  • Panasonic


    Starting 13 September, IBC 2013 will be held in Amsterdam. I would like to give all of you a preview of what we will have on display at the show.

    We have two main points we are trying to express:

    • improvements to the current HD workflows that support our users’ business
    • strategy for a future movement to 4K

    Panasonic believes that the simultaneous advancement of these two issues is extremely important.

    Following this line of thinking, at IBC we will be holding detailed demonstrations featuring content management systems and cloud-based solutions, as well as new file-based camcorders in our P2HD and AVCCAM lines, also a new “handy” studio camera, a new 2ME live switcher, and new HD production tools.

    We will also be displaying some solutions for “Beyond HD”, including our Ultra Wide Angle Camera system, which provides a stunning 64:9 picture.

    Finally, we will be making major announcements regarding our 4K strategy. I can’t say more than that at the moment, so ask that you please look forward to our press announcements from Amsterdam!

    For anyone attending IBC-come see us at Booth C45 in Hall 9!

  • At IBC, Panasonic Professional Camera Solutions has unveiled its plans to expand its public network transmission function to the new AVC-ULTRA supporting 2/3 type shoulder camcorder AJ-PX5000 and following hand-held camcorder, the AJ-PX270. The camcorders and the wireless, cloud-based network workflow aim to facilitate the work of professionals in electronic newsgathering.

    Panasonic’s public network transmission function works via a mobile telephone network and will be supported by the new 2/3 type shoulder camcorder, AJ-PX5000, and the AJ-PX270 hand-held camcorder. These camcorders will feature the low-bit recording system with AVC-LongG format of the AVC-ULTRA CODEC technologies, which offers a highly effective workflow for Electronic Newsgathering applications.

    The AJ-PX5000 camcorder will be able to transmit proxy video to a cloud server from almost anywhere by using a telephone line network. A future upgrade will also enable simultaneous transmission whilst recording. In order to enable the exchange of AV content via a mobile network, an optional 3G/4G/LTE dongle, which replaces the traditional uplink device, and specific camcorder firmware need to be installed. Recorded content can be shared almost instantly and can be accessed from anywhere, which drastically changes the broadcasters’ ENG workflow. The advanced network function so far featured on two Panasonic P2 HD camcorders, AJ-HPX3100 and AG-HPX600. Via a Wi-Fi connection, these models provide a connection between the camcorder and a notebook PC and/or tablet device. That connection enables various wireless camera functions such as streaming, remote camera control and Proxy list editing.

    To complement its wireless network transmission functions, Panasonic acquired the European-based cloud service provider, CAMERAMANAGER ( in July 2013. Panasonic will expand its cloud service based on this platform in Europe. In addition, Panasonic is working on strategic partnerships that will help establish efficient network-based workflows and further improve the workflow of video creators, including broadcast stations.

    Panasonic first announced the AJ-PX5000, its first P2 HD camcorder with integrated AVC-ULTRA recording and built-in microP2 card slots, at NAB 2013. The 2/3 type, 2.2M 3-MOS camera combines superb image production, lightweight, a variety of professional I/Os and innovative expandability. The camcorder features 720p and 1080p/i recording, and is the first P2 camcorder that will record in full-resolution, 10-bit 1080/50p. With its breadth of options, the AJ-PX5000 is designed to address niches in network news, documentary, high-end corporate and sports production, as well as the rental market.

    The AJ-PX5000 will be launched in October 2013, the AJ-PX270 and the rollout of the network workflow is planned for spring 2014. More information about this network workflow can be discovered at Panasonic’s IBC booth, #9.C45, from 13 till 17 September. Alternatively, please visit:

  • Amsterdam. 13 September 2013, Panasonic Professional Camera Solutions announces that it has assisted its long-time partner Grass Valley® with the integration of AVC-LongG support in its offering. Grass Valley’s newest upgrade to its K2® server products now includes powerful management support for this compression type, which is part of Panasonic’s new AVC-ULTRA codec family of products. Grass Valley’s K2 Summit® and K2 Solo® are the first broadcast servers on the market to support playout of the AVC-LongG recording format.

    Panasonic’s AVC-ULTRA offers recording in full HD to meet a variety of user needs from mastering to transmission.
