About Panasonic AK-HC1500G

The Panasonic AK-HC1500G Multi-Purpose HD Box Camera is designed to deliver sharp, broadcast-quality, high-definition images to a wide range of applications. Whether you're shooting live sports, in-studio newscasts, scientific image analysis, or videoconferencing, the AK-HC1500G combines its 3 high-performance 2/3" CCDs with a benchmark-setting 14-bit A/D converter to provide a range of cine-like looks and frame rates.

As one of the first multi-format HD cameras to offer variable frame rates (from 4fps to 60fps), the AK-HC1500G further mimics the range and flexibility of a film camera with its lowlight sensitivity and wide dynamic range--delivering rich colors that contain fuller blacks and less washed-out whites.

Meanwhile, its bayonet lens mount makes it compatible with all 2/3" broadcast lenses, while its compact size, HD-SDI output and other professional connections (genlock, tally, etc.) make it truly multi-functional--equally at home in a camera control or pan-tilt-zoom system, on a football field, or in a multi-camera studio shoot.
The AK-HC1500G is the industry's first compact multi-format HD camera and offers compatibility with all of the world's HD formats. This compact; 3.3-pound camera is also the first multi-purpose unit to offer variable frame rates (4fps to 60fps in single-frame increments) and a CineGamma curve to produce film-like images. It teams seamlessly with Panasonic's AJ-HDC27 VariCam ®HD Cinema camera for high-end productions. Or team it with the AW-PH650 (pan/tilt in sealed housing) for outdoor application. Compact to go practically anywhere; the AK-HC1500G is tailor made for assignments ranging from studio use and weather forecasting to live sports and videoconferencing; from scientific image analysis to studio animation.

New 2/3" 1 million-pixel CCD is employed. 1280x720
1 million-pixel CCD is 2/3" in size, being compact and light-weight.

Multiple HD formats supported
Signal output of many different formats enabled by incorporating a format conversion circuit in Panasonic’s original LSI chip. Fabrication of a circuit for 24 Hz-based formats also supported.

14-bit A/D conversion and brand-new DSP featured
Wide dynamic range achieved  Crystal-clear shooting even of images with different brightness levels  Boosting of gain to a maximum 72 dB enabled  Electronic extender function provided  Cine gamma supported Multiple functions

DTL such as high-luminance DTL and skin DTL.  Right and left, top and bottom picture reversing function.

Panasonic AK-HC1500G Features

  • Captures 1080 at 24p/25p/30p/50i/59.94i and 60i and 720 at 50p/59.94p and 60p
  • Standard-setting IT 3-CCD offers improved on-chip lens performance (standard sensitivity of F10.0 at 2000 lux and a smear level of less than -130dB)
  • Single-channel transfer system and spatial-offset processing technologies improve signal modulation depth, thus reducing moire
  • 14-bit A/D converter and adaptive function vary the gamma correction to match the contrast within the image, creating clear, sharp images from dark to bright areas
  • Hue preservation circuit prevents color loss in highlight areas
  • Shoots in variable frame rates (4fps to 60fps in one-second increments) just like a film camera, thereby producing overcranking and undercranking speed effects
  • A special CineGamma curve allows the CCD to produce the tonal beauty, natural gradation and rich colors of film recordings
  • Exceptionally high sensitivity allows shooting in lighting as low as 0.015 lux (at +72dB gain)
  • Environment-friendly, compact design with fewer parts and low power consumption
  • Slot to add option card to expand capabilities for a wide range of applications
  • Supports down converter and analog output unit
  • Electronic Extender function (used with conventional lens extender) magnifies the image by 2 times
