Exhibitor News: Hitachi Kokusai

Booth C4309  Hitachi Kokusai is demonstrating its implementation of the SMPTE ST 2110 suite of standards across its range of MOS and CCD broadcast cameras, showing SDI-delivered signals alongside IP-based video transport from the same source.

A dedicated HDR demonstration area at the company’s booth will highlight HDR and SDR side by side on precision reference monitors, and additional demos will showcase how HDR-enhanced HDTV broadcasts will look when received at consumers’ homes.

A new optional firmware update for the Hitachi SK-UHD4000 4K UHD camera system enhances and simplifies simultaneous HDR and SDR production, enabling separate video shading adjustments for HDR and SDR outputs while allowing users to select from multiple HDR profiles alongside SDR simultaneously with the same camera. New optional 12 Gbps SDI output capabilities for the accompanying CU-HD4000 CCU have also been added to its existing quad-link SDI interface.
