Japanese camera manufacturer Ikegami plans to put 4K UHD of its exhibit at IBC2016.

The company, which is making its IBC debut on stand 12.A31 will show its 4K-native 2/3 inch UHK-430 portable broadcast camera and the HQLM-3120W 31 inch monitor.

At the heart of the UHK-430 is a new processor, the AXII, reducing power consumption and delivering a wide range of features including 16-axis colour correction and new focus-assist for 4K and HD video modes.

The AXII also provides the processing for Ikegami's newly developed i-Log transfer characteristic which delivers high contrast for a wider dynamic range. This allows more image information to be retained for greater headroom and colour grading. The ITU-R BT.2020 extended colour space specification is supported in 4K mode. BT. 709 colour space is supported in both 4K and HD modes.

First in Ikegami's next-generation Unicam XE series, the UHK-430 employs three newly-developed 4K-native 2/3 inch CMOS sensors which provide full 3840 x 2160 ultra-high definition resolution plus the depth of field required for studio and outdoor production. The camera is equipped with a B4 bayonet mount compatible with 2/3 inch HD lenses. An optional SE-U430 expander accommodates large studio or OB lenses.
