WOODBURY, NEW YORK, May 21, 2008 – Hitachi Kokusai Electric America, Ltd. will be on hand at InfoComm 2008 (Booth #C914) to show two high-performance HDTV cameras—from Hitachi’s broad portfolio of products—that serve a wide range of professional A/V applications. InfoComm is being held from June 14-18, 2008 at the Las Vegas Convention Center. The first is the Hitachi SK-HD1000 HDTV studio and field production camera which has been significantly upgraded in features and performance since its introduction last year. The SK-HD1000 offers an impressive 60dB HDTV signal-to-noise ratio at F10.0 and 1100 horizontal TV lines of resolution in a unique two-piece camera platform for maximum configuration flexibility. The SK-HD1000 is based upon next-generation, high dynamic range RGB 2/3-inch progressive CCDs each with 2.2 million pixels, 14-bit A to D converters, and Hitachi’s new digital circuits enabling exceptional depth of modulation, tonal reproduction and highlight handling characteristics. Also, the new Camera Control Unit (CCU) model CU-HD1000 offers exceptional flexibility by providing users with a choice of fiber or digital triax/coax transmission but also an optional cross-converter to make 720p out of 1080i with embedded professional quality digital audio in the HD-SDI outputs. Also on display will be the HV-HD30 HDTV color camera featuring advancements in digital signal processing and CMOS imaging sensors for exceptional picture quality and electronic stability at an attractive price point. The HV-HD30 employs three HDTV, 1/3-inch format, 1.3-megapixel CMOS sensors, and provides both 1080i and 720p HDTV digital signals that are SMPTE292M-compliant up to 1.5 Gbps. The HV-HD30 can serve as a low-cost HDTV studio sub-camera, as well as high-resolution camera for teleconferencing, point-of-view, observation and monitoring, medical applications, and industrial imaging, such as factory automation. An extremely lightweight and compact camera, the HV-HD30 can also be configured for remote control operation. Both the Hitachi SK-HD1000 and the HV-HD30 are available now.
