Bexel And Ikegami Join To Enhance Camera System
Bexel Broadcast Services and Ikegami have joined to focus their efforts on Ikegami’s HDK-79EC HD native multi-format CMOS camera system into Bexel’s rental inventory. Bexel will bring this new HD camera technology to its broadcast customers, live-event producers, and mobile truck companies as part of its continued investment in HD broadcast equipment. The HDK-79EC HD will be available for rent through Bexel’s ten-location national network.

The agreement also calls for several cooperative marketing and operational initiatives that will begin to roll out now that the market announcement has been made.

The HDK-79EC employs three, 2/3-inch 2.5 mega-pixel specified CMOS imaging sensors for high end picture quality and multi-format HD performance. These 1920H x 1080V active-pixel CMOS sensors are switchable between interlace and progressive readout modes. Providing a full 16:9 aspect ratio, the HDK-79EC’s CMOS sensors provide: 1080/60i, 1080/24p, and 720/60p. Also available are optional 50Hz formats, 1080/50i and 720/50p, and high-speed dual-link 1080/60p, and for Super Slow Motion, 720/120i.

Incorporating Ikegami’s sophisticated Chip C4 ASIC video processing technology, the HDK-79EC HD can be configured as a portable unit or as a studio camera (with full HD studio lens and nine-inch viewfinder) with Ikegami’s SE-79D System Expander. Additional system components include the CCU-790A full-digital camera control unit with built-in broadcast down-converter and the CB-79HD/TA-79HD triax adaptor system.

WMUR-TV Says FAA Drone Rules Preclude ENG
The FAA’s current rules and proposed ban on flight over people, requirement of visual line of sight and restriction on nighttime flying, effectively prohibit broadcasters from using UAS for newsgathering. ~ WMUR-TV General Manager Jeff Bartlett
