Hitachi Introducing ‘Z-HD6000’ Studio Camera

Features are integrated into the Z-HD6000

Hitachi Kokusai Electric America, a global electronics company, plans in April to introduce the Z-HD6000 CMOS HDTV studio camera that features a CMOS camera processor.
Outfitted with a 2.6 million pixel, 2/3-inch, 1920×1080 raster MOS RGB sensor, the Z-HD6000 camera improves operations 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, Hitachi says.
“We’ve designed the Z-HD6000 camera with integrated features that enhance the studio production workflow, while saving our customers money,” said Sean Moran, Hitachi’s vice president of the Sales, Broadcast & Professional Division. “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,” he said.
The Z-HD6000 has built-in access to multiple communication channels, and it provides 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” that is viewable in the talent prompter, Hitachi says.
The Z-HD6000 also offers a “no vertical smear” feature, F12 standard sensitivity with over 60 dB of signal-to-noise ratio and a real-time lens aberration correction function, according to the company. In addition, the Z-HD6000 offers all the features 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, the firm says.
