Hitachi’s advanced digital signal processing

Each essential part of the Hitachi Z-HD5500E camera system has its own DSP processor. Unique, independent DSP IC’s are used for camera head processing, the transmission system and Camera Control Unit (CCU) processing. Hitachi’s new, power efficient digital signal processors are designed to work with future 2K imaging technologies, offering excellent return on investment.

The Z-HD5500E achieves an outstanding signal-to-noise ratio specification of 62dB using Hitachi’s proprietary low-noise circuit technology. Standard sensitivity is rated at F10 (59.94Hz)/F11 (50Hz) at 2000 lx. Clear images are obtained with little noise, even at high gain. High horizontal resolution performance of 1000TVL (Luminance channel) is the pinnacle of picture sharpness and is an attribute of the most transparent signal processing path of any Hitachi digital camera manufactured to date.

Digital signal transmission via Hybrid Fiber Optical Cable

The Z-HD5500E camera system utilizes industry standard Hybrid Fiber-optic cable (HFOC) connectors made of high-strength materials, that insure durability and reliable performance under the most demanding TV production conditions. The maximum HFOC length with applied camera power and fully operational facilities is 4,000m (13,200 feet) with no utility power*. It provides 10x the distance of Multicore cable. Optical power meters at the camera head (via engineering menu) and CCU front panel indicate the optical condition of both transmitting and receiving signals independently to accurately depict proximity to the “digital cliff” (maximum cable distance) or provide basic HFOC diagnostics.

Dockable design

Hitachi’s 2-piece chassis allows the use of Digital Fiber (1.5G and/or 3G), Digital Triax (1.5G and/or 3G) and Wireless camera adapters to offer the greatest flexibility of any camera in this price class.
