(Maywood, New Jersey/Los Angeles--May 7, 2014) Ikegami announced that Video Equipment Rentals (VER), a leading rental provider to the broadcast and video production industries, has added four new Ikegami HDK-97ARRI cameras to its inventory.

"VER is excited to add the HDK-97ARRI to our Super35 sensor camera offerings," says Wayne Miller, General Manger of VER. "With our extensive experience in both Cinema and Broadcast production, this camera system couldn't have found a better home. VER has provided up to 24 cameras at a time for live concerts and sporting events. From Santana to NASCAR, our clients are looking for more dramatic and superior image quality. Ikegami's HDK-97 delivers in both those categories. Plus it couldn't be easier to integrate into existing broadcast systems."

"The expertise of VER is an optimum match for Ikegami," says Teri Zastrow, Director of Sales & Marketing at Ikegami. "They are a leader in the broadcast rental industry, with an extremely deep knowledge of the cine market. It is the ideal partnership for representing the HDK-97ARRI, which is an extraordinary tool for cinema and broadcast production."

A pioneering marriage of technology between two recognized industry leaders, the HDK-97ARRI is a broadcast-style production camera with digital cinema characteristics. The HDK-97ARRI makes it possible to employ a large format sensor in multiple camera operation, resulting in a "best of both worlds" image acquisition system ideal for use in multi-camera studio and field applications.

Broadcasters and content producers are benefitting from the unprecedented combination of features in the HDK-97 ARRI. Centered around ARRI's Super 35mm CMOS sensor with its associated support circuitry, the system provides such cinematic qualities as shallow depth-of-focus, exceptional dynamic range, and progressive frame rates like 23.98p. Meanwhile, broadcast-grade distribution is enabled with the latest in Ikegami technology, via fiber transmission using up to 2 km SMPTE hybrid fiber/copper camera cable.
