NAB 2013: Arri And Ikegami Produce A Hybrid Broadcast And Digital Cinema 2k Camera. The forerunner to a 4k broadcast camera?
The new HDK-97ARRI is a broadcast-style production camera with digital cinema characteristics. This Arri and Ikegami development points the way towards making it possible to employ a large format sensor in multiple camera operation. The aim is to produce a ‘best of both worlds’ image acquisition system for use in multi-camera studio and field applications, including conventional broadcast camera operation and video operator control of multiple cameras.
