Panasonic Adds To Camera Range

News Image
At ISE 2016, Panasonic has confirmed it is to expand its broadcast camera line-up, with the addition of the AK-HC5000 and the AK-UC3000. The studio cameras will be added to the broadcast range in spring 2016.

The AK-UC3000 is a 4K and HD camera offering new technology that allows the user to shoot in 4K. The cameras have excellent picture quality and superior sensitivity, but remain an affordable solution to help bring 4K shooting to a wider range of customers and help with 4K adoption.

The company's range of visual system solutions are on display at ISE 2016, and are complemented by auto tracking and control assist solutions, as well as the AW-UE70, a professional 4K integrated PTZ camera.

Auto tracking is a software based solution which can seamlessly track a person in a conference or lecture hall, while control assist is an application which allows a remote camera to be controlled on a tablet, so the user can wirelessly move, zoom and focus on different people. Both make it easier to produce meetings, lectures and seminars without expert support. Both applications are compatible with the AW-UE70 4K remote camera, which delivers UHD images at 25p via HDMI. It is also capable of 4K-streaming and in-camera 4K recording.

Guilhem Krier, Head of Product Marketing Europe for Broadcast&ProAV at Panasonic, said: "The UE70 is the perfect camera for System Integrators. In addition to IP remote control, video streaming, SDI output and Genlock, the camera is equipped with PoE+ (Power over Ethernet), so it can be fully operated and powered with a single CAT5 cable."

Also at the show, the company announced its collaboration with Analog Way.

Franck Facon, Marketing and Communications Director at Analog Way, said: "Analog Way is pleased to announce that the Ascender 48 4K seamless switcher along with the Vertige remote controller can now integrate with Panasonic's camera solutions. A system comprising Panasonic's leading PTZ camera technology and Analog Way's superior image processing, switching and control can now be combined to form a single, turnkey system."
