Panasonic Adopts IPMX for AV-over-IP in Future PTZ Cameras

Connect PS

Panasonic Connect announced its partnership with intoPIX regarding the integration of its JPEG XS technology in its PTZ and studio cameras. The company made the strategic move to JPEG XS technology by adopting the intoPIX TicoXS IP cores, which will allow their camera line-up to interface directly with live production workflows supporting SMPTE ST 2110 and IPMX standards. This is a huge boost to IPMX as the proposed AV-over-IP standard.

Panasonic Connect recently launched its new flagship AW-UE160W/K PTZ camera and its new AK-PLV100GSJ 4K studio camera, both of which will support JPEG XS. With its high sensitivity capability of F14/2,000 lx that is equivalent to that of a studio camera, the AW-UE160W/K can be used together with studio cameras to add more flexibility to video content production. Equipped with a large format, super 35mm imager and PL lens mount, the AK-PLV100GSJ offers a shallow-depth look that enhances creativity in broadcasting and streaming events.

Using JPEG XS safeguards all advantages of an uncompressed stream such as ultra-low latency and high quality and offers a significant bandwidth reduction with real-time FPGA, CPU or GPU-based encoding in HD, 4K. Moreover, it can be used in any LAN, WAN or cloud-based IP-based application which is sensitive to low latency and high quality. Powered by the shooting feature set of the AW-UE160W/K and the AK-PLV100GSJ, this clearly provides ideal IP video production workflow for applications such as live TV production and live events.
