New Studio Cameras by Panasonic

Broadcast division of Panasonic Corporation has introduced a pair of new products: the new flagship in the AW-UE160 PTZ camera fleet and a high-end 4K studio camera AK-PLV100. The latter will bring a 4K S35 sensor and, unusually (for Panasonic's ecosystem of studio models with a B4 bayonet), a PL-mount. Installation model AW-UE160 also takes inspiration from Panasonic's film models and will offer, for example, the latest generation of image processing algorithms taken from the LUMIX series, including PDAF (phase detection autofocus) and hybrid image stabilization. Both innovations promise to support the SMPTE ST2110 IP standard and will be on sale during the first quarter of next year.
