Turner Studio's first HDTV truck will be outfitted with Ikegami digital cameras. The mobile production unit will go into the field in 2004 with 14 portable Ikegami HDK-79E cameras equipped with 2/3-inch 2.2 million-pixel 1080i FIT CCD image sensors.
Ikegami HDK-79E works in multi-format HD (1080i, 720p) and SDTV (480i, 480p). Additional versatility in field production comes with the TFC-TFH-790 Fiber/Triax converter system, for maximum transmission distance of 1,550 m, using a triax cable. Nine of the cameras come equipped with the Ikegami SE-79D System Expander, which enables the use of the 7-inch viewfinder and full studio lenses, converting the portable camera into a full-facility studio camera in less than a minute.
