Ikegami Electronics Europe (www.ikegami.de) announces a new addition to its range of broadcast production equipment. The BSX-100 is a 3G fibre base station offering a coherent upgrade path for broadcasters and production companies as they progress from SDI to IP, from standard dynamic range to high dynamic range and from high definition into HD/4K dual-format workflow.
The BSX-100 is fully compatible with Ikegami Unicam HD system cameras, including the HDK-99 and HDK-73. It will also support Ikegami's future 4K-native cameras. In its standard form, the base station provides 3G-SDI/HD-SDI HD output.
SMPTE ST.2110 Media over IP interfacing is available as an option for use across 10GbE and 25GbE networks. Also available as an option is a 4K output software key allowing use of HD cameras in a variety of configurations which include simultaneous production in HD and 4K resolutions. Complementary 12G-SDI / 3G-SDI quad link interfaces are also available. This approach allows 3G camera systems to be integrated into 4K environments easily and cost-efficiently.
The Ikegami BSX-100 provides full support for Hybrid Log Gamma in conformance with ITU-R BT.2100 which is the international standard for HDR. Wide colour gamut is also supported.
