New model incorporates HITACHI CMOS imaging technology

Hitachi Kokusai Electric America Ltd. has announced the new Z-HD5500 HDTV studio and field production camera. Featuring Hitachi Kokusai’s latest advances in CMOS imaging technology, the Z-HD5500 addresses the challenges of shooting in studios and venues with low-cost or varying-frequency LED lighting, according to the company. Available immediately, the new camera will be showcased in booth C4309 at the upcoming 2017 NAB Show, taking place April 24-27 in Las Vegas.

 

The Z-HD5500’s new CMOS imagers adapt to a wide range of LED lighting conditions, as Hitachi confirms, enabling high-performance video capture in TV studios, houses of worship, theaters, arenas and other facilities where such lights or large LED displays are used.

 

“An increasing number of studios, churches and venues are integrating LED lighting, display and projection systems that operate across a wide array of frequencies,” has said John J. Humphrey, Vice President of Business Development, Hitachi Kokusai Electric America Ltd. “The Z HD5500 is optimized to deliver impeccable results in these environments, while retaining the exceptional price-performance value our customers expect from HITACHI cameras.”

 

The Z-HD5500 offers High Dynamic Range (HDR) capabilities. It supports both the HLG (Hybrid Log-Gamma) and HPQ HDR specifications, and it is also the first camera in the HITACHI Z-HD family to offer native 1080p image acquisition.

 

The Z-HD5500 provides an optional support for both SMPTE fiber and triax infrastructures. The camera can be paired with dedicated fiber or triax camera control units (CCUs), or with the dual-cable HITACHI CU-HD1300FT. The CU-HD1300FT offers both optical fiber connectivity and Hitachi Kokusai’s fourth-generation digital triax system, which features an ultra-low-latency H.264 codec technology and multilevel digital modulation for long-distance triax transport of 3GB/s 1080p video plus intercom, teleprompter returns and other signals.
