AltaSens will showcase these new products in the Central Hall at the National Association of Broadcasters (NAB) show in Nevada at the Las Vegas Convention Center, April 13th – 16th, booth C12435.
ALTASENS’ AL-CM460 Camera Module – This small yet versatile device delivers full video processing control of industry-standard, ultra-clear UHD 4K video at 60 fps while simultaneously saving to SD card and outputting via Fiber Optic, 4 x 3G-SDI, or HDMI 2.0. The Micro Four Thirds (MFT) lens mount allows the capture of high-end cinematic imagery with affordable lenses, while the short flange focal distance means most cinema lenses can be adapted for use. Multiple down-converted formats also offer superior quality video for applications using HD footage. The AL-CM460 is driven by the powerful AL41410C 4K CMOS image sensor, with 5.2 um pixel pitch for higher sensitivity and lower noise, and captures 4K frames in 12-bit ADC Resolution at up to 72 fps for either UHD 3840 x 2160 or DCI 4096 x 2160 format 4K video. The sensor’s native 4512 x 3008 resolution can be read at up to 50 fps. Experience the AL-CM460 – a portable, customizable, and sophisticated solution for all of your production needs!
"Owing to the fruits of extensive collaboration with our parent, JVC Kenwood, and our camera partner, Bradley Engineering, we are thrilled to debut our excellent 4K Image sensor simultaneously with leading edge UHD camera solutions to the broadcast community," explained Lester Kozlowski, the company’s founder and CEO.
Ilya Koshkin, Vice President of Business Development at AltaSens (IKoshkin@AltaSens.com), added, "The unmatched versatility of our 4K Camera Module makes it an ideal solution for nearly any application where crystal clear "Beyond HD" video quality and flexible system design are a priority."
