NAB 2012: Panasonic and LiveU partner

Panasonic and LiveU have collaborated to deliver an integrated camcorder and live video uplink solution, using the LU40i video uplink device (pictured) and the new AJ-HPX600 P2 camcorder with planned wireless integration features. The LU40i will be linked via the camera interface, giving camera operators a real-time indication of LiveU’s transmission status and video transmission quality. With the LU40i and HPX600, a camera operator will be able to manage the video uplink while shooting. Samuel Wasserman, LiveU’s CEO, said, “We’re thrilled that Panasonic, a world-leading camera developer and manufacturer, has partnered with LiveU to develop this next-generation camera uplink solution using our cellular-based technology. We are confident that ‘live cameras’ symbolise the future for broadcasting and online media, and will open up new market segments for live video transmission around the world.” Michael Bergeron, business development manager for Panasonic System Communications Company of North America (PSCNA), said, “We want to deliver solutions for our broadcast customers that evolve with the pace of new technology, and the upgradable HPX600 camcorder platform gives us the flexibility to do that. When the operation of the LU40i is integrated with the camera, the complete system provides a high-quality video feed with the easiest remote operation yet.”
