Tapeless Camera System
Naoki Kashimura, Ikegami's General Manager for Corporate Strategy and Marketing, comments:
"In the mid-1990s we could foresee the technological future, and we introduced tapeless broadcast camera systems with hard disk drives as the recording media. We recall that there were many big problems to overcome - such as how to protect the HDD from shock and vibration and how to develop stable software to avoid loss of material in a broadcast field-acquisition environment.
We are delighted to have been recognised for our contribution to the technical advancement of broadcast equipment.
Based on the vast experience gained with the development and operation of the Editcam, Ikegami has now selected Flash Memory as a suitable recording media for its latest non-linear product range - the GF SERIES of products - as Flash Memory has now evolved in technology, capacity and is also at an acceptable price.
Ikegami will continue looking to the future and keep contributing to the progress of broadcast technology."
The 62nd Annual Technology & Engineering Emmy® Awards that will take place on Thursday, January 6th, 2011 as part of the 2011 International CES in Las Vegas.
