PANASONIC TO INTRODUCE THE AW-HE60S/H AND AW-HE2 NEW HD INTEGRATED CAMERAS
The AW-HE60S and AW-HE60H are the first cameras to be capable of IP image monitoring. This industry first IP image output function allows IP images to be transmitted to up to 14 terminals per camera. Both models are equipped with a 1/3 type Full-HD MOS sensor and 18x optical zoom lense. The cameras can also output multiple HD/SD format signals. They incorporate the dynamic range stretch (DRS) function to minimise saturation in highlights and blocking in dark areas and the hybrid digital noise reduction (Hybrid DNR) function suppresses afterimages even in dimly lit environment. Both cameras are also equipped with an infrared "Night mode" for shooting at night or in dark places. They also have mechanisms to allow the panning of ±175 degrees and tilting between 90 and -30 degrees. Up to 100 AW-HE60S and HE60H cameras can also be remotely controlled in serial mode from the specially designed remote control panel (AW-RP50). The AW-HE60S and AW-HE60H will be available in December 2012 at RRPs of €4,620 and €3,360 (excluding VAT) respectively.
Alternatively, the other option that will be available on the market in December 2012 is the AW-HE2, which is a low-cost HD integrated model that incorporates a 1/2.33 type, 14-megapixel MOS sensor and ultra-high resolution technology to achieve approximately 2x "iA" zoom". Image cropping functions on the camera enable electronic pan/tilt/zoom controls. The camera can be remotely operated from a special remote control panel (AW-RP50), features HDMI terminals and can output multiple HD/SD format signals supporting the Full-HD progressive output (1080p). The AW-HE2 will be available in December 2012 at a RRP of less than €900 (excluding VAT).
PANASONIC TO INTRODUCE THE AK-HC3800 NEW STUDIO CAMERA
The AK-HC3800 studio EFP camera exhibits outstanding cost effectiveness in terms of both operability and controllability. This camera ensure high-quality images are produced, with a high-sensitivity 2/3 type 2.2-mega pixel IT 3CCD and a newly developed 38 bit DSP (internal video processing circuit) with 16 bit A/D converter. It incorporates various image quality adjustment functions, such as a chromatic aberration compensation (CAC), scene file settings and a dynamic range stretch (DRS). With the camera control unit (CCU), AK-HCU200, combined with the remote operation panel (ROP), AK-HRP200G, a high-grade uncompressed optical fiber transmission camera control system can be configured at low cost. An IP connection with a LAN cable can also be supported. Moreover, a small and lightweight 17.8 cm (7 inches) LCD viewfinder, the AK-HVF70G, will be also be available soon. This simple and compact system supports high-end quality studio and EFP image recording. The AK-HC3800, AK-HCU200, AK-HRP200G and AK-HVF70G will be available in December 2012 at a RRP of €60,000 (excluding VAT) collectively.
PANASONIC TO ANNOUNCE LIVEU ENABLED AG-HPX600
After having first announced their collaboration at IBC 2011, Panasonic Professional Camera Solutions and LiveU, the pioneer of portable video-over-cellular solutions, are now taking the next step. Both companies will be unveiling the LU40 enabled AJ-HPX600 P2 camcorder, one of Panasonic’s new future-proof models. Thanks to the highly innovative LU40 video uplink device, the solution offers live video uplink capabilities and the LU40 can be linked via the camera’s interface, giving camera operators a real-time indication of LiveU’s transmission status and video transmission quality. This makes it a must-have for a remote crew. The LiveU enabled AG-HPX600 is scheduled for release at the end of September at a RRP of €13,800 (excluding VAT).
