Panasonic Connect Releases Update to KAIROS Software


Panasonic Connect North America has released KAIROS Version 1.3.2 system software, delivering a host of new features and functionality to the KAIROS production and eSports platform. The free software upgrade for KAIROS customers features access to RossTalk protocol integration, via the AT-SFE01 RossTalk activation key (MSRP $3,300), enabling control of Ross XPression real-time graphics software directly from the KAIROS platform.

The latest software upgrade provides operators with increased visibility over their production network, additional access to system log data and added redundancy capabilities for enhanced control and system integrity. The latest upgrade includes two new redundancy functions, including KAIROS Core redundancy management for mainframe backups, and ST-2022-7 redundancy for networks (KC1000 only) to support the most complex, fast-paced productions. With the upgrade, operators have increased access to system and operational log data, so they can easily monitor the status of the network and quickly resolve any issues.

KAIROS leverages a server-class CPU/GPU architecture, eliminating the restrictions of legacy FPGA/Firmware systems and enabling live video processing and switching, regardless of resolution and format, while natively supporting the transition to live IP and cloud workflows with simultaneous SDI, ST 2110 and streaming support.
