Hitachi to Intro DK-H31S HD Camera at NAB 2006Rugged and Versatile New Camera Delivers Unparalleled 1080i or 720p Capabilities (January 30, 2006)
Recognizing that professionals dont want to trade durability for image quality, Hitachi Kokusai Electric America, Ltd. debuts a compact, full HDTV camera built for such demanding environments as shooting from the air, for sports production, within robotic systems, and for high-end surveillance applications. To be introduced at NAB 2006 (Booth C3926), the DK-H31S HDTV camera delivers an unparalleled image without sacrificing any ruggedness.
The two-piece DK-H31S provides full HDTV resolution in either 1080i or 720p formats due to the use of 2/3-inch CCDs.
?This new two-piece HDTV camera is designed to address the growing demand for versatile, compact HDTV cameras for many demanding applications, said Emilio Aleman, Product Manager, Broadcast & Professional, Hitachi Kokusai Electric America, Ltd. ?The camera is especially rugged and withstands harsh use such as encountered in broadcast sports and aircraft applications. No compromises have been accepted in picture quality to achieve HDTV performance. Users will benefit from its small compact camera head design and CCU. Its a new breed of camera unlike others on the market.
Other ideal applications for the DK-H31S include such things as military vision sub-assemblies and high-end industrial vision systems where the extra space provided by the small head is typically used for increased magnification optics (larger lens) inside robotic assemblies.
The DK-H31S HDTV Camera will be available in the fourth quarter of 2006. Pricing will be announced during the show by Hitachi sales representatives.
Hitachi Denshi, Ltd. designs, manufacturers and markets video cameras, digital transmission and recording for the broadcast television, cable, video production, and industrial vision markets.
