New Hitachi HDTV Camera Raises Bar on Picture Quality and Operational Efficiency

WOODBURY, New York – At NAB 2013, Hitachi Kokusai Electric America will introduce the Z-HD6000 CMOS HDTV studio camera, featuring a new 2/3-inch CMOS camera processor at the 2013 NAB show taking place April 6-11 in the Las Vegas Convention Center. Hitachi Kokusai Electric America will exhibit in booth C4309.

With its 2.6 million pixel, 2/3-inch, 1920×1080 raster MOS RGB sensors, the new Z-HD6000 raises the bar on picture quality. The new Z-HD6000 improves operational and cost efficiency within studio environments because its camera head provides extra power, communication channels, and other built-in features not typically found in cameras of its class.

“We’ve designed the Z-HD6000 camera with integrated features that enhance the studio production workflow, while saving our customers money,” said Sean Moran, vice president of Sales, Broadcast & Professional Division at Hitachi Kokusai Electric America. “By incorporating useful operational features in the camera system, we’ve eliminated the need for external hardware and extra wiring; making our system simpler to use, integrate, and deploy.”

Access to power

Having built-in access points for extra power means that studio personnel can run a teleprompter in addition to a floor or studio monitor from the camera head without the need for external power sources. Joe Tymecki, chief technical officer of Vermont Public Television, owns four Hitachi SK-HD1000 digital HDTV studio cameras, which also have this feature. “Because the camera head provides a high amount of power for the teleprompter, it made integrating our system a lot easier,” said Tymecki. “It saved us the expense of the extra integration time and of having to acquire external power.”

Better communication

With built-in access to multiple communication channels, the Z-HD6000 also provides: two IFB channels for listen only, two aux feeds that can send video to the operator, two video feeds that can go to talent and studio monitors, a second intercom channel for the floor manager or spotter, and a tally viewable in the talent prompter, among other features. “Occasionally we need a floor director or additional production talent who do not have access to wireless headsets,” Tymecki explained. “It’s nice when these extra production people can just plug into a camera head in the studio without impacting the camera operators.”

The Hitachi Z-HD6000 also offers new features and functions including: ‘no vertical smear’, F12 standard sensitivity with over 60dB of signal-to-noise ratio, and an RLAC real-time lens aberration correction function. However, the Z-HD6000 also retains all the popular features and functionality inherent in the existing Hitachi HDTV camera line, such as: fiber or digital triax cable operation, external auto-setup, advanced color correction, and improved skin tone detail.

At the 2013 NAB Show, Hitachi will also exhibit the new SK-HD2200 full body HD production camera, featuring new 2/3-inch, 1080/60p progressively scanned Ultra-Advanced UAIT-CCDs; as well as the Hitachi SK-HD1200 native 1080/60p studio/EFP camera; SK-HD1000 dockable studio/field camera; Z-HD5000 HDTV studio/field camera; and DK-Z50 multi-purpose HDTV camera.
