The SK-HD1800 is applicable for mobile and event-based productions

The SK-HD1800 HDTV studio and field production camera from Hitachi Kokusai combines the advanced CMOS imaging technology found in the manufacturer’s Z-HD5500 camera with a motorised, four-position filter wheel for remote operation. This makes the SK-HD1800 applicable to mobile and event-based productions and suitable for events with challenging LED lighting and displays.

‘The use of LED lighting and displays in live production environments continues to expand rapidly, and our Z-HD5500 camera has proven extremely popular for its ability to capture high-quality, rock-solid video in these often-challenging settings,’ said John J Humphrey from Hitachi Kokusai Electric America. ‘At the same time, features like remotely operated, motorised filter wheel support have made our SK series of cameras a preferred choice for remote and mobile productions. The new SK-HD1800 offers customers the best of both worlds, and combines with the CU-HD1300 family of CCUs to flexibly support evolving industry trends including HDR, 4K and IP-based workflows.’

The SK-HD1800’s CMOS imagers are designed to adapt to changing LED lighting conditions. The advanced 1080p sensors work with Hitachi Kokusai’s digital signal processing and low-noise circuit technologies for visual sensitivity, colour fidelity and a 62dB signal-to-noise ratio.
