• Panasonic @ NAB 2017

NAB 2017

Event Date: 
23 April 2017 to 26 April 2017


We are exhibiting at NAB 2017 from April 24th to April 27th at the Las Vegas Convention Center in Las Vegas, USA.

Come and visit us at booth #C3607 in the Central Hall N3! We are very much looking forward to seeing you there.

On the stand you can find the prototype 360 degree camera, first showcased at IBC, available from August this year. Comprising a camera head and base unit, the system uses four cameras to produce 360-degree video in uncompressed 4K with a 2:1 image format ratio (equi-rectangular video). Thanks to its real-time, live active stitching feature and super low latency, it achieves excellent picture reproduction equivalent to post-stitched content and is aimed at use in the live broadcast of sports, concerts and other stadium events.

We are also showing newest addition to our remote camera range. The Full HD, AW-HR140 is equipped with a 1/2.86-type 3MOS broadcast high-sensitivity sensor and is scheduled to go on sale in June 2017. The camera retains broadcast image quality with a level of robustness not previously seen in broadcast camera systems. Resistant to water, dust, wind and severe salt damage, the camera is equipped with a wiper as standard and has the industry’s first pan-tilt vibration compensation function D.I.S.S. (Dynamic Image Stabilising System). This allows for  installation in tough, outdoor environments without the need for a housing.

As well, you can get a first impression on the new cinema compact camera to enlarge our production line-up that will be coming in fall 2017. The model is small and light and aimed at recording on low-cost media. The official preview will be at Cinegear (beginning of June). 

Moreover, you can get to know further details on the AU-XPD3 expressP2 drive with ThunderboltTM 3 interface, which is scheduled to be launched in June 2017. Designed to maximise the data transfer performance of expressP2 cards for 4K video recording, the AU-XPD3 drive operates at approximately four times the speed of USB3.0. At ten Gbps, three hours of content recorded in AVC-Intra4K422 (4K/24p) onto a 512-GB expressP2 card can be offloaded in about seven minutes.                                 

We are strengthening our switcher line-up with the introduction of the AV-HLC100 live production centre. It combines a 1 ME switcher, remote camera controller and audio mixer functions while offering IP and traditional video inputs and outputs. The live production centre facilitates one-person operation, particularly useful for remote camera shooting to streaming workflows. It works directly with Panasonic PTZ and systems cameras, discovering and deploying them automatically using IP or via SDI. The switcher will launch in the US in Autumn, with availability in Europe likely in early 2018.

Finally, we can also officially announce our European distribution rights to the ARCAM by AR+. The exclusive agreement, which excludes France, will see the robotic camera system paired with our studio cameras, designed for news and sports studios, as well as concerts and entertainment shows and stop motion specialists.
