Sharp presenta la uova camera 8C-B60A  8K, 60fps

Basata su se CMOS Super35, registra a 8 K (60p), ed arriva a registrare fino a 40 minuti, su un sistema di memoria di 2TB.

E’ prevista anche la trasmisissione “live” sempre in 8K, non compresso, contemporaneamente alla registrazione.

Il codec integrato è l’HQX dell Grass Valley (4: 2: 2 campionamento e registrazione a 10 bit, 8K (60fps)) e con compressione video a 6 Gbps. Mentre, l’attacco lenti è in standard PL.

Questa nuova camera, a dimostraziohe non si tratta di un prototipo, è prevista disponibile sul mercato gia a fine anno o inizio nuovo, ad un costo che si dovrebbe agirare intorno ai 77.000$ e, sarà esposta nello stand Sharp in occasione dell’Inter BEE 2017, in calendartio alla Makuhari Messe a Mihama, Chiba, Giappone, dal 15 al 17 novembre 2017.

Ecco le caratteristiche che vengono presentata sul sito dell’azienda:

Major Features

  • 1. World’s first camcorder integrating capabilities for video shooting and recording, playback, and line output for 8K (60p).
  • 2. Compatible with 8K (60p) shooting thanks to a large, Super 35-mm-equivalent CMOS image sensor with 33 million pixels.
  • 3. Realizes 4:2:2 sampling*6 and 10-bit recording of 8K (60p) images. A compression method that exerts low burden on the CPU makes editing more efficient and allows approximately 40 minutes of continuous recording (when using 2TB SSD pack).
  • 4. Real-time output of uncompressed 8K (60P) images can be performed simultaneously with recording (equipped with quad-link 12G-SDI output terminal), making possible live 8K transmissions and replay output after recording.
  • 5. Built-in SSD back slot for recording media. Realizes one-person operation at 8K shooting with V-mount battery drive.
  • *1 As of July 2017. (based on Sharp survey)
  • *2 Displays 60 frames per second (progressive).
  • *3 The 8C-B60A requires a commercially available lens, viewfinder, microphone, etc.
  • *4 Business fields: Design, manufacture, and sale of video and still image peripherals and software, HDTV studio peripherals, digital-broadcast-related peripherals, and display measuring instruments; sale of modules and systems related to communication, control, and measurement.
  • *5 Grass Valley HQX Codec
  • *6 One of the standardized methods for sampling digital video signals.
