Booth C4309 Hitachi Kokusai Electric America is debuting the Z-HD5500 HDTV studio and field production camera. Featuring the company’s latest advances in CMOS imaging technology, the Z-HD5500 cost-effectively addresses the challenges of shooting in studios and venues with low-cost or varying-frequency LED lighting. The Z-HD5500’s new CMOS imagers adapt easily to a range of LED lighting conditions for high-performance video capture in TV studios, houses of worship, theaters, arenas and other facilities where such lights or large LED displays are used.

Paired with Hitachi Kokusai’s advanced digital signal processing and exclusive low-noise circuit technology, the sensors deliver visual quality with sensitivity, color fidelity and an outstanding 62 dB signal-to-noise ratio.

The Z-HD5500 offers High Dynamic Range (HDR) capabilities, enabling increased contrast, richer colors and enhanced lighting reproduction. The Z-HD5500 supports HLG (Hybrid Log-Gamma) and HPQ HDR specifications and provides a choice of connectivity, with optional support for both SMPTE fiber and triax infrastructures.
