Ikegami’s HDK-X500 3-CMOS HD to make its debut at IBC 2024

At IBC2024, Ikegami will be showcasing the HDK-X500 3-CMOS HD portable camera system, a versatile new addition to its range of broadcast-quality production equipment.

Gisbert Hochguertel, Europe Product Specialist, Ikegami, said, “The HDK-X500 is designed for use across a wide spectrum of applications. It can be configured easily for pedestal-mounted studio operation, tripod-based sports coverage and shoulder-mounted location production. 

“At the front end are three latest-generation 2/3-inch CMOS sensors with a global shutter architecture that enables the camera to capture natural images even in challenging situations.

“Still-frame replay of fast-moving objects, for example, is completely free from geometric distortion and there are no flash bands when the camera is capturing a strobe-illuminated stage or flash lighting from still cameras.”

The HDK-X500 incorporates Ikegami’s latest-generation AXII digital processor to deliver high-quality pictures, high reliability, lower power consumption and enhanced functions. Its capabilities include automatic optical vignetting correction throughout the range of OVC-compatible B4 bayonet mount zoom lenses, and remote back focus adjustment.

Hochguertel continued, “Optimal control of interior or exterior ambient lighting is supported by the same neutral-density and colour-compensation dual filter system used in our high-end cameras.

“The colour-compensation filter wheel includes a free space to mount any desired effect filter or an additional optical low-pass filter, further reducing aliasing effects in difficult shooting conditions, and is especially helpful when shooting LED walls.” 

Included in the HDK-X500 is a 16-axis colour corrector for precise scene matching or the creation of colour-related effects. Chroma and hue levels can be individually adjusted within the 16-axes both during normal programme production and to allow colour matching with other cameras. This high-level correction can be processed in real time. View the HDK-X500 HD portable camera system at booth 12.A31 during IBC2024, which is taking place at the Amsterdam RAI Convention Centre from September 13-16.
