News Image
Panasonic has been awarded four accolades in the European Imaging Sound Association’s (EISA) 2014 awards, demonstrating the Digital Imaging and Audio Visual innovation in its 2014 European consumer electronics product range.

Panasonic picked up three awards for the ‘European Photo & Video Camera 2014-15 ’ with the LUMIX DMC‐GH4; ‘European Travel Compact Camera 2014-2015’ with the LUMIX DMC‐TZ60 and ‘European Advanced Compact Camera 2014-2015’ with the LUMIX DMC‐FZ1000.
Success was also had in the Home AV division with the Panasonic DMP‐BDT700 Blu-Ray player picking up ‘European Blu-Ray Player 2014-2015’.
In naming the LUMIX DMC-GH4 as its ‘European Photo & Video Camera 2014 – 2015’, the EISA jury noted that it "The Panasonic LUMIX GH4 is one of the most feature-heavy cameras on the market. The 16-megapixel Live MOS sensor captures high-quality still images and provides professional 4K video-recording capabilities. It allows users to shoot slow or fast-motion footage using a frame rate of between 2fps and 96fps. Audio can be recorded and monitored using an external microphone, and by using the optional interface it is possible to output high-quality, uncompressed 4K footage via micro-HDMI. The GH4 features a sharp OLED live viewfinder, and a bright 3-inch monitor, and the weather-sealed magnesium-alloy body was designed to withstand professional use."
The latest in Panasonic’s LUMIX TZ series of compact cameras, the LUMIX DMC-TZ60 was designed to bean all-purpose companion for capturing everyday journeys. The EISA jury said: "this latest-generation travel compact camera introduces an electronic viewfinder as well as raw file support, enhanced video features and a new 30x Leica DC Vario-Elmarit 24–720mm (full-frame-equivalent) zoom lens with an aperture of F3.3-6.4. Sporting an improved hybrid optical image stabiliser for video capture, the TZ60 compensates for camera movement in five directions, making it usable even for hand-held photo and video shooting at long focal lengths. In addition, the TZ60 offers GPS navigation, as well as Wi-Fi connectivity with easy NFC setup, for the benefit of the traveller."
Panasonic’s LUMIX FZ1000, provides stunning image quality and 4K video recording. The EISA jury said the FZ1000 is "a very good camera for photography, with a big 1‐inch MOS sensor that produces little noise and offers a resolution of 20 megapixels, while for the demanding user raw shooting is offered in addition to the JPEG format. In low‐light shooting situations, the ISO setting can be turned up to ISO 12,800. The Leica DC‐Vario‐Elmarit F2.8‐4 lens provides a full‐frame‐equivalent focal range."
Panasonic’s BDT700 Blu-Ray player is designed to support high picture quality available today and in years to come.
The EISA Jury commented that the "improved UniPhier chipset separates processing of audio and video signals, with the video path able to be switched off entirely. The result is audiophile sound, delivered through discrete 7.1-channel analogue outputs and 192kHz/32-bit DACs, or via digital outputs. Picture and audio quality can be adjusted via in-depth tuning options – including colour and gamma settings – in a simple-to use interface. Full HD Blu-ray images showcase impressive detail, and the DMP-BDT700 can upscale them to THX-certified 4K resolution. Additional features of this elegantly-designed player include external media playback from USB, SD card and a home network (with support for hi-res FLAC and WAV files), plus access to Panasonic’s content-rich Internet Apps platform. Overall, this is a modern, forward-thinking disc player."
