Hitachi SK-HD1000 camera
At NAB, Hitachi will introduce its upgraded SK-HD1000 camera, which has a 60 dB HDTV signal-to-noise ratio at F10.0 and a real-world resolution of 1100 horizontal TV lines. The camera also gains new functions, control panels, CCUs, and other production accessories.

Starting with a new generation of RGB 2/3-inch progressive CCDs, each with 2.2 million pixels, the camera offers 14-bit A to D converters. A 12-vector masking system controls hue and color saturation to tailor reproduction to EBU, SMPTE or any other color standard for HDTV and SDTV separately. A special gamma function provides fine adjustment of the gamma curve and colors in the darkest potions of the picture to allow film-like image capture.

The new CCU design model CU-HD1000 equally offers exceptional flexibility by providing users not only choice of fiber or digital triax/coax transmission, but also an optional cross-converter to make 720p out of 1080i and embedded professional quality digital audio in the HD-SDI outputs. The CCU can accept a front-mounted control panel and uses a full 4 RU high EIA 19-inch rackmount and blank panel since the unit is only 1/2-rack wide.

For customers having SD and HD control rooms, the CCU accepts dual controls, provides both SD and HD formats and its control system is network-ready via the provided RJ45 port. User serial data as when used with a robotic pan/tilt head can also be transported to and from the camera head via the RS232C port on the CCU.

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
