DK-H200 multi-format, compact, HDTV box camera, Hitachi

Progressive studio cameras now in compact box format

Hitachi announces the immediate availability of the DK-H200 multi-format, compact, HDTV box camera. The new model delivers high-performance, progressive image acquisition for a wide range of broadcast and professional applications.

Hitachi's first box camera to feature native, full frame rate 1080p acquisition, the new DK-H200 provides the feature-rich functionality of the company's SK-series studio and field cameras, all in a form factor ideal for point-of-view and remote observation applications. The DK-H200 will be introduced at the upcoming 2016 NAB Show, taking place April 16-21 in Las Vegas.Hitachi Kokusai Electric America will exhibit in booth C4309.

The DK-H200's new 2.6 million pixel, 2/3-inch, progressive MOS sensors deliver sharp, clear images. Hitachi promises advanced sensors, with their high signal processing technology and the camera’s progressive signal flow to provide superior picture quality with low noise, faithful color reproduction and high dynamic range. The camera's 60dB signal-to-noise ratio enables clear images with minimal noise even at high gain, and is complemented by outstanding standard sensitivity of F12 at 59.94Hz and F13 at 50Hz.

The flexible, multi-format DK-H200 offers selectable 1080p, 1080i and 720p outputs at 60Hz, 59.94Hz or 50Hz. The camera’s ability to simultaneously deliver a different format on each of the camera's dual, 3Gbps-capable HD-SDI outputs eliminates the need for external converters in mixed-format applications, saving both cost and equipment footprint. Optional single-mode fiber interconnectivity is also available, enabling video transmission from the camera over long distances. 

The DK-H200’s compact size and light 1.3kg weight are ideal for robotic camera applications, enabling the use of less-expensive robotics systems. Providing versatility for remote acquisition, the DK-H200’s direct TCP/IP networking enables the camera to be controlled from within a studio, across a campus or around the world through a TCP/IP network or the internet. Fully automatic features including the built-in Automatic Exposure System (AES), Automatic Gain Control (AGC), automatic iris, and Full-time Automatic White Balance (FAW) further bolster unmanned operation. This is achieved by maintaining a consistent video level and correcting for color temperature variations even under rapidly changing lighting conditions.

The DK-H200 also includes other popular image adjustment and user-friendly features from Hitachi’s SK Series cameras, including advanced color correction, skin tone detail processing, Ultra-Gamma response, focus assist, recallable scene and lens files, a motorized filter wheel and more. (1/16)
