Ikegami revisits its 2022 steps towards IP and workflows in UHD and HDR
The company Ikegami has reported a continuing transition from HD-SDR to UHD-HDR across the EAME markets. “The transition from SDI to IP technology continues to gain momentum for studio and field applications, given the greater system flexibility and easy expandability of IP,” adds Alan Keil, Vice President and Director of Engineering at Ikegami Electronics (USA), Inc.
A highlight of the company’s exhibit at the April 2022 NAB Show in Las Vegas and September IBC in Amsterdam, the UHK-X750 IP-capable 4K-UHD HDR HFR full studio camera offers all the capabilities of flagship Unicam UHK-X700 except those that apply to portable shoulder operation.
Ikegami’s R2 Real Remote production system, announced at InterBEE 2022, allows efficient remote camera operation between the studio and the sub-control room. It is designed for use with cameras such as the compact full broadcast quality UHD/HD Ikegami UHL-43. Support is provided by a six-axis programmable articulated robot arm mounted on a motorized pedestal.
2022 sales highlights included camera systems for new studios and IP-linked production control facilities. Some of them are the ICE Kraków Congress Centre in Poland, Thai Parliament Television (TPTV), USA-based iFIT, Little Bay Broadcast Services LLC, and Somoy Television.
