight and low power consumption, the HLM-2460W provides SDI, 3G-SDI, HDMI, Ethernet and analog composite inputs as standard. By employing a full 1920×1080 pixel LCD panel with a wide viewing angle, high brightness, high contrast, fast motion response, and high-quality color reproduction, this new monitor achieves real pixel allocation without resizing.
Ikegami’s new HLM-1760WR 17-inch HDTV/SDTV full HD pixel multi-format LCD color monitor will also be at the 2018 NAB NY Show. With a 17-inch full HD 1920×1080 pixel 450cd, 10-bit resolution LCD panel, it offers very narrow front-to-back dimensions, light weight and low power consumption in an optimum size for rack mounting. Multi-format SDI, 3G-SDI, HDMI, Ethernet and analog composite inputs are standard.
Joining the 60 series is the new HLM-960WR nine-inch HDTV/SDTV full HD pixel multi-format LCD color monitor. Highly compact with a 9-inch full HD 1920X1080 pixel 400cd 8-bit resolution LCD panel, it also provides very narrow front-to-back dimensions, lightweight and low power consumption, suitable for studio and field applications.
