High image quality, easy operation and high reliabilityfrom a new generation HD multi-format camera.
The Panasonic AK-HC3500 2/3-type HD Studio Camera is a professional, multi-format camera that captures 1080i video using three 2/3-type 2.2-megapixel CCDs. By combining a 14-bit A/D converter with 38-bit digital signal processing, the camera's low smear level and reduced moiré contribute to exceptional imagery even in lowlight environments. A variety of image controls go further to improve image quality depending on the shooting situation, with such high-performance functions as dynamic range stretch, cine gamma curve, skin tone detail correction, and enhanced DTL signal processing. In keeping with its "multi-format" designation, the AK-HC3500E shoots both 1080i59.94Hz and 50Hz HD formats. AK-HC3500E has VBS out as standard for prompter output.
The AK-HC3500E utilizes Panasonic CCD sensor technology and the improved on-chip lens performance offers a high sensitivity of F10 (1080/59.94i) or F11 (1080/50i) at 2000 lx, a low smear level and an excellent signal to noise ratio of 60 dB. Panasonic's single-channel transfer system and spatial-offset processing technologies improve signal modulation depth and reduce moiré. Combine this with the 14-bit A/D conversion; a newly-developed 38-bit Digital Signal Processing (DSP) and Panasonic's original real-time gamma correction to enable high quality images with Dynamic Range Stretch (DRS) and other high-performance functions makes the Panasonic AK-HC3500E a world class leader in studio acquisition.
Designed for easy operation and expandability The AK-HC3500E incorporates Panasonic's extensive broadcast camera design know-how to provide even easier operation. Convenient features include a backlight on the rear operation panel for improved operation in dark settings. In response to customer requests, we have made numerous improvements over prior models. These include optimal weight balance, boosted efficiency when used with a build-up unit, and a low centre of gravity for more comfortable handling. Thanks to this advanced design, the AK-HC3500E helps to reduce user fatigue while assuring exceptional efficiency both in the studio and at outdoor venues.

Dynamic Range Stretch (DRS) Function
In scenes with mixed contrast, the DRS function can automatically suppresses blocked shadows and blown highlights.
Cine Gamma Curve
Thanks to its cine gamma curve, the AK-HC3500 can produce images with the same kind of tone, gradation and color as a film.
The 12-axis color correction function allows precise and independent hue and saturation adjustment of individual colors.
Skin Tone Detail Correction
Separately reducing sharpness of two skin tones helps tone down wrinkles and dull areas to produce beautiful, naturally textured results when shooting people.
Enhanced DTL Signal Processing
Enhanced DTL signal processing ensures superb picture quality with minimal noise in horizontal and vertical directions, as well as in the image's dark and brightly lit areas.
Color Correction Matrix
EBU or NTSC preset color correction matrix can be selected.
