New Software-Based Media Production Suite Unveiled

News Image
Panasonic Connect Europe has announced its new software-based Media Production Suite to consolidate PC software for Panasonic's professional camera systems into one convenient platform.

It provides access to multiple functions on a single GUI screen for highly intuitive and efficient on-site video production. The Media Production Suite, available free of charge, also offers various paid plug-ins that will continue to be expanded in the future.

With the use of video increasing in the academic and corporate world, the new Media Production Suite streamlines camera setup and provides a wide range of features to enable high-quality video production with small teams. An intuitive touch-based GUI screen makes operation easy, enabling high-quality video production by non-specialist personnel.

The fundamental functions of Device View and PTZ Control are included in the Media Production Suite free of charge. Additional paid for plug-ins include Video Mixer, Visual Preset and Auto Tracking.

The Device View feature centralises the management of multiple PTZ cameras from a single PC, including camera network settings, status checks and power. It automatically detects all connected cameras to simultaneously implement network settings and firmware upgrades from a PC for efficient network-wide video management.

With PTZ Control users can adjust camera pan, tilt and zoom as well as focus, iris, gain, white balance, shutter and ND filter while viewing video output from a PC. It accepts up to 100 presets for smart operation.

A wide range of paid plug-ins can also be added to the platform to meet specific needs, such as auto-tracking for accurate tracking using facial recognition and body detection to follow unexpected movements for fluid automated video capture.

The soon to be added Video Mixer plug-in will leverage AI technology with the AI Keying function to eliminate the need for a green background when composing backgrounds, even when shooting outdoors. It supports P-in-P processing, automatic video switching linked to microphone, plus SDI, NDI®* and SRT input/output.

Lastly, Visual Presets allows users to simply click an icon to point multiple PTZ cameras at a subject for multi-angle productions. It’s also possible to link a PTZ camera and a Panasonic wireless microphone to automate video capture of speakers, for example at hybrid conferences.

The Media Production Suite is available immediately and is being demonstrated at the Panasonic stand in the Corporate Production Studio at ISE 2024 in Barcelona.
