Studio camera system, 3MOS sensors, equipped with 1080p, 4x high-speed shooting and high-end image quality, HDR (High Dynamic Range) compatibility.

The AK-HC5000 HD Broadcast Studio Camera is equipped with newly developed 2/3-type MOS sensors that produce high sensitivity and an excellent S/N ratio. While including functions appreciated in the conventional model such as DRS and CineGamma, the AK-HC5000 Series adds new features such as focus assist, flash band compensation, and skew reduction which is realized through high-speed readout from the MOS sensors. There are additional functions to improve shooting experience; including enhanced shock less gain (-3 dB to 36 dB), a user gamma function, black gamma correction according to the pedestal setting, multi-step DNR and easy matrix adjustment.

The AK-HC5000 delivers excellent image quality and operability. When used with the AK-UCU500 Camera Control Unit, it is capable of 1080/60p, 240p image output and high-image-quality uncompressed long-distance transmission. Also available to use alongside this product is the AK-HRP1000/HRP1005 Remote Operation Panel, equipped with a color LCD to provide visibility of the display for smooth control. The camera and camera control unit can be connected for approximately 2,000-meter long-distance transmission of video signals when power is supplied from the camera control unit. The remote operation panel and the camera can be connected using a dedicated cable. The AK-HVF100 230 mm (9-inches) LCD color view finder has also been newly developed and equipped with a large display and diverse functions such as focus assist. Overall, this system offers superior cost performance with respect to both operability and ease of use.

HDR (High Dynamic Range) compatibility. This mode enables the camera to apply an alternative optical electro transfer function (OETF) to selected camera outputs so that the camera can provide a high dynamic range (HDR) image for capable displays or function in a complete HDR live broadcast system. HDR displays use their increased brightness and contrast capabilities to take advantage of the cameras full dynamic range to deliver compelling high contrast images with very bright highlights.
