Panasonic will show its solid-state acquisition system, a host of cameras and VTRs, a new switcher and several display products at this year’s IBC conference.
Part of Panasonic's solid-state production efforts at the show is devoted to a demonstration of how the new workflow operates from camera acquisition to archiving.
At its technology suite, Panasonic will show the system using SD memory card technology. The system has four SD cards packed into a standard PCMCIA card, which can slot into a laptop for instant nonlinear editing.
The AW-E655 ½ inch IT-type 3 CCD camera is portable and comes with a motor drive optical filter.
Other key product developments for the show include:
