Complete video studio camera kit.
The AK-HC3500 HD studio camera is a native high-definition studio camera system for studio/direct-to-air switcher facilities and electronic field production. Incorporating three high-performing 2/3 2.2-megapixel IT CCDs, a newly developed 38-bit digital signal processor, and a 14-bit A/D converter, the HC3500 delivers exceptional HD images in 1080/59.94i and 1080/50i.
The HC3500 features an advanced single-channel transfer system and spatial offset processing that reduces aliasing and provides an outstanding 1,100 horizontal lines of resolution, and 60 dB signal-to-noise ratio. The camera is equipped with a 12-axis color matrix to permit precise hue and saturation adjustment of individual colors. Other functions that allow precise HD image control include: skin-tone detail, versatile gamma settings including real-time Dynamic Range Stretch (DRS) that varies the gamma correction to match the contrast within the image, cine gamma to produce warm film-like images, and a new hue protection circuit which enables rich color reproduction even in high light areas, as in a brightly lit scene.
When configured for studio use, the 10.4-pound AK-HC3500 can also be mounted onto an optional build-up unit with a one touch, cable-free setup. The camera can also be used shoulder-mount for EFP applications.
Advanced picture enhancing features including: dynamic detail, programmable gamma, real-time contrast correction gamma, CineGammaTM, an EBU color matrix preset that ensures similar color response in between HD and SD video for seamless intermixing and more.
