Large 4.4K Sensor

With a newly developed 4.4K sensor, the AK-UC4000 realizes ultra-high-definition resolution, high sensitivity, low noise and a wide dynamic range.

B4 Mount

The 2/3 lens can be used without an external adapter, and the internal lens is specially designed for large sensors, ensuring high video quality. This new acquisition method maximizes the effectiveness of incident light.

2000-TV Line Resolution

Beyond 4K sampling achieves a resolution of 2000 TV lines in the horizontal and vertical directions for a richly detailed picture of a wide range of subjects in a variety of settings.

Future Proof Infrastructure in AK-UCU600 (CCU)

This camera supports the uncompressed 12G-SDI output that is needed in the 4K age and enables 4K video to be transferred with one cable. Light compression technology called TICO*2 is also used, enabling 4K video to be sent by 3G-SDI without losing video quality, so that the current HD infrastructure can be used in 4K systems. It is also expected to support the next generation of MoIP (Media Over IP)*3.

HDR (High Dynamic Range) Compatibility

This mode provides rich gradation to render contrast, color and shadow in dark image areas that could not previously be reproduced due to blackout, thus resulting in more realistic image quality. It supports a variable HDR by adjusting the high dynamic range. In addition, it is possible to configure a system supporting simultaneous HDR/SDR in order to handle production environments with both. SDR image can be adjusted over exposed by offset gain and knee function adjusts bright image as well as HDR.

ITU-R BT.2020

This camera is compatible with BT.2020, a color space that can recreate almost every color in the natural world, enabling a wider range of color expression.

AK-UCU600 Camera Control Unit (CCU)

  • Contains a dual UHD 12G-SDI system, and supports 3G-SDI quad link with quadrant or two-sample interleave
  • Optical fiber transmission of uncompressed video signals over a distance of approx. 2,000 m between camera and CCU*1
  • Equipped with a CAC (Chromatic Aberration Compensation) function capable of correcting even slight chromatic aberration at the lens periphery
  • The DRS (Dynamic Range Stretch) function suppresses blocked shadows and blown highlights. Black gamma function for independent color settings in dark areas
  • The compact, lightweight unit measures 2U in height and is rack-mountable.
  • Supports IP streaming (100 Base-T)
  • SD memory card can be used for saving user files and updating firmware versions.
  • Dual uncompressed12G-SDI output
  • Supports TICO*2 over SDI (4K over 3G-SDI) output (4K signal can be transferred by a conventional 3G-SDI cable)
  • Supports HDR/SDR simultaneous output and HDR BT.2020/BT.709 simultaneous output.
  • 12G-SDI output and TICO over SDI (4K over 3G-SDI) output is compatible with the AK-UC3000*3
