Easy production of 8K video
We have developed a wide variety of 8K cameras including: a dual-green*2 camera, which played an important role in covering the London Olympics and the 2014 FIFA World Cup; a theater camera that has high sensitivity and silent operation; and a compact single-chip camera.
This processor converts 8K camera output in the dual-green format into full-resolution 8K video. Incorporation of technologies to estimate the local directional characteristics and to reduce the color artifacts have enabled real-time and high-quality conversion.
We are going to use the cameras for shooting various 8K contents including sports and dramas by making the most of their compactness and high image quality.
*1 Demosaicing: A process to reconstruct a full color image from the incomplete color samples captured by single-chip cameras.
*2 Dual-green: Green pixels are placed in a quincunx pattern, and red/blue pixels are placed in the remaining locations
