Outline and features
The SK-HD1500 is Hitachi's new Multi-standard
High-Speed (Slow Motion) camera. With its new
2.3 million pixels 3-CCD, the SK-HD1500 provides
three times high speed superior picture, and is
suitable for shooting live sports productions.
outstanding picture quality.
High speed motion output
Three times scanning speed HD output: 1080i
150/179.82Hz or 720p 150/179.82Hz from CCU
with wideband and long distance optical fiber
Multi frame rate
Both three times speed picture and normal
speed picture output simultaneously from CCU.
・1080i 150/179.82Hz or 720p 150/179.82Hz
・1080i 50/59.94Hz and/or 720p 50/59.94Hz
Latest generation Digital technology
The brand new, power efficient Digital Signal
Processor LSI with 40nm design rule provides
very faithful video image reproduction and
Digital video processing and encoding provide
low interference and high stability.
High sensitivity and Signal to Noise ratio
Low noise circuit technology provides a low
signal to noise ratio: 58dB (1X output), 54dB (3X
output) and the standard sensitivity F9 at
2000lx (1080i/50 or 720p/50), F8 at 2000lx
(1080i/59.94 or 720p/59.94)
Even at high gain, clear images are obtained
with low noise.
The new streamlined body design
The new streamlined camera body design has a
low center of gravity for ease of use on the
shoulder. The lightweight camera body is
attachment, and active cooling side panels.
Flicker can be reduced under artificial lighting
A small plug-in setup card (SD card) stores the
user setup and Scene File information.
Digital processing improves Image Highlight
Knee saturation and auto-knee
The auto knee provides a wide dynamic range
by dynamically compressing the video level
above 100%. Knee saturation restores color
saturation to scene highlights above 100%.
Automatic Skin Tone Detail Circuits
Skin tone detail smoothes and softens facial
lines and blemishes without sacrificing overall
scene detail, also provides two separate
settings that can be used separately or
Automatic Skin tone detail provides an easy
and fast means to optimize Skin tone detail.
Variable Detail Boost Frequency
The detail frequency can be adjusted to
provide coarse or fine contours around edges of
subjects in the scene thereby reproducing a
natural and pleasing picture.
12-Vector and Linear Matrix masking
The 12-vector and linear matrix provide the
user a wide latitude in subject image color
Skin Tone masking
Skin tone masking provides "fine" "Painting"
(hue and saturation) of Skin tones without
effecting other colors in the scene.
Gray Scale Automatic Setup
This "through the lens" automatic setup is
automatically setup gain, gamma, black and
flare thus saving the video operator time and
Automatic Shading correction
Automatic shading corrects horizontal and
vertical white shading at the push of a button.
This function provides separate memory of
lens' modulation shading characteristics to
optimize the X1 and X2 lens extender
