The AK-HC3800 was designed to exceed the imaging capabilities of more expensive, rival productWeThink. With 2/3in 2.2-megapixel IT CCD sensors and a 38-bit DSP with 16-bit A/D converter, it is very well specified yet weighs only 8lbs. It takes many of the advantages of Panasonic's ENG camcorders, such as CAC (chromatic aberration compensation), DRS (dynamic range stretch) and comprehensive scene file setting to deliver far excellent, controlled pictures.
With this integrated package, the HC3800 is not just even more affordable. It is also very quick to install into a studio, with each element tested to work seamlessly and deliver a superb user experience.
The newly developed AK-HC3800 Studio Handy Camera is equipped with a high-sensitivity, high-quality 2/3-type 2.2-megapixel 3CCD and a new high-precision 16 bit A/D image processing circuit. By using the AK-HC3800 together with the AK-HCU200 Camera Control Unit and AK-HRP200G Remote Operation Panel an optical fiber transmission studio camera system can be configured at a low cost. The camera and camera control unit can be connected for long-distance transmission of video signals over approximately 1,000m when power is supplied from the camera control unit. The camera control unit and remote operation panel are connected by a dedicated cable. A LAN cable can also be used in the future for an IP connection of these units.
With Holdan's new studio camera solutions, each camera operator can concentrate on framing and focusing every shot. The production desk is empowered to communicate with each operator, match signals from every camera and co-ordinate incoming and return signals.
