(Amsterdam, IBC 2014--September 12, 2014) Panasonic has added a 4K, broadcast quality, micro camera to its range of ultra-compact Industrial Medical Vision camera heads.
The new camera head offers 4K imaging through an incredibly compact camera head (27 x 30 x 42mm) and opens up 4K broadcasting in testing settings such as nature documentaries, which require discreet and compact recording equipment.
Featuring a 1/3’ 3MOS imaging sensor the camera allows brilliant colour reproduction with low power consumption. Low-light shooting is also capable due to the high sensitivity, F8~9 camera head which has a signal to noise (S/N) ratio of 54db.
Panasonic Product Manager, Patrick Linder, said, “Whether it’s providing striking footage or miniscule technical detail, the new camera head makes it possible to shoot in ultra-high definition in previously unreachable locations. It goes to show that bigger isn’t always better.”
Beyond broadcasting, the small but powerful 4K camera head is appropriate for a number of medical and industrial applications as well.
