PRESS RELEASE

Panasonic Delivers New 4K and High-Speed 1080P Studio Cameras

LAS VEGAS, NV 04/18/2016

Panasonic is significantly expanding its studio camera offerings with the immediate availability of the AK-UC3000 4K system, and the AK-HC5000, with output of up to 1080p at 239.76p.

Targeted at studios and productions requiring high-end functionality at an affordable price, the UC3000 is equipped with a large, full-UHD resolution single MOS sensor with an internal conversion lens that outputs a UHD signal up to 3840/2160/59.94p, while also delivering superior picture quality in HD. The camera’s B4 mount accommodates the gamut of existing 2/3-inch lenses to maximize customers’ return on their investment in existing lenses, and allowing a wider and more economical choice of glass for sports, concerts and similar applications. The UC3000 also enables shooting with high sensitivity (F10/2000lx), low noise (S/N 60dB+), high resolution (1800 TV lines/UHD) and a wide dynamic range of 600%(-6dB~36dB).

The UC3000 boasts new and innovative functions that enhance the camera’s ease-of-use and flexibility. These include Advanced Focus Assist Functions, shockless Gain (-6~36dB), a User Gamma setting, Black Gamma Correction tracking pedestal, and multi-step Digital Noise Reduction (DNR). The camera reduces skew using a high-speed scan from the MOS sensor. Dynamic Range Stretch (DRS in HD Mode) reduces the blocked shadows and blown highlights in scenes where extremely bright and dark objects coexist, and CAC compensates for chromatic aberration at the lens periphery. High Dynamic Range (HDR) will be supported with a future firmware update.

Output formats of the UC3000 (with UCU500) include HD (3G-SDI): 1080/59.94p,50p,59.94i,50i, 29.97psF, 25psF,23.98psF, 23.98p over 59.94i, 720/59.94p,50p, in 4K outputs include 4K (3G-SDI×4): 3840x2160/59.94p, 50p, 29.97p, 25p and 23.98P, and  in SD, 480/59.94i and 576/50i.
