TOP-END 4K STUDIO CAMERA SYSTEM WITH GLOBAL SHUTTER & HIGH FRAME RATE OPERATION
The UHK-X700 is Ikegami's latest addition to its UNICAM XE 4K HDR system camera series. It incorporates three newly developed 2/3-inch CMOS 4K sensors with Global Shutter to eliminate rolling shutter distortion and flash-banding artefacts. The camera is equipped with Ikegami's self designed AXII video processor which enables direct 4K video output from the camera head as well as High Frame Rate capture and processing for applications such as capturing fast motion in sport or stage events. An optional SE-U430 system expander accommodates large studio or OB lenses.

2/3" 3 CMOS 4K GLOBAL SHUTTER SENSOR
A 3-CMOS optical system using newly developed 2/3-inch CMOS sensors boasts an S/N of 62dB and a sensitivity of F11 in 4KP50.
The high dynamic range of the sensors produces high-quality images with excellent colour reproduction. The CMOS sensors incorporate a global shutter pixel architecture, enabling the camera to capture natural images even under challenging situations. Fast moving objects are free from geometric distortion and there are no flash bands when the camera is shooting strobe lights or flashes from still cameras.
HIGH FRAME RATE OPERATION
Together with the accompanying Base Station BSX-100 or Camera Control Unit CCU-X100, the UHK-X750 can capture and process High Frame Rate video at 2x speed in 4K and 2x/3x/4x/6x/8x speed in HD resolution as an option. There are two available upgrade stages fitting different budgets and required HFR speeds.
When the camera head is used in stand-alone operation, high frame rate shooting at up to 4x speed is possible in HD (To be released).
SIMULCAST 4K/HDR-HD/SDR & COLOUR SPACE CONVERSION
Together with the BSX-100 and CCU-X100, simultaneous output of 4K HDR and HD SDR video is possible by separate processing of EOTF, Colour Space and Edge Detailing as a standard feature.
Furthermore three separate processing channels enable output of 2160P, 1080P and 1080i video at the same time.
NO COLOUR ALIASING
Three-chip optical technology drastically reduces colour aliasing which is always an issue with single-chip cameras.
With the optional Low-Pass-Filter aliasing effects can be reduced even more which is especially helpful when shooting LED walls.
DIRECT 4K OUTPUT
With a newly integrated video process the UHK-X700 can output 4K video directly from the camera head via 12G-SDI or 3G-SDI Quad Link.
4K 12G-SDI VIDEO TRUNK & Ethernet Trunk
Utilizing wide transmission bandwidth between the UHK-X700 and the BSX-100/CCU-X100, auxiliary 4K image transmission is available via a video trunk line beside the main 4K image as an option. External 4K image sources from a POV or other camera which does not have a base station can be transmitted without additional cable installation.
An Ethernet data trunk line between camera and base station/CCU supports 1Gbps data transmission for external equipment (e.g. for another camera) as a standard feature.
While using supporting lenses, operators can conveniently adjust the backfocus remotely from the OCP-300 control panel.
16-AXIS COLOUR CORRECTOR AND FOCUS ASSIST
QUICK EZ FOCUS ASSIST FUNCTION
Finding the correct focus can be especially difficult while working with 4K cameras.
Ikegami's Quick EZ Focus Assist function is a newly incorporated useful tool, providing very distinct enhancements to the viewfinder signal, enabling the camera operator to make critical focus adjustments. The contour extracted from the 4K image is displayed in the viewfinder to assist precise focusing. The area size, area color, edge color, and display time on the viewfinder are adjustable in the camera menu.
Next to Quad 3G-SDI also 12G-SDI, Gigabit Ethernet Data Trunk line and Media-Over-IP Interfaces are available. The companion Ikegami BSX-100 Base Station and CCU-X100 Control Unit enable easy migration from HD to 4K live production through simulcast operation.

WIDE COLOUR SPACE AND HDR
The UHK-X700 provides an HLG (Hybrid Log Gamma) mode conforming to ITU-R BT.2100 which is an international standard for HDR. It is now possible to expand the range represented from dark to bright, providing superb bright pictures with High Dynamic Range. HLG and various other kinds of gamma curves can be flexibly set by users.
BT.2020 wide colour space and BT. 709 colour space are supported in 4K and HD modes.
Different Gamma curves and color spaces can be set separately for various outputs of the BSX-100 and CCU-X100.
COMPACT, LIGHTWEIGHT AND USER FRIENDLY
The compact body, low weight of 5 kg and low center of gravity create the perfect balance together with the adjustable shoulder pad while shooting on the shoulder. Additionally, the viewfinder can be adjusted in three axis. The BSX-100 weighs only 7 kg and fits easily into OB van infrastructure with 3RU height and half-rack width.
SE-U430 SYSTEM EXPANDER
Enables the use of a studio viewfinder and large studio lens with digital interface. Newly designed for UNICAM XE series with improved lens swap mechanism.
Two viewfinder models are available for the UHK-X700. The digital interface allows access to the camera menu from the viewfinder (VFL201D, VFL701D).
