Panasonic 4K Studio Handy Camera
With the newly developed large-format 4K sensor, this camera produces highly expressive 4K video with rich gradation in addition to supporting simultaneous HD/SD.
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 color 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. The AK-HVF100 9-inches (230 mm) LCD color view finder has also been newly developed equipped with a large display and diverse functions such as focus assist. Overall, this system offers superior cost performance with respect to both operability and ease of use.
