Buffalo Bills add Ikegami HDK-55 Full Digital HD Cameras
Franchise continues upgrade with portable cameras from Unicam HD Camera Series
MAYWOOD, N.J. –At the Buffalo Bills’ Ralph Wilson Stadium, two new Ikegami HDK-55 full digital HDTV cameras will be employed to help deliver entertainment that meets fans’ expectations.

The Bills selected the HDK-55, part of Ikegami’s new Unicam HD series, to produce in-game video, weekly programs and a live post-game show. Whether their video is being displayed on the 80-foot x 35-foot Diamond Vision Screen, via the in-stadium TV system, or on viewers’ home screens throughout New York State and Canada, the HDK-55s give Buffalo Bills fans a crystal-clear view of their team.

“Conditions during an NFL game will vary significantly from 12-4 p.m. in an outdoor stadium–we go from sunshine with stadium lighting to shade, but I need to make very few adjustments during that time,” said Stephen Asposto, video production director/engineer for the Buffalo Bills. “These cameras just perform extremely well, no matter what the weather is like.”

The Ikegami HDK-55 uses 1080i 2.3 megapixels AIT CCDs. Like the other cameras in the series, the HDK-55 is a compact low-profile camera head with docking adaptor for fiber or triax cable use.

“I was able to go through all of the HDK-55’s functions with our operators on the day of the first home game this season, and they were able to learn everything they needed to know,” Asposto said of the cameras ease-of-use.

The Bills also employ an Ikegami HDL-45 3CCD multi-purpose HDTV compact camera.

This camera is designed from the start based on 16-bit A/D and matching 16-bit DSP to maximize the benefits of high bit quantization. Especially for the dark areas of the picture, the higher gradation for gamma and other circuits improves the reproduction, providing for more natural color in the shadow areas of the picture. 2/3-inch 2.3 Mega pixel opzioni binarie AIT CCDs are employed to achieve 1000 TVL horizontal resolution with excellent signal to noise ratio of 60dB at F10 (1080/59.94i) or F11 (1080/50i) sensitivity.
