April 2022 NAB Show preview: Ikegami sets focus on HFR, IP and UHD HDR

UHD HDR, HFR and IP are set to take centre stage on the Ikegami exhibit (C-4426) at the NAB Show in Las Vegas.

Product highlights at the show, which takes place between April 23rd to April 27th, will include the UHK-X700 and UHL-F4000 cameras, BSX-100 UHD base station and ULE-217-HDR HD monitor.

“UHD HDR has become the global industry standard for broadcast feature production as it allows content creators to maximize the commercial lifetime of their work,” comments Ikegami Electronics president Toshi Mitsuoka.

“UHD HDR is especially useful for capturing the extremes of light intensity which video producers need to accommodate during sports and stage events.

“Our flagship camera, the UHK-X700 supports high frame-rate capture for slow-motion and can be pedestal or tripod mounted, or operated over the shoulder.

“We will also be demonstrating the highly versatile UHL-F4000 which is ideal for UHD HDR robotics in a studio environment, on location or airborne.

“Also making its first NAB Show appearance will be the BSX-100 multi-format base station. This simplifies the transition from SDI to IP and SDR to HDR. It also supports combined HD and UHD operation.

“On the monitoring side, we will be showing our cost-efficient ULE-217-HDR 21.5 inch SDR/HDR switchable broadcast monitor.”
