The ability to capture accurate colors and rich skin tones is a must for any filmmaker. Now, that same outstanding cinematic performance is coming to you live. With the latest firmware upgrade, the AK-UC4000 4K HDR broadcast studio camera incorporates the full power of the renowned colorimetry of the EVA1 and the VariCam lineup of cinema cameras and makes it accessible for your live production workflow. The UC4000 camera system has now unlocked V-Log capture ability to deliver high dynamic range and broad colors for live or near-live productions.

V-Log delivers a very flat image (if observed on a standard monitor) whilst maintaining all of the imagers color & contrast information. This means that there is a greater level of play when the images are put through post-production processes. The sensor of the AK-UC4000 achieves a wide color gamut, which is the optimum color space of the camera and achieves a color space that is wider than BT.2020. ISO recorded V-Log content has log characteristics that are somewhat reminiscent of scanned film and V-Gamut delivers a color space even larger than film.

With available V-Log, the AK-UC4000 becomes fully compatible with the CINELIVE workflow of the VariCam LT, as well as the EVA-LIVE workflow of the EVA1. This allows for accurate camera color matching across your production and opens up a world of possibilities.

Now, with its recent official approval by the Netflix Post Alliance, the AK-UC4000 joins the list with the already approved Cinema VariCam lineup and the EVA1 cameras as another powerhouse for creating Netflix approved content. The UC4000 is an especially popular choice for camera rentals and fly packs, most recently, with Brown Note Productions, Clark Media, Fuse, Freeman, Hartford Technology Rentals, Rentex, TV Pro Gear and others, and excels in live production scenarios. With the ability to use long broadcast lenses, B4 mounts & build-up units while maintaining your cinematic look and post workflow with V-Log, the UC4000 becomes an ideal choice for post-production workflows as well.
