Yes Productions acquires Ikegami CMOS cameras

Yes Productions, the sports and entertainment production company and wholly owned subsidiary of WYES-TV in New Orleans, has purchased nine Ikegami HDK-79EC CMOS-equipped HD cameras for its flagship HDTV truck, the YES HD.

The HDK-79EC’s three 2/3in 2.5 megapixel 1920 x 1080 CMOS imaging sensors are switchable between native interlace and progressive-readout modes and can provide 1080/60i, 1080/24p, or 720/60p performance. Optional formats also available include high-speed dual-link 1080/60p, 1080/50i and 720/50p, and — for Super Slow Motion — 1080/120i and 720/120p.

The new Ikegami cameras incorporate the company’s Chip C4 ASIC technology, which enables it to easily handle a wide range of lighting conditions encountered in outdoor broadcasting. It also includes advanced digital-imaging features, such as Knee Detail, Smooth Knee and Super Color Knee.

Earlier-model Ikegami HD cameras that had been carried on the truck will be used to upgrade a second Yes Productions mobile unit to HD.
