Panasonic looks to support IP transition with new camera control unit

The new AK-UCU700 series offers 4K and HDR operation as well as flexible IP migration of existing operation systems, said the company

Panasonic Connect Europe is introducing a new camera control unit (CCU) to support a wide range of IP migration paths for the company’s existing 4K studio camera systems.


The new AK-UCU700 series offers 4K and HDR operation, flexible IP migration of existing operation systems, easy migration from conventional CCU-based baseband systems, and a 3.5” LCD touch panel for easy operation, said the company.

Panasonic has also unveiled the AT-KC2000S1 mainframe for its Kairos platform, which can support a flexible number of inputs and outputs to suit customers’ video production, alongside ST 2022-7 redundancy for broadcasting and event distribution using a network. The new mainframe is ideal for customers broadcasting or live streaming events and sports using a network, and supports unlimited and more stable video production, added the company.

“Demand for hybrid video production is growing and viewing habits are rapidly diversifying,” said Andre Meterian, director of professional video systems for Panasonic Connect Europe. “It’s driving a need for the industry to support various resolutions and aspect ratios as well as simultaneous distribution to multiple media. These two latest IP-based systems help organisations transition to the new production reality and Panasonic Connect Europe is leading this charge.”
