A sidenote, I suspect, to the 2013 show. But anyway, here it is:

Ikegami are refreshingly upfront about the fact that it isn't representative of a lot of innovation - it's Arri's Alexa front end on an existing Ikegami studio camera backend. You won't, we suspect, find it in a rental house ready to go out as a production camera, which I think is a shame, but I appreciate that my penchant for ENG-style cameras is probably a bit idiosyncratic.

 

The idea is that it'll be used for multicamera sitcoms and the like, which apparently both companies had been asked for by the more traditional, studio-bound broadcasters among their clients. If you notice a sudden uptick in the quality (and downtick in the available depth of field) of your favourite sitcom, this may be why.
