Robotics Case Studies
Panasonic provides solutions that give you the freedom to focus on the content you’re creating and broadcasting, safe in the knowledge that the technology you’re using will deliver the performance you need. Our robotic camera systems are the perfect demonstration of this commitment.
Find out how Panasonic robotic camera systems have been employed in different environments and various applications.
4K-CAPABLE VIDEO PRODUCTION AND LIVE STREAMING FACILITY FOR THE VENUE GROUP
Panasonic 4K PTZ cameras and Tuning rail system allow Lafayette London to complete live relays and studio-style recordings from the venue.
ATG Danmon has completed a 4K television production and live streaming facility at the Lafayette London events centre. Commissioned by the Venue Group, the new system allows for live relay of stage performances as well as studio-style recording. Located close to the Regent’s Canal in the King’s Cross area of London, Lafayette is an industrial two floor auditorium with world class sound and light systems. It includes robotic cameras, an audio/video production control room and a floor-to-ceiling rack of auxiliary equipment.
How to realise an UHD Virtual Reality Studio End-to-End Workflow - RWE Campus
RWE decided to include a Virtual Reality (VR) studio when they created their new building on the RWE Campus in Essen, Germany. KST Moschkau GmbH created an UHD Virtual Reality Studio for this purpose that features four Panasonic AW-UE150 UHD PTZ cameras, the KST-CamBot-system and Zero Density’s Reality Enine.
RWE relies heavily on TV production automation as they do not employ professional studio personnel. This is one of the reasons why the KST-CamBot.system is used as the central automation unit as it can control the 4 PTZ cameras, the Panasonic AV-UHS500 4K live switcher as well as the virtual rendering technology Reality 2.9 from Zero Density among others.
The studio was created as an innovative audio-visual communication tool, to provide a groundbreaking level of quality in modern TV standards such as UHD. In addition to the actual VR studio, the control room and various additional positions, such as outside interview area, event rooms, OB van connection point, etc. were also designed to fit into their new concept.
The realisation of the studio started in April 2020 and went on air on July 1, 2020 with four on-air live productions. Currently, RWE uses the studio mostly for internal, company-wide communication, but is working on new production formats for press conferences, press releases, etc.
Panasonic's AW-UE150 is the first PTZ on the market to provide Position Data Notification (PTZF). Thanks to the adoption of the FreeD protocol, the AW-UE150 is compatible with Virtual Studios and Augmented Reality applications. Due to this feature, the AW-UE150 provides real-time positioning to the virtual Reality Engine™ from Zero Density.
While French students are confined to their homes due to the Covid-19 pandemic, France Télévisions has been mobilizing its channel since March 23, to support them in their schooling. In partnership with the Ministry of National Education and to respond to the “Learning Nation” mission, lessons were given by teachers, for all levels, as well as a variety of educational activities on the programme. The morning is devoted to the little ones, the afternoon to the older ones.
Trinity Broadcasting Network
Recently, TBN purchased 16 x AW-UE150 4K 60p integrated pan/tilt/zoom cameras, 7 x AW-RP150 camera controllers and Tecnopoint Tuning software, Totem telescopic column systems and motorized floor and ceiling dolly systems to equip new studio sets at its Tustin, CA and New York, NY facilities.
GROUNDBREAKING TV PRODUCTION TECHNOLOGY IMPLEMENTED BY THE GERMAN ARMED FORCES
Following a near three-month implementation, the first virtual reality studio of the German Armed Forces (Bundeswehr) was recently approved. KST GmbH implemented a highly-automated, 4K-capable studio facility that supports both VR and AR environments at ZOpKomBw, the Bundeswehr’s operational communications centre, located in the German town of Mayen.
