Panasonic used NAB 2016 to significantly expand its studio camera line-up, with the announcement of immediate availability for the AK-UC3000 4K system, and the AK-HC5000, which outputs 1080p at 240fps.

The single MOS sensor AK-UC3000 outputs a UHD signal at up to 50p, while also delivering superior picture quality in HD. The camera’s B4 mount accommodates a full range of 2/3-inch lenses, to maximise return on investment in existing lenses.


Panasonic has announced an expansion to its professional 4K camera line up with the launch of two cost effective, high-power zoom, integrated lens camcorders.

Successors to the company’s AVCCAM series of professional AVCHD camcorders, the UX premium model (AG-UX180), is equipped with a 1-type MOS sensor, optical 20x zoom and UHD 60p recording capability, while the UX standard model (AG-UX90), features a 1-type MOS sensor, optical 15x zoom and UHD 30p recording.


Panasonic will use NAB 2016 to demonstrate the results of a collaboration with Canon Inc., on a proposed Video Over IP (VoIP) solution, using the newly-developed VoIP gateway for 4K and HD.

VoIP is a technology for transmitting high-definition video over IP networks in nearly real-time, sufficient for seamless video switching. Panasonic has been collaborating on VoIP trials in anticipation of 4K/60p transmission.


The Panasonic AK-UC3000 has been used by MEDIAPRO for the first live 4K broadcast of the Barcelona vs Real Madrid ‘El Clasico’ match.

One of the biggest club matches in world football, El Clasico is broadcast in 170 countries, with an estimated audience of 600 million viewers. MEDIAPRO deployed more than 300 professionals and seven OB trucks, one of them equipped with eight Panasonic 4K cameras, for the live 4K broadcast.
