When Stony Brook University selected new cameras for its upgrade to HD, it looked for models that could handle the constantly move from the studios to event spaces on campus.
MAYWOOD, N.J. – With more than 200 buildings spread over nearly 1,500 acres, Stony Brook University in Long Island has a lot of ground to cover, particularly for the school’s in-house production company.
Part of Ikegami’s Unicam HD line, the HDK-95C can be upgraded to 24p and 3G formats, including 1080/60p and 4:4:4 24p.
“Our video production group produces a wide variety of content for the university,” said Gary Van Sise, director of Educational Technologies at Stony Brook University. “Our projects include creating educational and promotional materials, documenting faculty research as well as streaming live events.”
When the university selected new cameras for its upgrade to HD, it looked for models that could handle the constantly move from the studios to event spaces on campus. To improve the school’s production efforts, the university recently installed three new Ikegami HDK-95C digital portable CMOS camera systems. According to Van Sise, the cameras were selected for their CMOS imagery, ease-of-use and reliability.
Part of Ikegami’s Unicam HD line, the HDK-95C can be upgraded to 24p and 3G formats, including 1080/60p and 4:4:4 24p. Features include the native multiformat 2.5 million pixel, 2/3 inch CMOS sensors. “We have an upgrade path with the HDK-95C which would not be available to us from most other cameras,” Van Sise said.
The Ikegami HDK-95C has proven viable for use in the field or in the studio. “These are our go-to cameras for any type of event work,” Van Sise said. “Our operators appreciate how easy the HDK-95C is to use, and the level of control that these cameras offer.”
The CMOS imagery of the Ikegami HDK-95C gives Stony Brook University what it was looking for in a camera, he said. “The variety of programs that we cover is just incredible, and producing video for Stony Brook allows us to be a part of all the great things that the university is doing,” Van Sise said.
