Newly Developed FPGA
Using mass memory type FPGA, 40/45nm design rule, the video signals are digitized with 16-bit A/D conversion to achieve the highest possible picture quality.
Video processing technology to maximize the benefit of 16-bits
This camera is designed from the start based on 16-bit A/D and matching 16-bit DSP to maximize the benefits of high bit quantization.
Especially for the dark areas of the picture, the higher gradation for gamma and other circuits improves the reproduction, providing for more natural color in the shadow areas of the picture.
Newly developed 2.3 Mega pixel progressive sensors
New 2/3-inch 2.3 Mega pixel 1080 progressive CCDs are employed to support not only the usual 1080i 59.94/50Hz 4:2:2 1.5G formats, but also 3G formats such as 1080p 59.94/50Hz 4:2:2 and 1080i 59.94/50Hz 4:4:4.(Option)
Furthermore, 1080i(119.88/100Hz), 1080p(29.97/25Hz), 720p(59.94/50/Hz/119.88/100Hz) are available as an option.
The HDK-97AP adds support for the 1080p(23.98Hz) format.
S/N ratio of 62dB (Typical)
Taking full advantage of its excellent sensors and video circuits, the HDK-97A offers superb high quality, natural looking pictures with 1000 TV lines of horizontal resolution, F10 sensitivity, and 62dB S/N ratio in HDTV (1080i59.94).
HD SDI Trunk (Option)
When the camera is operating in a conventional 1.5G format, a second 1.5G video from an external source can be transmitted to the CCU as a video trunk channel. For POV or 3D applications this will reduce the cables which need to be run.
Docking style camera body
With a docking style camera body, either an FA (Fiber Adaptor) or TA (Triax Adaptor) can be mounted depending on the use.
Using a down converter and up converter incorporated in the CCU as standard, both HDTV and SDTV signals are provided simultaneously from the CCU. And the CCU offers not only the usual 1080i 59.94/50Hz 4:2:2 1.5G signal outputs, but also 3G outputs like 1080p 59.94/50Hz 4:2:2 and 1080i 59.94/50Hz 4:4:4. (Option)
