(Amsterdam--September 13, 2013) Panasonic Professional Camera Solutions and VidiGo announce the integration of Panasonic’s remote cameras with VidiGo Visual Radio. This exciting new partnership enables radio stations to fully automate their visual radio show. Both Panasonic and VidiGo will be presenting their integrated solution during IBC 2013.
Panasonic offers an extensive range of remote camera systems that offers superior HD and SD video production and communication. Its line of remote cameras
is characterised by an industry-leading blend of outstanding broadcast-quality video, smooth pan/tilt/zoom operation, and easy system configuration.
Visual Radio turns radio productions into an entertaining TV show or live stream and engages the audience in a whole new way. It’s a combination of automatic camera switching, dynamic digital video effects (DVE) and graphic overlays with real time updates and audio control. VidiGo Visual Radio collaborates with the existing radio production workflow and empowers the visual creativity of the host.
Panasonic IT Integration Product Manager, Markus Naegele, says to be pleased with this cooperation: “With this partnership, we expand our relationship with VidiGo. We have noticed a high demand for visual radio with integrated robotic cameras. This combination is also seeing increasingly more successful installations all over the world. Our partnership with VidiGo will help us expand into new markets with a high-end solution for radio stations.”
VidiGo CEO Hans Krouwels states: “VidiGo is extremely proud of the new partnership with Panasonic. The world of radio is changing rapidly and a new generation listeners expects high quality video. From a business perspective, radio stations are under pressure to perform at minimal costs. An efficient and automated production workflow with robotic cameras is the answer to all. VidiGo’s approach is unique; we offer a dedicated solution for the radio industry, with automated camera switching, integration of web-based graphics, social media and with all the standards of the high-end broadcast industry.”
