Yes Productions acquires nine Ikegami HDK-79EC HD cameras

The sports and entertainment production company will use the new HD cameras for studio and field applications.

Sports and entertainment production company Yes Productions has purchased nine Ikegami HDK-79EC CMOS-equipped HD native multiformat camera systems for field and studio use.

The HDK-79EC’s three 2/3in 2.5-megapixel 1920 x 1080 CMOS imaging sensors are switchable between native-interlace and progressive-readout modes and can provide 1080/60i, 1080/24p or 720/60p performance. Optional formats also available include high-speed dual-link 1080/60p, 1080/50i and 720/50p as well as 1080/120i and 720/120p for super slow motion.

The HDK-79EC incorporates Ikegami’s Chip C4 ASIC technology to process digital video output from the camera’s three CMOS sensors. Chip C4 processing includes: knee, gamma, color and DTL (detail) corrections; DTL corrections controlled include soft DTL, skin tone DTL, horizontal/vertical/diagonal DTL and DTL boost frequency.

Chip C4 technology enables the camera to handle the wide dynamic lighting encountered in outdoor broadcasting.
