“But outside of traditional broadcasters, the move towards high quality video has been a phenomenon that shows no sign of slowing down. For corporate users, YouTubers and freelance news journalists, two microP2 cards mean simultaneous broadcast and proxy video transmission to a cloud server from almost anywhere.”

The AJ-PX270 is available from the end March 2014 at an RRP of € 5.840,00 (excl. VAT).
