Panasonic Korea (www.panasonic.co.kr) took part in the 25th Korea International Broadcasting, Audio & Lighting Equipment Show (KOBA 2015), which ran May 19-22 at COEX.
The event presented various video broadcasting equipment and memory-card camera recorders, including the VariCam35.
The AVC-ULTRA, which Panasonic has adopted, is a high-satisfaction video compression codec based on H.264 and focuses heavily on compressibility and efficiency. With an option to choose between resolution and bit rate, it is flexible enough to give high performance in broadcasts to movies and 4K production to streaming.
The P2 Cam and P2 handheld cameras have high resolution and sensitivity with great operability. They ooze with high performance via the chromatic aberration correction function, the scan reverse function, and the dynamic stretch range option.
The highly anticipated gamma function produces tones similar to film. Digital supergains, variable frame rates, focus-assist functions, and user-defined buttons ensure user convenience.
They can record by using high-quality 24-bit 4-channel audio and two card slots. They also have various recording modes.
KOBA began in 1991 for the development of Korea’s broadcasting culture and video, audio, and lighting industries. This year, a total of 932 companies from 32 countries participated to present the next-gen broadcasting trend, of which 189 were Korean companies.
Over a hundred sessions under the event name “The International Broadcasting Technology Conference” were held at COEX Conference Center, on major topics such as 4K, UHD, smart technology, digital radio, and broadcasting technology and policies.
