Ikegami has integrated eight of its UHK-430 camera systems at Thai Parliament Television (TPTV), the national assembly radio and television broadcasting station of Thailand. The cameras are now in full operation at the recently completed Sappaya-Sapasathan Parliament House in Bangkok, allowing 4K-broadcast quality coverage of legislative proceedings.
To prepare for future expansion, 4K and IP connectivity were crucial requirements for TPTV when choosing the cameras. Ikegami UHK-430 cameras incorporate three 4K native sensors, which allow them to capture content at very high quality. In addition to its 4K performance, the CCU-430 camera control unit has an IP interface that supports IP network connection.
Ikegami’s UHK-430 is a 4K-native camera system with simultaneous HDR (High Dynamic Range)/SDR (Standard Dynamic Range) processing. Its three 2/3-inch CMOS sensors provide full 3840 x 2160 UHD resolution plus the depth of field needed for studio and outdoor production. The camera is also equipped with a B4 bayonet mount compatible with 2/3-inch broadcast lenses.
An integrated Ikegami AXII processor enables the UHK-430 to deliver 40 Gbps un-compressed full bandwidth video transmission. The AXII also supports a wide range of features including 16-axis colour correction and focus-assist for 4K and HD video modes.
“All these features were evaluated by TPTV and we believe they were the triggers of their decision,” said Yasunori Kanno, President of Ikegami Electronics Asia Pacific.
