AVC Ultra Family
Panasonic’s AVC-ULTRA offers master-quality and/or low-bit-rate 10-bit, 4:2:2 recording in Full HD to meet a variety of user needs from mastering to transmission. AVC-LongG, designed for applications where file size is critical, offers up to 10-bit, 4:2:2 sampled recording in a much smaller file size, saving storage cost and transfer times over MPEG-2 while maintaining equal or better video quality. The PX5000G incorporates a selection of AVC-LongG quality levels, including AVC-LongG50 (10-bit, 4:2:2) and AVC-LongG25 (4:2:2, 10-bit).

The 2/3-inch, 2.2M 3-MOS camera combines superb image production, light weight and innovative expandability. The PX5000G is “future-proofed” to provide inventive functionality and improved workflows, with additional options such as wireless metadata input. PX5000G also features wireless and wired connection ability with Wi-Fi, USB and Gigabit Ethernet, including wireless control of key camera functions from a smart phone.
micro P2 Memory Card
Panasonic introduced the microP2 Card, the world's first UHS-II compliant Professional Memory Card1, ensuring higher efficiency, reliability and speed to the broadcasting workflows. It is a solid state recording media the size of a SD Memory Card made for broadcast use. This dramatically reduces the size and cost of the current P2 card, as this new Micro P2 card offers the same level of data capacity as well as higher transfer speed, superb reliability and excellent security. The simultaneous introduction of a microP2 Card Adapter assures that the new series of 64GB and 32GB microP2 cards will operate in current P2 hardware2. Panasonic also announced a two - slot microP2 drive for plug-and-play offload of content. Panasonic’s microP2 solid-state UHS-II compliant memory cards ensures highly reliable video, audio, and metadata recording, especially in challenging conditions of extreme temperature range, shock, and vibration. P2 cards allow professional users to benefit from a fast, easy, file-based workflow and exceptional reliability.
