Ikegami announces a new addition to its range of broadcast-quality cameras. The UHL-F4000 is a compact and lightweight 4K HDR camera with very low power consumption. Designed for use in applications such as aerial video capture and studio robotics, it is capable of capturing broadcast quality colour video across an extremely wide range of night or daytime conditions. Image adjustment capabilities include haze removal, backlight correction and digital zoom.

“Aerial photographers working from helicopters are increasingly keen to use 4K cameras,” comments Michael Lätzsch, Broadcast & Professional Video Division Manager at Ikegami Electronics (Europe) GmbH. “4K cameras tend to be larger and heavier than HD models so require a larger anti-vibration gimbal. In addition, the higher power consumption of 4K cameras causes the internal temperature to rise if a 4K camera is placed in a sealed stabilising unit. This shortens the camera’s lifetime and can even lead to sudden failure. The UHL-F4000 overcomes all these challenges. It is a robust and compact camera head with low power consumption delivering very high image quality.”
