Hitachi Releases New Ultra HD Live Production Camera System


The new SK-UHD7000 4K Ultra HD live production camera system from Hitachi Kokusai Electric America will make its first ProAV trade show appearance next month at InfoComm 2022. The company’s second-generation 4K camera system, the SK-UHD7000 will be demonstrated alongside other Hitachi camera innovations in booth N2175 from June 8 to 10 in Las Vegas.

The SK-UHD7000 incorporates three 2/3” CMOS image sensors with native 4K resolution to enable pristine capture of 3840×2160 UHD video. The sensors’ global shutter technology minimizes unwanted artifacts such as flickering and banding that could otherwise occur when capturing video in event venues, television production sets and worship environments with LED lighting and large LED displays.

The SK-UHD7000 also delivers extraordinary sensitivity and quality for Ultra HD production. The sensitivity of F11 at 59.94 frames per second enables high-quality acquisition in limited lighting, while a signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) of 62 dB provides ultra-quiet images. The camera’s new prism design enables superior color reproduction, while its dual 4K and HDTV workflow enables seamless multi-format productions and supports separate controls for High Dynamic Range (HDR) and standard dynamic range (SDR).
