Targeted at studios and productions requiring high-end functionality at an affordable price, the UC3000 is equipped with a large, full-UHD resolution single MOS sensor with an internal conversion lens that outputs a UHD signal up to 3840/2160/59.94p, while also delivering superior picture quality in HD. The camera's B4 mount accommodates the gamut of existing 2/3-inch lenses to maximize customers' return on their investment in existing lenses, and allowing a wider and more economical choice of glass for sports, concerts and similar applications. The UC3000 also enables shooting with high sensitivity (F10/2000lx), low noise (S/N 60dB+), high resolution (1800 TV lines/UHD) and a wide dynamic range of 600% (-6dB~36dB).
The UC3000 boasts new and innovative functions that enhance the camera's ease-of-use and flexibility. These include Advanced Focus Assist Functions, shockless Gain (-6~36dB), a User Gamma setting, Black Gamma Correction tracking pedestal, and multi-step Digital Noise Reduction (DNR). The camera reduces skew using a high-speed scan from the MOS sensor.
Output formats of the UC3000 with UCU500 include HD (3G-SDI): 1080/59.94p,50p,59.94i,50i, 29.97psF, 25psF, 23.98psF, 23.98p over 59.94i, 720/59.94p,50p, in 4K outputs include 4K (3GSDI x 4): 3840 x 2160/59.94p, 50p, 29.97p, 25p and 23.98P, and in SD, 480/59.94i and 576/50i.
A new Camera Control Unit, the AK-UCU500, provides power up to 6600 feet over hybrid fiber, and outputs 4K signals and HD simultaneously. Two new remote operation panels, the AKHRP1000 and AK-HRP1005, both with color LCD readout displays, provide IP controls. A new 9-inch, Full-HD LCD viewfinder is also available.
The fast, high resolution AK-HC5000, capable of high-speed output up 1080/239.76p, becomes Panasonic's flagship studio model. The camera incorporates new 2/3" 2.2M 3-CMOS sensors with high sensitivity (F11/2000lx), low noise (S/N 60dB+), and resolution measured at 1100 TV lines.
The HC5000 shares many characteristics with the UC3000 including Advanced Focus Assist Functions, shockless Gain (-3~36dB), a User Gamma setting, Black Gamma Correction tracking pedestal, multi-step Digital Noise Reduction (DNR), reduced skew and, DRS and CAC. The HC5000's Flash Band Compensation corrects for the "flash band" effect that can be experienced by most MOS-based imagers.
When used with the HC5000 camera, the AK-UCU500 CCU provides power up to 6600 feet, and outputs signals up to 1080/239.76p/200p. The AK-HRP1000 and AK-HRP1005 remote panels provide IP controls. The new 9-inch, Full-HD LCD viewfinder also works with the HC5000.
The AK-UC3000 camera, AK-UCU500 CCU, AK-HRP1000/1005 ROPs, and AK-HVF100 viewfinder have suggested list prices of $37,000, $19,000, $6,000 and $8,000, respectively. The AK-HC5000 camera and additional accessories, including the AK-HBU500 build-up kit and the AK-MSU1000 master set-up unit, have suggested list prices of $42,000, $23,000 and $23,000, respectively.
