Lithuania LNK TV Adopts Panasonic P2 Technology

Panasonic PBITS have announced that LNK, Lithuania's largest independent broadcaster, has adopted Panasonic P2 technology for news and programme production.
LNK selected Panasonic P2 cameras and equipment following the adoption of P2 by Latvian Independent TV (LNT), TV5, PBK and Kanal 2 in Estonia. P2 cameras will be used for acquisition in news and productions for all four LNK channels: LNK, TV1, INFO and Liuks.
Riardas Kazlauskas, Technical Director of LNK, said: "P2 is the best solution for LNK for many reasons. Currently we are broadcasting analogue and DVB-T signals in standard definition, but we are going to completely switch to HD in 2012, when analogue terrestrial broadcasts will be discontinued. So, we have to start acquiring HD material immediately, to prepare for the upcoming HD era, and the HD capabilities of P2 cameras are excellent. Another important factor in favour of P2 technology is the improvement in speed of workflow. Our editing systems will provide advanced integration with P2 media, enabling MXF support and direct editing on P2 media at incredible speeds."
Jaume Rey, Director of PBITS Business Unit, said: "Over 600 broadcasters worldwide have now adopted P2 technology for tapeless production and broadcasters in the Baltic region have been quick to see the advantages of P2 in meeting the challenge of HD. The outstanding quality and performance of the technology will ensure that LNK is fully equipped for success in this new era of broadcasting."
