Panasonic Presents 4K Outlook at NAB 2014
Panasonic will also use NAB to present the next generation of P2 solid-state recording media - the expressP2 card. Specifically designed to accommodate 4K image capture, the expressP2 card offers fast transfer speeds (up to 2.4Gbps.), meaning an hour of 4K footage can be transferred within around ten minutes.
The expressP2 card AU-XP0256A contains a flash memory error correction system, equivalent to a RAID system, to recover from a failure in a sector, page, or entire block.
The simultaneous introduction of the expressP2 card drive (AU-XPD1) will facilitate the fast offload of material from the expressP2 card at speeds of up to 2.4Gbps.
Featuring an innovative modular design, the VariCam HS 2/3 type camera head docks with the AVC-ULTRA recording module, to provide the full functionality and ergonomics of a conventional production camera/recorder.
With high speed 1080p image capture of up to 240fps, the camera is aimed at the production of extraordinary high-definition imagery, for the most demanding documentaries, sports or SFX slow-motion applications.
Also making an appearance at NAB will be recently launched products AV-HS6000, a powerful, cost-effective 2 M/E switcher and the AJ-PX270, the company’s first P2 HD handheld camera recorder with AVC-ULTRA recording.
