Dongwha AV (www.dhav.co.kr) took part in the 25th Korea International Broadcasting, Audio & Lighting Equipment Show (KOBA 2015), which ran May 19-22 at COEX. It presented the Ikegami Unicam HD camera series, which supports 8K, 4Km and full HD.
The company showed the SHK-810, a new 8K super-resolution camera prototype. This model has a 3.3-megapixel, 35mm CMOS sensor and its resolution is 4000TVL.
It has adopted a color filter that uses dual green SHV signals and PL lens mount. The mount can be used with 8K, 4K, and cine lenses. The focus can be easily adjusted.
The Ikegami ARRI Unicam HD camera achieved 4K resolution via the film-tone broadcasting HD camera. This model, which Ikegami and ARRI co-produced, was combined with super-resolution technology. Thus, a 4K converter board can change a 2K signal into 4K resolution and transmit it.
It is compatible with the Unicam HD camera system by using a plug-in board for the BS-98 Base Station. It improves the resolution of the 2K signal through a re-mastering mode, which can be achieved by adopting the super-resolution engine. In addition, Dongwha AV showcased the HDK-970A/970AP series, 16-bit full-digital 3G HDTV camera systems, and the HDK-97A/97AP, a 3G HDTV portable camera system.
This particular system supports high-band 3G HDTV-SDI video outputs and is equipped with a 4K upscale processor, a custom gamma, and 16-bit full-digital specification. It also supports various formats, such as a docking-style camera body, 1080p, 1080i, and 720p.
KOBA began in 1991 for the development of Korea’s broadcasting culture and video, audio, and lighting industries. This year, a total of 932 companies from 32 countries participated to present the next-gen broadcasting trend, of which 189 were Korean companies.
Over a hundred sessions under the event name “The International Broadcasting Technology Conference” were held at COEX Conference Center, on major topics such as 4K, UHD, smart technology, digital radio, and broadcasting technology and policies.
