Latest Panasonic cameras in the frame at BVE8 January 2012
Products on show will include the AG-AF101EJ, the compact camera designed to enable straightforward production of ‘cinema-like’ footage in HD.
The AG-AF101 4/3 HD camcorder is described as the world’s first professional HD camera recorder to come equipped with a four-thirds MOS image sensor and is the first model in the Panasonic AVCCAM series to offer the possibility of exchangeable lenses. Optimised for high-definition video recording, the large image sensor on the AF101 enables professional users to achieve cinema-like wide-angle footage with shallow depth of field.
Also on show at the Panasonic stand will be the P2 format AG-HPX250EJ, the first 10 bit hand-held model to feature the AVC-Intra 100 codec. The specification includes progressive-compatible ULT (Ultra Luminance Technology), 1/3-type 2.2-megapixel 3MOS sensor and 22x zoom lens with wide coverage from wide-angle to telephoto.
In addition, Panasonic will showcase its AG-AC130EJ and AG-AC160EJ AVCCAM camcorders, as well as new professional plasma monitors like the BT-300 series.
“BVE will provide the platform for us to show off our latest kit and will include demonstrations of the Panasonic broadcast technology that is being used in the London 2012 Olympic Games, such as DVCPROHD, the official recording format for London 2012,” commented UK marketing executive Becky Green.
In addition, official Panasonic distributor Holdan will demonstrate a variety of Panasonic products on its own stand, including the HDC-Z10000, the first integrated twin-lens 2D/3D camcorder compatible with the AVCHD 3D/Progressive standard.
