The AK-HC3800 is an HD studio camera equipped with three high-sensitivity; high-quality 2/3-type 2.2-megapixel CCDs; a high-precision 16 bit A/D image processing circuit; and the latest generation 38-bit Digital Signal Processor (DSP). Compact and lightweight at only 8 lbs; it offers chromatic aberration compensation (CAC); scene file settings; and a sophisticated implementation of Panasonic's exclusive dynamic range stretch (DRS).

The HC3800 achieves a high sensitivity of F11 at 59.94Hz (2;000 lx) and an S/N ratio of 60dB. High definition formats can be switched to allow worldwide use at 1080/59.94i and 1080/50i. Output of 720/59.94p video will also be supported via a pre-NAB no-charge firmware upgrade. The newly-developed 16-bit A/D and 38-bit DSP utilize Spatial Offset Technology; and an advanced single transfer system to provide a high resolution picture (1;100 lines) with less moir and a vertical smear level less than -130dB.

The HC3800's DRS function simultaneously reduces blocked detail in shadow areas and blown highlights in scenes where extremely bright and dark objects coexist; and its CAC function can compensate for chromatic aberration at the lens periphery. The low-profile head and low main body design are ergonomically designed for comfortable operation and provide an unobstructed view to the camera operator's right-hand side. The HC3800 is also equipped with a Film Rec Gamma function adapted from Panasonic's renowned VariCam models; and a Scan Reverse function for cinema lens adaptors.

Adding the AK-HCU200 camera control unit (CCU); and the AK-HRP200G remote operation panel (ROP) to the HC3800 creates a low cost; high quality studio camera system that delivers world-class uncompressed video and system control via optical fiber transmission. The new AK-HVF70G compact and lightweight 7" LCD viewfinder completes the basic studio camera system.

The AK-HCU200 CCU; rack-mountable; lightweight and measuring 2U in height; has two HD/SD-SDI output channels and two additional HD/SD-SDI output channels that can be used in conjunction with the picture monitor outs. For return video inputs; the CCU is equipped with two HD/SDSDI channels and one VBS (analog composite video) channel. A down converter is also incorporated and an aspect ratio of an HD/SD-SDI out can be selected from Letterbox; Crop or Squeeze. Embedded audio is supported for HD/SD-SDI output and prompter input is provided.

The HCU200 and the AK-HC3800 can be connected with SMPTE 311 hybrid fiber cables over a distance of approximately 1;000 meters for transmission of uncompressed video; power; control; and other functions. The compact; 2.9-pound AK-HRP200 remote operation panel provides precise; rapid; and comprehensive control of the HC3800's powerful capabilities. Currently; the HRP200 and HCU200 connect via optional serial cables (e.g. ROP-50M) at a distance of up to 50 meters. The free system firmware upgrade available before NAB 2013 will add IP control communication between ROP and HCU; and will also permit the ROP to set-up and control Panasonic PTZ cameras such as the AW-HE120 via IP. Scene files; user files and lens files can be stored on and retrieved from SD-HC memory cards at both the HCU and HRP control panel.

The AK-HVF70 seven-inch color LCD serves as an electronic viewfinder (EVF) and provides superb picture quality with SWVGA (1;024 x 600 pixels) resolution. It includes as contrast; brightness and peaking adjustments; and is equipped with three user assignable function switches. The compact EVF features a Focus in Red" function; which highlights the edges of an object in red; and a "Pixel-to-Pixel" function; which allows the inputted video to be displayed without resizing. Additional EVF options for the HC3800 include the two-inch HD monochrome; model AJ-HVF21KG; and the one-inch; color LCD; model AJ-CVF100G.
