BFE and Uzbekistan’s NRTV choose Panasonic for refurbishment project
Panasonic cameras have been selected for the equipment refresh, with a total of 42 AK-UC3000 4K studio cameras for use at NRTV’s broadcasting centre, regional studios and outside broadcast vehicles, alongside 15 AJ-PX270 handheld ENG cameras.
The project will see 34 Panasonic AK-HRP1000 remote control panels installed, as well as another 8 AJ-PX5000 cameras used in the building of two new news studios. Systems integrator BFE also supplied 34 AG-PX380GF and 25 AG-PX800GF P2HD cameras, for footage gathering outside of the studio.
As a central, state-owned broadcaster, NRTV operates 14 national and 12 regional channels with headquarters in Uzbekistan's capital city Tashkent.
The project includes replacing SD technology with IP-TV technology in the central control room, creating a modern HDTV/IP production environment. 100 editorial work stations will be connected to the central archive which will be upgraded with an LTO robotic tape system and a MAM system, connecting the 12 regional studios.
