Panasonic PAN-AKUC4000GSJ (PAN_AKUC4000GSJ, PAN/AKUC4000GSJ, PAN AKUC4000GSJ) 4K Studio Camera with 4.4K Sensor Lemo Connector Model
This camera offers the high video quality that is only possible with a large sensor, along with a wide range of 4K acquisition with the latest functions such as HDR, BT.2020 and high-speed shooting. The camera keeps up with diversifying systems with features such as 12G-SDI, TICO, over SDI (4K over 3G-SDI) output and MoIP, making it suitable not only for studio production but for a wide range of operations such as sports and events. With high video quality and a system that can be adapted to various situations, this camera provides the level of high-end production that is needed in the 4K age.
This camera has a newly developed large 4.4K sensor. Beyond 4K sampling is used to achieve an ultra-highdefinition resolution of 2000 TV lines. UHD 12G-SDI output (x2) and TICO over SDI output (x1) included as a standard feature. Supports high-speed 2x, 3x or 4x output in HD mode at 1080p, 1080i and 720p simultaneously with standard (1x) output.
With a newly developed 4.4K sensor, it realises ultra-high-definition resolution, high sensitivity, low noise and a wide dynamic range. 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 maximises the effectiveness of incident light. 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. High-speed capture at 1080p, 1080i and 720p is available for sports and other active settings. This feature achieves a richly detailed picture even for fast-moving subjects. 2x, 3x or 4x output can be selected for compatibility with various slow-motion servers. 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 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).
With the AK-UCU600 Camera Control Unit (CCU), uncompressed long distance transmission of 4K/HD video signals via optical fibre is supported. The AK-HRP1000GJ/1005GJ Remote Operation Panel (ROP) is equipped with both a colour LCD display that provides excellent visibility and functions for quick response. This system achieves high-quality video and excellent operability. In cases where power is supplied by the CCU, it is possible to transmit at a long distance of up to approx. 2,000 m between the camera and the CCU. The distance can be extended up to 10,000m by providing a local power supply at the camera head and using general-purpose single mode optical fibre. Between the CCU and the ROP, in addition to a dedicated serial line, IP connection via LAN cable is also supported.
The AK-UC4000 is equipped with a newly developed large-format 4.4K MOS sensor. Two shooting modes can be selected. In High Sense Mode, it is possible to obtain an S/N ratio of 62 dB*2 or higher while also achieving F10 high sensitivity. The result is low-noise and high-image-quality video.
This camera’s normal and low skew reading speeds are around 1/2 and 1/3 of those on a standard camera (1/60 of a second) respectively. The skewing characteristic of MOS sensors has been reduced by reading out the MOS sensor signal at high speed.
This exclusive technology utilises communication between the lens and camera to deploy for a sophisticated algorithm that will automatically compensate for the registration error caused by lens chromatic aberration, and minimise the circumjacent blur.
This mode provides rich gradation to render contrast, colour 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.
This camera is compatible with BT.2020, a colour space that can recreate almost every colour in the natural world, enabling a wider range of colour expression. It is possible to smoothly transition the image changes that occur when gain is changed. In addition, with the 0.1 dB step master gain adjustment function, you can fine tune the adjustments to match the scene being shot. For camera head output (HD SDI 1/HD SDI 2), it is possible to select 1080p, 1080i, and 720p.
