Additional features include waveform monitor and vectorscope display (LCD only), photo file conversion (capable of 4K resolution photo extraction), time stamp, and continuous repeat playback of one or multiple clips (suitable for use in presentations). It operates on battery or DC12V power (AC power supply included).

The ultra-compact UCK20 camera head is equipped with a wide-angle 20x zoom lens that covers a range from 29.5 mm wide-angle to 612 mm close-ups (35mm equivalent). A 16-axis independent colour correction function allows fine colour adjustment, and an optical ND filter can be manually switched (OFF, 1/4, 1/16, 1/64). The UCK20 is equipped with an Infrared (IR) Shooting mode, and a 5-axis hybrid image stabilizer that makes the camera highly effective for shooting action scenes.

Camera control (Zoom, Focus, Iris) from an IP controller is supported through a LAN terminal on the UMR20, with various camera adjustments also possible from a PC or tablet. Camera control with fingertip operation is supported through the remote terminal on the recorder. The UCK20 includes a built-in microphone (ON/OFF switchable), and a Scan Reverse mode (horizontal/vertical inversion) for shooting with a ceiling-mounted camera head.
