IBC 2015: Ikegami will demonstrate a new compact HD camera designed for use on remotely controlled pan and tilt heads at IBC in Amsterdam.
The HDL-57 is suited to applications such as parliamentary television or robotic studios and can be used where a compact camera is required for intercutting with the output from full-size studio cameras.
The HDL-57 can be operated remotely or via its rear control panel.
The camera head and controller are housed in a single rectangular unit measuring 90 x 103 x 180 mm and weighing 1.5 kg.
It houses three 2.5 megapixel 2/3 inch CMOS sensors and shoots 1080/59.94i, 1080/50i, 720/59.94p, 720/50p and 1080/23.98p footage. There is also an option for 1080/23.98p output.
The HDL-57 delivers two HD-SDI outputs and has a reference signal input accepting tri-level HD sync.
