Model Details

The SK-HD1300 is Hitachi's top-of-the-line progressive scan HD Studio and EFP camera. Outstanding images are acquired by three 2/3" 2.3 megapixel progressive scan MOS imagers. Hitachi's implementation of the most advanced digital processing technology provides low-noise and high dynamic range pictures. The HD signal is generated by our newest UAIT (Ultra-Advanced) MOS imagers. Digital Signal Processing is handled by 38-bit Hitachi DSP's. The SK-HD1300 is progressive scan throughout the entire camera chain and outputs 1080/60p, 1080i, 720p and SD-SDI. A new CU-HD1300(X) multi-format CCU connects to long-range triax and/or SMPTE fiber optic cable by simply switching the camera head adapters. The 3G HD signal is generated by our newest UAIT (Ultra-Advanced) 2/3" 2.6 megapixel MOS imagers. The SK- HD1300-HS is progressive scan throughout the entire camera chain. Outputs include SD-SDI, 720p, 1080i and 1080p.
