Panasonic Connect has announced its latest 4K PL-mount studio camera, AK-PLV100GSJ, that features a 5.7K Super 35 mm sensor, offering shallow depth of field, and the 4K PTZ (pan-tilt-zoom) Camera, AW-UE160W/K, offering the functionality of a System Camera.

The new AK-PLV100GSJ is compatible with the AK-HCU250 and AK-UCU600 camera control units, while AW-UE160W/K is the industry-first SMPTE ST2110 compatible PTZ camera. The company has mentioned that it will offer an optional software key, the AW-SFU60, to activate SMPTE ST2110 for the AW-UE160 series.

Furthermore, the AK-PLV100GSJ leverages IP-based live production without CCU. The users can also create cinematic videos with the existing CCU (AK-UCU600 or AK-HCU250) by replacing the existing camera head with the AK-PLV100GSJ. The AW-UE160W/K delivers unique video effects and the latest functions, including immersive images.
