Ikegami unveils HDK-77EC portable camera
Ikegami at the NAB Show introduced the HDK-77EC portable, multiformat HD CMOS camera designed for a variety of HD applications, including stadium/arena scoreboard, house of worship, education and other production applications.
Featuring CMOS sensors for 1080i/720p HD format flexibility, lower power consumption and reduced operating temperature, the HDK-77EC is a docking-style camera that comes packaged with the CCU-890T camera-control unit for triax connectivity.
The company also introduced the new CCU-890M with built-in triax and fiber for convenient mobile-unit flexibility. Intended for use with the HDK-79EC, as well as Ikegami’s new HDK-77EC, the user’s choice of camera cable type is determined by a simple switch at the CCU, combined with mounting the docking triax adapter or fiber adapter to the camera head.
