Main Products To Be Exhibited

- Broadcasting 4K Ultra-HDTV cameras SK-UHD4000
SK-UHD4000 is a broadcast 4K Ultra-HDTV camera that was put on the market last year and has been delivered to many customers. 2/3-inch B4 mount lenses used for conventional HD broadcasting cameras can be applied to the SK-UHD4000 without special conversion adapters, which allows lenses to be used efficiently and effectively.

In addition, SK-UHD4000 provides excellent cost performance and enables capturing of images in 4K by following the operability of existing broadcasting cameras.

SK-UHD4000 is used for world-class sport and concert events.

- Triple-speed HDTV slow motion camera SK-HD1500
SK-HD1500 is a slow motion HDTV camera that provides triple speed, high resolution, and high quality. SK-HD1500 is used to capture images for sport and event broadcasting utilizing various ways to visually express events. By using the SK-HD1500 with a multi-format HDTV camera of the SK-HD1200 series, you can achieve excellent effects in operations such as when using relay vehicles.

- HDTV camera SK-HD1300 with MOS sensor
SK-HD1300 is equipped with the latest MOS sensor to achieve high sensitivity and an excellent signal-to-noise ratio. Using this camera together with existing peripherals manufactured by Hitachi Kokusai such as camera control units allows multi-format output in 1080i and 1080p formats. SK-HD1300 is a multi-format camera that has achieved significant improvements in operability including correction functionality that automatically corrects lateral chromatic aberration.

- HDTV small box cameras DK-Z50 and DK-H100, etc.
DK-Z50 and DK-H100 are HDTV box cameras that have 2/3-inch CCDs, which achieve high-resolution, high-quality, and stable image capturing. Capturing of high-resolution images is possible in various settings, such as studios and video conferences.

- Digital microwave link FR-Z100
FR-Z100 is a digital microwave link. Based on our expertise in operation of analog microwave link systems, we provide a liquid crystal display to significantly improve convenience and reliability in operations.

FR-Z100 is employed in South-East Asian countries as well as in Japan, and is used for image and voice transmission in sport and event broadcasting.
At BCA2015, we will be exhibiting the FR-Z100 mounted on a relay vehicle system.

- Digital transmitters
Many countries are planning migration to digital terrestrial broadcasting. In March 2015, Hitachi Kokusai Electric Group developed the E-Compact series of digital transmitters which support various methods of digital terrestrial broadcasting. At BCA2015, we will be exhibiting the product lineup of the E-Compact series.

Ultra-high efficiency Doherty-type* amplifiers allow the E-Compact series to achieve output of 580 W to 700 W, and improve power efficiency. This provides excellent transmission characteristics.

In addition, enhanced control functionality of ampifiers allows easy setup and simple configuration. We provide digital transmitters optimal for the usage.

An air-cooling system is employed for the E-Compact series, which allows easy installation and achieves excellent maintainability. Our product lineup supports Japanese (ISDB-T standard), European (DVB-T2 standard), and US (ATSC standard) systems.

Doherty type: An amplifier configuration that is a combination of an always-running amplifier and an amplifier used for large amplitude operations. This combination reduces power consumption.

- Outside Broadcasting Van System
As a new business expansion, we will exhibit an outside broadcasting van system * that includes a vehicle as well as broadcasting camera systems.

For BCA2015, we will exhibit a locally- procured relay vehicle to ensure compliance with regulations on vehicles in each country. The vehicle has a box-type cargo space that can be loaded on site.

Outside broadcasting van systems can be set up with small to large-scale system configurations according to user needs.

Outside broadcasting van systems are developed and manufacturedby Turkish's maker & system integrator of broadcast equipment, BCS Technology Broadcasting and Communication Systems Industry and Trade Inc., and are sold by Hitachi Kokusai Electric Inc.
