The AK-UC4000 studio camera is yet another Panasonic innovation in broadcast technology. Users can operate the camera in both 4K and HD modes. In HD mode the AK-UC4000 produces HD images with high sensitivity and low noise. In addition to the functions appreciated in previous studio camera series such as DRS and CineGamma, the AK-UC4000 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 shock less 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-UC4000 Series achieves excellent image quality and operability.
When paired with the AK-UCU600 Camera Control Unit, the UC4000 is capable of 4K image production and uncompressed long-distance transmission. The AK-HRP1000 and HRP1005 Remote Operation Panels are 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 a dedicated cable.
The AK-HVF100 230mm LCD color view finder is equipped with a large display and diverse functions. The focus assist functions include Focus Bar (indicates focus level), Focus-in-Red (uses color to indicate areas in focus), Expand (magnifies central portion), and Square (shows focus status of screen as a whole).
Overall, the AK-UC4000 and AW-UCU600 system offers superior cost performance with respect to both operability and ease of use.
AK-UCU600 - Camera Control Unit (CCU)
The CCU supports not only UHD and HD simultaneous output, but also enables high-speed output*1 up to 240p in HD mode to be performed simultaneously with standard (1x) output, while still having a compact size.
- Contains a dual UHD 12G-SDI system, and supports 3G-SDI quad link with quadrant or two-sample interleave.
- Optical fiber transmission of uncompressed video signals over a distance of approx. 2,000 m between camera and CCU*2.
- The compact, lightweight unit measures 2U in height and is rack-mountable.
- Supports IP streaming (100 Base-T).
- SD memory card can be used for saving user files and updating firmware versions.
- Dual uncompressed12G-SDI output.
- Supports TICO*3 over SDI (4K over 3G-SDI) output (4K signal can be transferred by a conventional 3G-SDI cable).
- Supports 1080p/i and 720p. In addition to standard output, high-speed output*1 at 2x, 3x or 4x can be selected according to the specifications of the server.
- Supports HDR/SDR simultaneous output and HDR BT.2020/BT.709 simultaneous output.
- 12G-SDI output and TICO*3 over SDI (4K over 3G-SDI) output are compatible with the AK-UC3000*4.
*1: When in HD Hi-Speed mode. Requires a firmware upgrade scheduled for release in the fall of 2018.
*2: When power is supplied from CCU.
*3: A codec developed by intoPIX. Stands for “Tiny Codec”.
*4: Requires a firmware upgrade scheduled for release in the fall of 2018.
