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).
