The AK-UC3000 Series 4K Studio Handy Camera is a 4K broadcast-use camera equipped with a newly developed MOS sensor.

When operated in HD format, it exhibits excellent operability with B4-mount HD lenses, achieving high sensitivity HD images (F10/2000 lx) with
low noise (S/N 60 dB). While including functions appreciated in the conventional model such as DRS and CineGamma, the AK-UC3000
Series adds new features such as focus assist, flash band compensation, and skew reduction which is realized through high-speed scan
from the MOS sensor.

There are additional functions to improve shooting experience including enhanced shockless gain (-6 dB to 36 dB),
a user gamma function, black gamma correction according to the pedestal setting, multi-step DNR and easy matrix adjustment.

AK-UC3000 Series achieves excellent image quality and operability. When used with AK-UCU500 Camera Control Unit, it is capable of 4K
(3840x2160/60p) image output, high-image-quality uncompressed long-distance transmission and the AK-HRP1000/HRP1005 Remote
Operation Panel equipped with a colour LCD to provide visibility of the display for smooth control.

The camera and camera control unit can be connected for approximately 2,000-meter long-distance transmission of video signals when power is supplied from the camera control unit. The remote operation panel and the camera can be connected using dedicated cable.
(In addition, there is a plan to support IP connection using LAN-cable.)

New launches at ISE 2020

Here's an overview of our vendors exhibiting at ISE 2020. Please call us on +44 (0)1457 851000 if you would like to book a stand tour with one of our manufacturers. BLACKMAGIC DESIGN HALL 3, STAND C140 The Video Assist 12G 5” and 7” monitor recorders are now shipping. The original HD versions were incredibly popular with AV technicians who wanted to verify SDI and HDMI feeds and check waveform levels. For production teams, their 4K HDR capture makes them a superb on-camera SD card recorder. The ATEM Mini is a very small, cost-effective 4 channel HDMI video switcher with streaming output. Great as a portable mixer or a signal switcher, it’s being adopted by everyone from conference producers to AV technicians looking for simple HDMI switching.
