The Starting Point of Tapeless
The DNS-33W Editcam3 is the latest evolution in tapeless recording.
It combines superb camera technology with sophisticated new features.
Ikegami has continuously upgraded and expanded the state of nonlinear acquisition,
which it introduced to the broadcast market a decade ago.
The DNS-33W radically changes the way video will be captured, edited and distributed.
In the Editcam system,
clips are recorded onto removable media called FieldPak.
Once a FieldPak is inserted into an adapter,
the clips are directly accessed by the Avid nonlinear editor.
It is this ability to edit on the same media that the camera records to
that frees the user from the time consuming process of digitizing.

■ 12-bit A/D Converter
Employing an advanced 12-bit A/D converter ensures improved
contrast in low light luminance portions of the image. Knee
expansion circuitry incorporated at the first stage of the digital
processing restores linearity in high luminance areas which is lost
in the in the pre-knee process. Through this technology, linear
signal processing at 600% is achieved in the digital processing,
resulting in improved signal characteristics, including knee and
■ Adaptive Auto Knee
In addition to the conventional auto knee circuit that varies the
slope of the knee according to the degree of over exposure, the
DNS-33W includes an adaptive auto knee that adapts both the
point and slope of the knee to give improved contrast in the
highlight area. The adaptive auto knee has five different pivot
points, selected by the menu, so that operator can optimize the
performance according to the application.
This function retains color in high light areas where it typically
looses saturation in knee circuit. The Super Knee circuit uses t
