SK-HD1300 Progressive HDTV Production Camera

 

The SK-HD1300 is Hitachi’s top progressive scan HD Studio and EFP camera. Outstanding images are acquired by three 2/3” 2.3 megapixel progressive scan MOS imagers. Hitachi’s implementation of the most advanced digital processing technology provides extremely low-noise pictures. Selectable High Dynamic Range profiles provide outputs of 1080/60p, 1080i, 720p and SD-SDI.

A new CU-HD1300(X) is a multi-format CCU that optionally connects to long-range triax and/or SMPTE fiber optic cable by simply switching the camera head adapters. Optional CCU versions include 12G upconverted output with simultaneous SDR and HDR out with individual adjustments. A different CCU version offers ST 2110 Video over IP.
