The 2/3 type 3CCD system produces high-resolution HD images, Panasonic&s single-channel transfer system and spatial-offset processing technologies improve modulation in high-frequency signal portions. This raises resolution and lowers the more to produce with seven types of video formats, and the AK-HC1500G supports all HD video formates in the world for versatile acquisition.
In addition to the conventional gain-up circuit, the AK-HC1500G and AK-HC1800G use CCD accumulation and horizontal/vertical addition to enable a gain increase of up to +72 dB (minimum illumination 0.015lx).
This function automatically adjusts the white balance as the color temperature gradually changes during outdoors shootings. Images can be automatically adjusted depending on the shooting subject or time.
Automatic gain control (AGC)*
In addition to automatic iris control and continuous automatic variable gain control (-6dB to + 72dB), AGC lets you choose between the normal mode, favor movement, favor clarity, and user setup mode.
a gamma curve and knee slope are estimated to match contrast of each pixel, in real time. When dark, bright, and intermediate areas are all contained in the same scene, this function produces excellent gradation for each area and minimizes blocked shadows and blown highlights. The images of results are enchanced by a visually wide dynamic range.
The AK-HC1500G come equipped with the cine gamma that reproduces cinematic expression with a film quality-like tone. In addition, AK-HC1500G features a variable frame rate function that lets you set the number of frames shot per second, allowing for undercranking / overcranking for fast or slow motion effects.
Use a Down Converter board or HD SDI board enables system expansion.
In addition to the regular range extender (option), the electronic extender enables 2x magnification.
