Ikegami announces the EAME introduction of its UHL-43 compact box-style multi-purpose digital camera. Debuted at the April 2019 NAB Show in Las Vegas and now available in Europe, Africa and the Middle East, the UHL-43 is designed for applications such as robotic studios, outside broadcasting of live events such as sports, parliamentary television, point-of-view image capture, weather coverage, traffic surveillance and public security monitoring.
With main-unit width/height/depth dimensions of just 145 x 155 x 169 mm and weighing just 2.6 kg, the camera head can be used on practically any support device such as a shoulder harness, long-reach arm or overhead mount.
The UHL-43 employs three 2/3-inch 4K-native 8 megapixel CMOS sensors in the same workflow and remote control structure as Ikegami’s Unicam XE series UHK-430 and UHK-435 cameras. Unlike cameras using a single chip or pixel-offset technology, the integration of three 3840 x 2160 resolution CMOS sensors and prism optics provides true UHD capture resolution, high quality colour reproduction and complete freedom from colour aliasing.
Combining high sensitivity (F11 in 4K 50p) and very high signal-to-noise ratio (typically 62 dB), the UHL-43 can be deployed even in conditions of low illumination or high contrast. Fully supporting HDR, it delivers detailed picture quality across the full range of brightness levels from deep black to peak white while also capturing wide colour gamut. Hybrid Log Gamma mode is included, conforming to the ITU-R BT.2100 international standard for high dynamic range. Custom gamma curves can also be set and stored within the camera.
Available as an HD-HDR model, the UHL-43 can be upgraded via a retrospective software update to deliver 4K-UHD. Output options supporting 12G-SDI or 4 x 3G-SDI over electrical cable or optical fibre are available. An RJ45 Ethernet connection enables remote camera operation via network hubs with low latency for use in remotely controlled studio production.
All control functions are accessible at the camera head or via a choice of remote control panels from Ikegami’s OCP-series. The integral Ethernet interface allows easy control from practically any distance, making the camera ideal for remotely supervised outside broadcasting.
