SK-HD1000 Handheld HDTV Production Camera

 

The SK-HD1000 is Hitachi’s Multi-Standard portable HD Studio and EFP camera. Outstanding images are acquired by three (R,G,B) 2.3 megapixel UAIT (Ultra-Advanced) CCDs. The camera offers sharper and cleaner HD images due to our newest CCD sensors and processed by 30-bit Hitachi DSP’s. Hitachi’s implementation of the most advanced digital processing technology provides low-noise and high dynamic range pictures.
