SK-HD1200 Handheld HDTV Production Camera

 

The SK-HD1200 is Hitachi’s top-of-the-line portable HD Studio and EFP camera. Outstanding images are acquired by three (R,G,B) 2.3 megapixel UAIT (Ultra-Advanced) CCDs. Hitachi’s implementation of the most advanced digital processing technology provides low-noise and high dynamic range pictures. The SK-HD1200 is progressive scan throughout the entire camera chain and outputs 1080p (SMPTE-424M) 3Gbps SDI. The HD signal is generated by our newest CCD sensors and processed by 38-bit Hitachi DSP’s. Progressive 1080 HD picture quality has been painstakingly implemented in this camera series.

Features & Functions

  • NEW 2/3-inch, 1080/60p, progressively scanned, (Ultra-Advanced) UAIT-CCDs.
  • 1,100TVL standard resolution
  • >60dB signal to noise ratio (1080/60p without noise reduction)
  • 38-bit per pixel per R,G,B channel Hitachi 40nm digital processing technology
  • 3Gbps HD-SDI signal handling from end-to-end.
  • Switchable between progressive and interlaced signal processing, transport and outputs.
  • Multi-format global design outputs signals applicable to most TV broadcast and production standards.
  • Transparent signal transmission and camera power is achieved by the use of SMPTE-311M hybrid optical fiber cable with up to 3Km (~9,842ft.) of operation distance.
  • The camera system can operate with SMPTE-311M hybrid fiber cable or common-off-the-shelf single-mode (with external camera head power). SM fiber can be used up to 10Km (~33,000ft.) without external adapters, accessories or modifications.
  • The camera system can use an optical routing system to connect multiple camera heads to any nuMBer of CCUs thus, simplifying and lowering the cost of large camera systems’ interconnect.
  • NEW control panels (SU-1000 and RU-1500 series) can control a camera in a group of 128 when connected via the TCP/IP camera control network.
  • NEW camera control unit (CCU) CU-1200 and existing models can be addressed and controlled via a common TCP/IP data network.
  • Dual 1080/60i camera head operation allows 2 camera heads to be connected to/ controlled by 1 CCU. Both camera head outputs are independently provided at the output of the CCU. (3D production applications).
  • Dual 5-position motorized filter wheel is optionally available.
  • Low power 24W consumption (camera head + lens + optical cable adapter)
  • 2-piece dockable design improves maintenance and equipment availability.
  • Choice of 3 different joystick or rotary-type and with LCD-display operation panels
  • Prompter and talent monitor power and video outputs available at the camera head.
  • Independent HD-SDI VF output for crane or Jib installations.
  • VF Focus assist (VF Area marker, Focus indicator and gauge)
  • 9-inch high resolution LCD Color viewfinder (VF-L90HD)
  • 5-inch high resolution B/W CRT (4:3) viewfinder, VF-HD500 for EFP use
  • 2-inch high resolution B/W CRT (16:9) VF-402E for ENG use
  • Compatibility with all Fujinon Precision Focus lenses.
  • Digital optical extender function
  • 2 independent CCU Return signals, inputs can be HD (HD-SDI single or dual link) or SD, analog or digital selectable
  • Full automatic setup using Gray Scale.
  • Digital registration or lens’ lateral chromatic aberration adjustment.
  • Direct data transfer from SU or SD memory cards used at camera head and control panels.
  • HD signal linear masking & 12-vector color painting.
  • Independent control of HD & SDTV detail
  • Ultra Gamma (Selectable Gamma table with 7 presets).
  • Black stretch/ black press.
  • Preset Masking (6 settings: DEFAULT, ITU-709, SMPTE-240M, SMPT-WIDE, NTSC, EBU).
  • 2 channels Flesh-tone masking and multiple memories Flesh-tone detail correction settings.
  • Knee saturation and Knee detail functions.
  • Real-time and offline diagnostic system with character display superimposed on PIX video output.
  • Accepts Analog VBS/BBS or HD Tri-level sync as genlock.

Configuration

  • Available Studio Adapter for use with all Broadcast box, compact studio and hand-held 2/3-inch bayonet lenses.
  • Cable-less Studio Adapter interface allows trouble free operation.
  • 2-piece dockable design allows easy configuration change and maintenance.
  • Maintains backwards compatibility with existing HITACHI HDTV control panels, cables, and viewfinders.
  • Ethernet control and assignment of control panels and CCUs.
  • Can operate over Single Mode Fiber (SMF) without expensive converters.
