Ikegami - Innovations
in the Middle East
A year can be a long time in broadcast in some ways,
and no time at all in others, writes Michael L├Ątzsch,
Divisional Manager Broadcast and Pro Video....

I

ncredibly, it is just a year since our
Dubai office was inaugurated - in
the same year that we celebrated
Ikegami's 70th anniversary -- and
having a dedicated regional presence
for the Middle East has proved to be
very popular and successful.
As we all know, technology does not
stand still in this sector. Ikegami prides
itself on developing and supporting
the latest innovations that will bring
benefits to our customers, such as
UHD and HDR, while also remembering
that many of these customers will
take time to invest in and adopt new
technologies; they must therefore be
supported with practical updates for
their existing workflows.
At this year's CABSAT we have a
mix of these technologies. We're
pleased to present the UHK-430, a 4K

portable camera system employing
three newly-developed 4K-native 2/3
inch CMOS sensors which provide
full 3840x2160 ultra-high definition
resolution, plus the depth of field
required for studio and outdoor
production. The camera is equipped
with a B4 bayonet mount compatible
with 2/3 inch HD lenses. An optional
SE-U430 expander accommodates
large studio or OB lenses.

Ikegami is also showing the latest
edition to its Unicam HD camera
series, the HDK-73, offering the
HDR compatibility that is now so
important to the market. The camera,
which features F13 (1080i50) high
sensitivity 2/3-inch CMOS sensors with
exceptional picture quality
in either 1080i or 720p,
has a HLG hybrid log
gamma for HDR
picture origination.

Ikegami's UHK430

This feature means it is now possible to
shoot a scene with HDR without losing
gradation in the highlights.
The HDL-45E is a 3CCD multi-purpose
HDTV Camera achieving superb picture
quality, high stability and excellent
reliability with the incorporation
of Ikegami's cutting edge digital
technology. With its compact onepiece form, this camera is ideal for
applications such as a weather camera,
news flash camera or POV camera.
The camera provides superior pictures
with the newly developed 2/3 inch 2.3
Megapixel AIT CCD, digital processing
LSI (ASIC) and the latest 14-bit A/D
Converters.
As well as camera innovations,
technology is moving on in monitors.
Ikegami's 4K HQLM-3120W monitor
is equipped with two channels of
12G-SDI input as standard for efficient
configuration with 4K equipment such
as cameras and switchers.
In addition, two new monitors in
Ikegami's HD 60 series - the HLM1760WR and the HLM-960WR which
were launched at IBC 2017 - will also
be available to view.
We're excited to share our new
technologies, greet our existing
customers, and make new friends at
the show.

Boosting Efficiency in Post
One of the top threads at the show is that broadcast and post-production infrastructure
will use software applications running on standard hardware, writes
Daniel Hinton, Broadcast and Communications Regional Manager...

N

ew developments, such as SMPTE
ST2110 standards, mean you can
confidently stream content in realtime between devices.
That is great for live production and
transmission. But post-production
needs random access to a large
amount of content for editing, and
bandwidth limitations mean it is
impractical to deliver multiple realtime streams over a network.
Post relies on all the content being
moved onto the edit or graphics
workstation. In the traditional posthouse model, the computer sits in the
suite, so there is a lot of downtime in
an expensive room.
Another hot topic at CABSAT will be
Ultra HD - 4K resolution - a fourfold
increase in file sizes - and with HDR -
add another 25%. Even bigger files to
transfer, so even more downtime.
The solution is to change the
fundamental
design
concept.
Instead of allocating a computer to

a room, allocate a computer to a
job. Processors and disk drives with
post-production performance are
inexpensive today, so have multiple
devices, racked in the machine room,
and load them up with the jobs as they
arrive.
You simply connect the edit controls
and display - KVM - from each room
to each computer, as required.
Changeovers between jobs can be
instantaneous by simply switching
from one computer to another. Jobs
can move between rooms - perhaps
between smaller rooms and a larger
one for client sessions - as work
demands.
This demands a KVM switch capable
of broadcast quality work. The most
important requirement is that the
video display delivers uncompromised
image quality. The editor will need
to be confident that there are no
technical issues in the clips, so picture
quality is vital.

The other requirement is that editors
are used to pressing a button and
something happening in response.
There needs to be little or no delay
between the control surfaces in the
edit suite and the computer in the
machine room.
Argosy offers products from ATEN,
Thinklogical, and other manufacturers,
for the simple reason that they meet
the real, practical requirements. It
provides visually lossless 4K Ultra

KVM provides a
fundamental workflow restructuring

HD, and does it with zero latency. It
achieves this using an IP connection
over existing copper Ethernet cabling,
so there is no need to install a new
fibre network.
KVM over IP makes separating
hardware from edit suites a simple
and practical proposition. That, in
turn, brings an enormous boost to
productivity.
