Panasonic revealed the first footage shot with its new AU-EVA1 5.7K handheld cinema camera at this year’s IBC.
Shot and directed by Italian DOP Filippo Chiesa on location in Iceland, the reel showcases the newly-designed Super-35 sensor with 5.7K resolution, as well as the dual native ISOs of 800 and 2,500. The camera ships at the end of October.
Panasonic was also touting several new technology collaborations at the show.
It announced a new development collaboration with Vislink and Videosys, which will see the first compatible wireless modules for its studio camera range, making it possible to remotely control the camera and transmit video over an HF band, using an external box with direct-docking on to the camera’s battery plates.
Panasonic announced an HDR update to its studio line-up which includes HDR support both in HD and 4K. From October, the existing HDR capabilities of the AK-UC3000 (4K) and AK-HC5000 (Full HD) studio camera as well as the AK-UB300 (4K) box camera, will be upgraded. The update will give 100% white clip, knee and black gamma adjustment and improved Viewfinder adjustment in order to provide an improved HDR shooting experience.
In live production, Panasonic announced a partnership with MOVICOM to develop a 4K-ready pan-tilt head – a companion to the UB300 box camera. It has a carbon-fibre design, alongside SDI, fibre and Ethernet connectivity, as well as a smooth pan-tilt head.
Also, Panasonic and Antelope signed a European distribution contract for Antelope’s next generation micro-cameras, The Antelope PICO and the Antelope ULTRA.
Panasonic has also signed an exclusive distribution agreement with AR+, and are now able to offer and support unique robotic systems across Europe. Panasonic has also agreed a collaboration with TECNOPOINT for rail camera systems that work with the AW-HE130 remote cameras.
In switchers, Panasonic introduced the AV-HLC100 live production centre, which natively supports NDI. The all-in-one, software based system, is capable of mixing IP and SDI sources, whilst recording, mixing audio, adding graphics and streaming to the internet using RTMP and NDI. There was also a new high end switcher, the AV-HS7300, available next year.
