Studio Berlin expands OB van fleet with U10 and sets standards with new OB van concept Posted: 30/09/2021
Studio Berlin expands OB van fleet with U10 and sets standards with new OB van concept

The German-based TV production service company Studio Berlin has commissioned a new UHD/HDR OB van, the U10, which has already been successfully used in the live production of the German Television Award (RTL). Studio Berlin pursued innovative paths for mobile production units in the planning and implementation of U10. With approx. 60 m2 working space the OB van offers up to 26 people sufficient space for a relaxed working atmosphere. It can work with up to 24 UHD cameras and partners perfectly with a modern support truck. U10 is the second production vehicle (after the U9) that Studio Berlin planned and built with the German system integrator Broadcast Solutions. The most significant innovation leveraged with U10 and never been implemented in this consistency before is the separation of control room and technology. The technical components are not installed in the OB van, as is usually the case, but are housed in a central equipment room in the support truck. A fibre interlink connects both vehicles. Because of the vehicle's size and concept, Studio Berlin is well equipped to realise even the most prominent sports productions and show events.

Ikegami Announces UHK-X700 2 3-inch 4K-Native Global Shutter 3-CMOS Sensor UNICAM System Camera

Ikegami announces a major addition to its UNICAM XE 4K system camera series. The UHK-X700 incorporates three newly developed 2/3-inch CMOS 4K sensors with global shutters to eliminate rolling shutter distortion and flash-banding artefacts.

"Designed for broadcast-quality video production and online streaming applications, the UHK-X700 looks set to become the flagship of the UNICAM series," comments Michael Lätzsch, Broadcast & Professional Video Division Manager at Ikegami Electronics (Europe). "It provides the high signal quality, versatile connectivity and robust build that are essential in today's multi-resolution media world. That includes full support for high dynamic range imagery with HLG or standard dynamic range, as well as the possibility to independently choose between BT.2020 and BT.709 colour spaces. High frame-rate shooting at up to 2x speed in 4K or up to 8x speed in HD via the base station is possible as an option, for applications such as capturing fast motion in sport or stage events."

When combined with the Ikegami BSX-100 base station, the camera optionally supports simultaneous output in 4K/HD video formats, including mixed sources. 4K video is available as a 12G-SDI feed directly from the camera head, allowing the UHK-X700 to be integrated into a wireless system.

Doha 360 Selects Ikegami UHK-430 and HDK-99 Cameras for New 4K OB Vehicle

Ikegami UHK-430 and HDK-99 cameras have been selected for a recently completed 4K OB vehicle commissioned by Doha 360, an IP-based media platform which enhances Qatar's national identity and reflects social and cultural progress through continuous coverage of cultural, sports and social events.

Designed and built by Milan-based broadcast system integrator Aret Video & Audio Engineering, the vehicle was commissioned in time to cover the Qatar National Day festivities celebrating the country's foundation in 1878.

"The Ikegami cameras were selected both for their high signal quality and for the proven excellence of Ikegami post-sale support," comments Aret's Vice President Alessandro Asti. "Eight UHK-430 models have been purchased plus two docking-style HDK-99. All 10 cameras can be tripod or pedestal mounted to achieve steady long-zoom closeup capture of fast-moving action while retaining the freedom to operate in free-style over-the-shoulder mode. The HDK-99 can be configured to feed directly from the camera control unit into any 4K periphery."

Ikegami Announces BSX-100 3G Fibre Base Station Posted: 15/06/2020
Ikegami Announces BSX-100 3G Fibre Base Station

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.
