AK-HC5000
Key Features

HD system camera channel equipped with a newly-developed 3MOS sensor

The combination of larger pixels and optical expansion makes efficient use of incident light to achieve high sensitivity (F12@50p) and low noise (S/N 60dB)

High-speed scanning from the MOS sensor supports features including focus assist, flash-band compensation and skew reduction

Built-in optical conversion lens allows standard 2/3-type B4 mount lenses to be used

IP streaming and IP control is supported

The AK-HC5000 HD Broadcast Studio Camera is equipped with newly developed 2/3-type MOS sensors that produce high sensitivity and an excellent S/N ratio. While including functions appreciated in the conventional model such as DRS and CineGamma, the AK-HC5000 Series adds new features such as focus assist, flash band compensation, and skew reduction which is realized through high-speed readout from the MOS sensors. There are additional functions to improve shooting experience; including enhanced shock less gain (-3 dB to 36 dB), a user gamma function, black gamma correction according to the pedestal setting, multi-step DNR and easy matrix adjustment.

The AK-HC5000 delivers excellent image quality and operability. When used with the AK-UCU500 Camera Control Unit, it is capable of 1080/60p, 240p image output and high-image-quality uncompressed long-distance transmission. Also available to use alongside this product is the AK-HRP1000/HRP1005 Remote Operation Panel, 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 (9-inches) LCD color view finder has also been newly developed and equipped with a large display and diverse functions such as focus assist. Overall, this system offers superior cost performance with respect to both operability and ease of use.
