Hitachi Kokusai Electric Europe GmbH



Professional 4K television production camera

Hitachi’s next-generation 4K Ultra HD broadcast and live production camera system incorporates three 2/3”, global shutter 9MPixel CMOS image sensors. Native 4K sensors enables pristine capture of 3840x2160 UHD video. Expanded spectral range with a new prism design and high-performance sensors enables full-range BT.2020 Wide Color Gamut.

Dual 4K and HDTV workflow supports separate controls for tree type High Dynamic Range (HDR) and standard dynamic range (SDR), maximizing production versatility and efficiency. The SK-UHD7000 is ideal for a wide range of applications – from broadcasters archiving their productions, to live production companies striving to offer the utmost quality to their clients, to houses of worship future-proofing their facilities with life-like video.

Camera Control Units



The CU-UHD7000 CCU connects via full-bandwidth, uncompressed, native 4K signals via SMPTE 311M hybrid fiber optic cable over distances up to 2KM. 12G-SDI, single-link connectivity also provides 4K output directly from the camera head. Integrated HD down-conversion offers 1080p, 1080i, or 720p output for multi-format productions. Embedded audio is available on all SDI outputs and as listen-channels on the intercom. A trunk data interface supports video transport and control of TCP/IP-capable devices. The new camera also retains compatibility with existing Hitachi control panels and third-party control systems.

With Optional ST-2110 Interface board with software defined ST-2110 processing functions of A/V over IP up to 12G-SDI Uncompressed Video Standards available for live production as well as remote production. With optional JPEG-XS software it can be switch to the (compressed) ST2110-22 JPEG-XS application on the fly when needed. The board has 2 SFP 25G/10G slots fully redundant ST2022-7 and support NMOS Control and PTP.
