Ikegami HDTV Cameras Capture Boston's Magical Title Run
November 5, 2007
the Boston Red Sox captured their second World Series championship in four
years, F&F Productions LLC was there throughout the team’s run to the
title, capturing the drama at Fenway Park with Ikegami HDK-79EC native
multiformat CMOS HDTV camera systems from F&F’s GTX-15
mobile production unit.
CMOS (complementary metal oxide semiconductor) technology provides such
advantages as reduced power consumption, multiformat HD video capture, and
high-speed imaging capabilities. The HDK-79EC employs three 2/3-inch 2.5-megapixel-specified
CMOS active-pixel imaging sensors.
The HDK-79EC incorporates Ikegami’s C4 ASIC video processing technology and can be configured to use with triax or SMPTE fiber cable. Additional system components include the
CCU-790A full-digital camera control unit with built-in broadcast
downconverter and the CB-79HD/TA-79HD Triax Adaptor System. The
HDK-79EC’s nine-inch 16:9 color LCD viewfinder features a wide
viewing angle and low lag.
