Ikegami announces new-product lineup for CABSAT 2015
Ikegami has chosen CABSAT 2015 as the launch venue for a new development in its Unicam HD range of broadcast camera systems with the introduction of the Super Resolution Technology (SRT) HD to 4K upconverter. Also on display will be the HC-HD300 3-CMOS studio camera, first announced in Q3 2014 and now deliverable.

Representatives on the Ikegami stand, Hall 4, Stand 402, will include Yasunori Kanno and Michael Ltzsch from Ikegami Electronics (Europe) GmbH.


NEW: Ikegami 4K Hybrid Base Station

A plug-in board for the BS-98 Base Station, the new Ikegami HD to 4K upconverter performs intelligent upconversion from 1920 x 1080i and 1920 x 1080p (2K) high-definition source standards to 3840 x 2160p (4K) ultra-high-definition. The upconverter is compatible with Ikegami HDK-790GX/79GX, HDK-970A/97A and HDK-97ARRI cameras, enabling these to be used in a 4K hybrid production environment.

With its Super Resolution Engine, the Ikegami upconverter can detect edge artefacts caused by DTL correction in 2K source signals. Intelligent processing ensures that these edges are not exaggerated during the upconversion. Upconversion processing be performed automatically or manually customised. A Re-mastering mode can enhance the sense of resolution of a 2K signal using a Super Resolution Engine operated via the base station control menu. Source signal formats accepted include 1080i50 as well as 1080p23.98, 1080p25, 1080p29.97 and 1080p50.
 
The processor occupies a 20 x 120 x 124 mm card which slots directly into the rear of the BS-98 base station. Power consumption is 11 watts and operating temperature range is 0 to 40 Celsius.


MEA market debut: Ikegami HC-HD300 3-CMOS Studio/Field Camera

Also on show at CABSAT 2015 will be Ikegami's HC-HD300 3-CMOS studio camera system which makes its MEA market debut. The HC-HD300 is a compact docking-style camera for studio or field operation. An aggressively-priced addition to Ikegamis broadcast-ready Unicam HD product line, it meets the same high standard of imagery and has the same rugged construction.

The Ikegami HC-HD300 is equipped with a 1/3 inch bayonet lens mount and employs three 1/3-inch CMOS progressive-scan 1920 x 1080 native sensors in RGB prism formation. The camera delivers high quality pictures in all commonly used video formats: 1920 x 1080/50i, 1920 x 1080/59.94i, 1280 x 720/50p, 1280 x 720/59.94p, 720 x 576/50i (PAL) and 720 x 480/59.94i (NTSC).

Typical performance characteristics of the HC-HD300 in 1080/59.94i output mode are 1,000 television lines horizontal resolution, 58 dB signal-to-noise ratio and 2,000 lux sensitivity (89.9 per cent white reflection) at F10 aperture. Equivalent aperture in 1080/50i mode for this light level is F11.

Camera gain can be attenuated from mid level to -3 or -6 dB, or increased by +3, +6, +9, +12 or + 18 dB. Integral neutral density filters (100 per cent, 25 per cent, 6.2 per cent and 1.6 per cent) can be switched in as required, plus operator-selectable 3,200, 4,300, 6,300 and 8,000 kelvin electronic colour conversion. An electric shutter can be set to 1/100, 1/120, 1/250, 1/500, 1/1,000 or 1/2,000 second speed.

Supporting features include the focus assist and lens aberration correction functions employed in Ikegami's established UnicamHD range of cameras.

The HC-HD300 can be operated under local control or in conjunction with a newly developed control system. This consists of an FA-300 fibre adapter and BSF-300 base station. Light in weight and compact in size (1.5RU), the BSF-300 base station is easily integrated into any studio, mobile truck, or portable flypack. When using a hybrid fibre camera cable, the base station provides power to the fibre adapter and the camera itself.

OpticalCON Duo connectors allow use of SMPTE hybrid camera cables at up to 350 metres with a 2 inch viewfinder or 250 metres with a 7 inch viewfinder. For longer links of up to 10 kilometres between camera and based station, duplex single-mode fibre with common optical LC connectors for can be deployed.

The HC-HD300 weighs 4.5 kg including FA-300 fibre adapter and measures 139 x 270 x 337 mm (width x depth x height). Operating voltage range is 11 to 16 volts and power consumption (excluding FA-300) is 19 watts. The camera is designed for use within an ambient temperature range of -20 to +45 Celsius and 30 per cent to 90 per cent non-condensing operating humidity.

DPA Captures Sound for Netflix Original Film Posted: 21/10/2021
DPA Captures Sound for Netflix Original Film: Oxyg and egrave;ne

When it came time to record the Netflix original French-language film, Oxygène (Oxygen in English), the audio team had quite the challenge in front of them. The premise of the scientific horror film focuses on a scientist, played by French Actress Melanie Laurent, who has lost her memory, awakens, trapped in a medical pod and must find her way out before the oxygen levels diminish. Given the setting, the pod is used for 90 percent of the film and, with its tight quarters, Production Sound Mixer Ken Yasumoto and Boom Operator Josselin Panchout knew they needed a reliable and unobtrusive microphone solution, which they found in DPA Microphones.
