4KSDI

Overview Specifications Workflow Accessories Lenses Downloads

Introducing the IO Industries 4KSDI - the first compact 4K/UHD camera head designed to fit where larger cameras cannot. But despite its size, this small form factor camera has the capability to deliver the high-quality imagery demanded by industry professionals. The extensive feature set makes the 4KSDI easy to deploy in either live event broadcasts or scripted productions.

The tough aluminum chassis includes rugged mounting points on all sides, proving it really can be placed anywhere. Multiple interchangeable lens mounts are available including Arri PL, Nikon F and Canon EF, allowing a range of familiar lenses to be used. In addition, an integrated Optical Low Pass Filter helps block IR pollution and remove moiré artifacts. At the heart of the camera sits a Super 35mm global shutter CMOS sensor with 12 stops of dynamic range. Four standard 3G/HD-SDI outputs make connecting the 4KSDI to peripheral devices easy. Depending on the output format, either two or four cables are needed to connect the 4KSDI to a growing selection of 4K/UHD-supported field recorders, monitors, and live production switchers. And, for stereoscopic or panoramic configurations, or live-to-air broadcasts, an HD tri-level sync reference is all that’s needed for precise multi-camera synchronization.

With the 4KSDI, the power of 4K video can truly fit in the palm of your hand.

4K Global Shutter Camera
The 4KSDI is the perfect small camera for shooting in tight spaces where professional quality is a must. The camera can output in both DCI 4K and UHDTV formats, making it an ideal tool for both live broadcast and production environments.
