Ikegami Announces UHK-X700 2/3-inch 4K-Native Global Shutter 3-CMOS Sensor UNICAM System Camera

Neuss, Germany, February 25th, 2021 - Ikegami announces a major addition to its UNICAM XE 4K system camera series. 

The UHK-X700 incorporates three newly developed 2/3-inch CMOS 4K sensors with global shutters to eliminate rolling shutter distortion and flash-banding artefacts. 

"Designed for broadcast-quality video production and online streaming applications, the UHK-X700 looks set to become the flagship of the UNICAM series," comments Michael Lätzsch, Broadcast & Professional Video Division Manager at Ikegami Electronics (Europe). "It provides the high signal quality, versatile connectivity and robust build that are essential in today's multi-resolution media world. That includes full support for high dynamic range imagery with HLG or standard dynamic range, as well as the possibility to independently choose between BT.2020 and BT.709 colour spaces. High frame-rate shooting at up to 2x speed in 4K or up to 8x speed in HD via the base station is possible as an option, for applications such as capturing fast motion in sport or stage events."

Core of the UHK-X700 electronics is an ASIC chip which encapsulates a wide range of high-grade video processing functions into ultra-compact component dimensions. When combined with the Ikegami BSX-100 base station, the camera optionally supports simultaneous output in 4K/HD video formats, including mixed sources. 4K video is available as a 12G-SDI feed directly from the camera head, allowing the UHK-X700 to be integrated into a wireless system. 

Measuring 340 x 243 x 149 mm and weighing 5 kg, the UHK-X700 comes with a B4 lens mount and has an optical sensitivity of F11 when operating at 4K/50p. The camera is designed for use at -20 to +45 °C operating temperature and 30% to 90% non-condensing humidity.  

The UHK-X700 camera is uniformly balanced and has a low centre of gravity to ensure easy operation on a pedestal, tripod or shoulder. Peripheral options include the OCP-300 control panel and SE-U430 system expander. Ikegami also offers a choice of three types of viewfinder for this model: VFL201D 2-inch LCD, VFL701D 7-inch full HD LCD, VFE741D 7.4-inch OLED. 

The UHK-X700 is scheduled for delivery from Q2 2021.
