AK-UC3000 - 4K Studio Camera - Panasonic

With the newly developed large-format 4K sensor, this camera produces highly expressive 4K video with rich gradation in addition to supporting simultaneous HD/SD.

The AK-UC3000 studio camera is yet another Panasonic innovation in broadcast technology. Users can operate the camera in both 4K and HD modes. In HD mode the AK-UC3000 produces HD images with high sensitivity and low noise. While including functions appreciated in the conventional model such as DRS and CineGamma, the AK-UC3000 Series adds new features such as focus assist, flash band compensation, and skew reduction, which is realized through high-speed scan from the MOS sensor. There are additional functions to improve shooting experience including enhanced shock less gain (-6 dB to 36 dB), a user gamma function, black gamma correction according to the pedestal setting, multi-step DNR and easy matrix adjustment. AK-UC3000 Series achieves excellent image quality and operability.

When paired with the AK-UCU500 Camera Control Unit, it is capable of 4K image production and 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 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.
