SK-HD1200 has achieved an extremely low noise HDTV image, with the integration of new 2.3 million pixel, micro-lens array, native 1080p CCDs.

These new sensors enable the SK-HD1200 to achieve superior picture quality, horizontal and vertical resolution, dynamic range response, sensitivity and ultra-low vertical smear characteristics.

All major components of the Hitachi SK-HD1200 camera system possess their own DSP processor. Different DSP ICs are used independently for the HDTV camera head processing, the transmission system and the Camera Control Unit (CCU) processing. The new power-efficient digital signal processor LSI's are designed under the 40nm rule with dynamic processing capability in excess of 38-bits per pixel, per RGB channel.

Hitachi's DSP processors are designed to support the higher bandwidth of progressive readout HDTV sensors. The increased dynamic headroom of the SK-HD1200 allows faithful reproduction of even the most contrasting images. An excellent overall signal-to-noise ratio is achieved by using proprietary low-noise circuit technology without resorting to noise filtering methods. Even at high gain, clear images are obtained with little noise.

Hitachi has brought to market the first 3Gbps, fully digital optical transmission system in an HDTV production camera. It is the most accurate transport available for 1080p images from the camera head to the camera control unit. All command audio and video signals to and from the camera are digitally transmitted and hence totally immune to EMI/ RFI interference. Camera power and cable condition supervision is enabled using standard SMPTE311-type Hybrid Fibre Cable. The maximum HFOC length with applied camera power and fully operational facilities is 4,000m (13,200 feet) with no utility power.
