Ikegami to Exhibit Tapeless, Wireless HD Acquisition and Archiving Tools

Ikegami Electronics will showcase numerous new products at NAB2007, including the new HDL-45 and HDL-45P, as well as the HDL-F50 multiformat CMOS camera.

Ikegami will get HD power into tough locations with the new HDL-45 and HDL-45P one-piece full-digital HD "box" cameras. Featuring advanced 14-bit analog-to-digital conversion, the HDL-45 and HDL-45P deliver 1080i and 720p HD image-capture, respectively, and are designed for use in such locations as traffic and weather-cam mounts, goalposts, track-side or other out-of-reach vantage points.

The company also hopes to reach great heights with its new HDL-F50 multiformat CMOS camera, designed to meet the size requirements for gyro-stabilized aerial camera mounts, such as the "ball" mounts used on helicopters.

Now in their third generation, the latest Ikegami Editcam camcorders include the HDN-X10 EditcamHD, with a multiformat CMOS HD imager that uses Avid's high-quality DNxHD mastering codec to deliver 1920x1080 images that can be edited in real time.

Ikegami will also expand its Editcam product line with the new HDE-X11 Editcam Station HD portable tapeless Avid DNxHD native field recorder, enabling producers to record to FieldPak2 or RAMPak media from any HD camera or source.

Also on exhibit will be Ikegami's new HDS-300R external holographic drive, which enables users of Ikegami's Editcam and EditcamHD camcorders to transfer video content via network interfaces to highly stable 300 GB cartridges with all the advantages of tapeless nonlinear archiving and retrieval. Users can then erase their FieldPak2 or RAMPak media for repeated use.

Ikegami will also unveil the FE-100A Series of fiber-extension products, which enable users to configure these cameras for studio operation. Ikegami also expands its line of multiformat color LCD HDTV/SDTV models with the HLM-1710R, a 17-inch HD/SD multiformat color monitor that integrates a new LCD panel with a significantly improved total angle of view of 170 degrees.

Ikegami will be in booth C4226.
