Panasonic's studio video system has a high share among Japanese broadcasters [0 min 30 sec]
Panasonic's studio video system has captured 50% share of Japan's HD studio sub system market. Live switchers play a key role among all the equipment installed. The video introduces the 2ME live switcher, AV-HS6000, which will be available in the market come March 2014. In addition to excellent visibility and operability, it also features 34 inputs (SDI x 32/DVI x 2) and a redundant power source. You will also see shot of the prototype 4ME live switcher, AV-HS7300.
Cloud workflow will bring innovative change to both "on location" and "on air" [0 min 28 sec]
Next, the video introduces Panasonic's cloud workflow, which will significantly speed up both "on location" and "on air" processes. This workflow takes advantage of Panasonic's new memory card camera recorder, AJ-PX5000, to record both high and low bit rates simultaneously. What's more, the low bit rate recording will be automatically uploaded to the cloud server, so the team back at the broadcasting station can begin editing the footage without waiting for the media to arrive. There are high hopes that this solution will bring innovative change to journalistic production.
Network compatible archive solution pushes efficiency to a new level[2 min 46 sec]
As a network compatible archive solution, Panasonic proposed a Professional Archive System, which converts old VTR content into files and enters them into a database. Moreover, the Media Asset Management System centrally controls old and new content alike, thereby improving efficiency.
The ever-expanding 4K World[3 min 19 sec]
4K products also drew much attention. Panasonic showcased the 4K VARICAM (prototype), which enables true 4K-production and also announced that it is currently developing the ULTRA P2 card, which will feature both higher speed and capacity in comparison to current P2 cards. In addition, 4K LCD monitors and 4K tablet PCs were also exhibited. These products well represented that Panasonic's 4K World continues to expand.
