Ikegami unveils wireless HD camera system
At IBC2009, Ikegami Electronics introduced a new wireless HD camera system for its studio/EFP cameras, including the HDK-79EXIII and HDK-727P.
The wireless transmitter is integrated in the compact camera housing. The system covers three main frequency ranges: 2GHz, 3GHz and 6GHz. A two-way diversity and a six-way diversity receiver are also planned.
While the distance between transmitter and receiver depends on the type of antenna being used, separation can be as great as 1640ft. In addition to video, the wireless system transmits camera control and tally signals.
