Panasonic Broadcast Equipment at BVE North

Manchester-Based Holdan Exhibiting New Panasonic Broadcast Line Up At BVE North, Manchester Central Arena, Stand 230 from Today

Holdan will demonstrate some of the very latest Panasonic products launched at IBC 2011 at BVE North which opens today. As the official Panasonic distributor, Holdan will show for the first time in the UK the HDC-Z10000, the world's first integrated twin-lens 2D/3D camcorder compatible with the AVCHD 3D / Progressive standard. The new camcorder provides broadcast image quality for 2D and 3D filming, manual control for professional use, auto stereoscopic 3D LCD display and uncompromising audio quality.

Featuring Panasonic’s unique double 3MOS sensor system for recording Full-HD 2D and 3D images, HDC-Z10000 delivers an effective pixel count of 6.57 megapixels for superb colour and detail reproduction.  The two large-diameter F1.5 lenses independently mounted on the left and right are treated with Nano Surface Coating, for the first time on a camcorder, significantly reducing ghosting and flare to produce crisp, clear image rendering.

Also on show will be P2 model AG-HPX250, the first 10 bit hand-held model to feature the AVC-Intra 100 codec and the eagerly awaited Panasonic AG-AC130 and AG-AC160 AVCCAM camcorders will première at the show.  Both the AC130 and 160 cameras feature a 22x zoom, dual SD cards for relay or simultaneous recording and exceptional low light recording capabilities and deliver the quality and flexibility professional video makers demand.


On the booth cameras will feed the brand new professional plasma monitors from Panasonic including the highly specified and competitively priced BT-300 series. Both the 42” and 50” screens are graded for use in film and TV in 2D and stereoscopic production environments.

In conjunction with Emap, Holdan is offering an HDC-Z10000 prize for the best short film submitted to the organisers. Allan Leonhardsen of Holdan UK commented; "A professional show coming so quickly after IBC is an ideal opportunity for our Northern customers to see the latest equipment to hit the market. Having so much new technology on show will make it a really exciting event."
