JVC TO DEMONSTRATE ULTRA HIGH
RESOLUTION IMAGING AT NAB
JVC demonstrates KY-F4000 4K, 60p Live Camera.
- Las Vegas, NV (April 20, 2009)
— At NAB 2009, JVC provides an exciting glimpse into the world of
ultra high resolution imaging with a live demonstration of its
KY-F4000 real-time 4K camera. Live 60p images from the KY-F4000 are
displayed on JVC’s new 56-inch LCD panel with 4K resolution. This
compact camera features a single 1.25-inch CMOS image sensor of 3840
x 2160 pixels, capable of producing live images with 4 times the
resolution of full HD.
- The KY-F4000 features ultra high resolution
imaging, with a 60 progressive frame live output capability,
including HDSDI Dual Link (4:2:2/10 bit 4 ch) and DVI Single Link
(4:4:4/8 bit x 4ch). The camera also features a built-in genlock
input, HDSDI 1080 (60i/59.94i). Additional specifications include an
RGB Bayer color filter, switchable 60p/59.94 frame rate, and for the
demonstration, a Nikon F-mount is used.
- The two-piece design of the KY-F4000 includes
a compact, lightweight camera head at 6.6 lbs, which is ideal for pan and tilt mounting applications. The CCU
processor can be separated from the camera head at a distance of 328
- Other 4K cameras on the market, such as RED
and Arri, are primarily used for cinema applications which do not
require live signal output. This makes JVC the unique choice for
high-end applications including:
- Corporate/military conference systems can fully utilize 4K display
systems (already installed) with cameras that can bring a new level
of realism to remote conferencing.
- 4K imaging can provide the ultimate real-time experience in a
learning situations especially those involving live demonstrations
- “By including real time output for display
or transmission, the engineers at JVC are really thinking ahead,”
says Edgar Shane, senior product engineering manager of JVC U.S.A..
“Where other 4K cameras on the market have been designed for
cinema and are processing at 24p to 30p, we are offering full 60p
output, with live transmission capability, because we believe that’s
the future of ultra high resolution.”
- With the demonstration of the KY-F4000, JVC
is positioned to be a major player in the 4K arena. JVC is currently
shipping a 4K D-ILA projector, the DLA-SH4K. The addition of a 4K
camera and 4K LCD monitor brings full capture capability and further
display options to the product line. The KY-F4000 will be available
in April 2010, priced under $200,000.

Jersey, is a division of JVC Americas Corp., a wholly-owned
