4K Studio Camera System with High Sensitivity

4K Studio Camera System with High Sensitivity

Panasonic Corporation has developed the AK-UC3300GJ/UC3300GSJ, a 4K Studio Camera with high video quality equipped with a large 4K sensor. It is scheduled for release in the fourth quarter, 2020.

Panasonic Develops 4K Studio Camera System with High Sensitivity, Low Noise and Excellent Color Reproduction Achieves Horizontal and Vertical Resolution of 2,000 TV Lines

The AK-UC3300GJ/UC3300GSJ is equipped with a large 11-megapixel 4K image sensor and uses oversampling to achieve a horizontal and vertical resolution of 2,000 TV lines. With high sensitivity of F10 (2,000 lx), it enables high-quality video shooting with low noise while maintaining a S/N ratio of 62 dB or higher.

4K and HD multiformat support including 2160/59.94p and 1080/59.94p is provided to enable operation that fits various production application. The interface significantly improves the operability of 4K video production and supports 12G-SDI output*1 capable of sending uncompressed 4K video with a single coaxial cable, TICO*2 over SDI (4K over 3G-SDI) output*1, which enables the transmission of 4K signals over conventional 3G-SDI cables, and the next-generation IP transmission standard SMPTE ST2110.

The new Remote Operation Panel (ROP) AK-HRP1015GJ on top of current AK-HRP1000GJ, which offers excellent operability, and the high-resolution 1.78 cm (0.7 inches) Full HD OLED Color Viewfinder AJ-CVF70GJ, which supports comfortable, high-quality on-site shooting, have also been developed as part of the camera system.

In addition to shooting in studios, the 4K Studio Camera system contributes to optimal video production in dynamic environments with flexible support for various applications, including in situations that require high operability such as live broadcasting of events.

Panasonic will continue to develop and expand its studio camera portfolio and provide new value that can support the people working at studios and online live events to create a better life and a better world for its customers.

* This unit does not support Build-up Units. When using box lenses, a lens supporter from the lens manufacturer is required.
