TV-Film, a Vienna-based company specialising in providing mobile television production services, outside broadcast vehicles and related equipment, has purchased Ikegami HDK-970A and HDK-97A cameras for its Ü6 OB truck. The sale was negotiated by Ikegami’s Austrian dealer, Avisys Electronics GmbH, which is also located in Vienna.
“TV-Film’s technical director, Thomas Volkl, chose the HDK-970A cameras to meet expanding demand for high-definition broadcast production,” comments Avisys CEO Keigo Yoneda. “Each camera was purchased complete with a CCU and 3G optical fibre transmission adapter. TV-Film has used Ikegami cameras very successfully for over 20 years and already owns four HDK-97A portable cameras, each of which is equipped with a digital triax system.”
Top of Ikegami’s Unicam HD line, the HDK-970A is a full digital 3G-HD-SDI 59.94/50 Hz studio/EFP camera system with advanced 16-bit digital signal processing. Increased dark-area graduation ensures natural colour reproduction across the full luminance range. Other features include operator-adjustable gamma curve, lens aberration correction and support for a wide range of HDTV formats including 1080i 119.88/100 Hz (optionally). Single and dual link outputs are available via Ikegami CCU-970 and BS-97 camera control units and base stations.
