Hitachi Announces U.S. Debut of Three HDTV Cameras at NAB Show
March 13, 2012
At the 2012 NAB Show, three new HDTV cameras by Hitachi Kokusai Electric America will make their U.S. debut. The first is the SK-HD1500, a slow-motion HD camera that records at 150 and 180 frames per second, and outputs digital HD/SD video at 1080i, 720p and 480i all at 59.94 or 50Hz field rates. It uses standard 2/3-inch Bayonet mount lenses, has three 2.3-Mpixel 2/3-inch, progressively scanned IT-CCDs, F9 sensitivity at 2000 lux, a signal-to-noise ratio of -58dB, and 1100 TVL of standard resolution.
It also offers digital-to-analog, 16-bit RGB converters for exceptional dynamic range, signal-to-noise, and color fidelity. It's capable of 6Gbps transmission over SMPTE standard optical fiber, and compatible with most slow-motion servers capable of 3X SMPTE292M 1.5Gbit/second HD-SDI links.
Also new is the Hitachi HV-HD33, a compact, 3-MOS sensor, multi-standard, P.O.V. HD camera designed for general observation situations where high sensitivity, low-noise, multi-standard signals, and low-user intervention are required. With a 1/3-inch C-mount lens, the HV-HD33 is Hitachi's most economical 3-MOS sensor, compact HDTV box camera.
For even more space- and price-constrained applications, Hitachi's new KP-HD20A offers excellent HDTV video from a single 2.1-Mpixel, 1/3-inch color CMOS sensor. Full raster 1920(H) HD at 1080/ 59.94i, 50i and 1080/ 25p/ 30p can be transmitted through 100m of coax, with fully unattended imaging, making it ideal for inhospitable locations.
The 2012 NAB Show takes place in Las Vegas, April 14-19. Hitachi will be at booth C4309.
