8K Camera System

Easy production of 8K video

Outline

We are continuing with our studies on 8K camera systems in preparation for the 8K test broadcasting. We have developed various cameras and a demosaicing*1 processor that makes a camera system for full-resolution 8K content production practical.

Features

●Various cameras supporting 8K broadcasting

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.

●Demosaicing processor for converting dual-green format into full-resolution 8K video

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.

Future plans

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
