IO Industries rolls out 4K SDI camera
IO Industries’s news 4KSDI camera is a single-piece 4K/UHD camera head with 3G/HD-SDI outputs for connection to separate recorders and monitors. It features a Super-35mm global shutter sensor, interchangeable lens mount, and multiple output formats to support various applications. Designed for use in professional broadcast and production environments, it also suits remote video applications with unmanned aerial or underwater vehicles.The 4KSDI is the first 4K camera designed to get the tight shots in difficult locations that are otherwise impossible with larger camera systems. Despite its size, this small form factor camera delivers the same image quality demanded by professionals. Flexible lens mount options including PL, Nikon F and Canon EF, allow familiar lenses to be used, while an integrated Optical Low Pass Filter helps remove moiré artefacts.
With four 3G/HD-SDI outputs, connection to peripheral devices is made easy. Depending on the output format, either two or four cables are needed to connect the 4KSDI to a growing selection of 4K/UHD field recorders, monitors, and live production switchers. For multi-camera configurations, either stereoscopic or panoramic, precise camera synchronization is possible using a tri-level sync reference.
Features of the 4KSDI include 4K global shutter CMOS sensor, APS-C / Super-35mm size (22.5mm x 11.88mm); DCI 4K 4096×2160 and UHD (3840×2160) output formats; 10-bit 4:2:2/RAW up to 60p, 10-bit 4:4:4 up to 30p, multiple lens mount options (PL, Nikon F, Canon EF); remote settings control with RS485 serial interface or handheld remote control and on-screen menu; tri-level sync input for multi-camera synchronization; and small size: 90x90x60mm, approx. 730g (not including lens mount)
