IMT Vislink partners with Panasonic for IBC

Vislink claims that its upgraded HCAM 4K UHD wireless transmitter/ULRA platform improves latency to 1 frame.

IMT Vislink has joined hands with Panasonic this year for IBC. The show marks the first time this partnership, which pairs IMT Vislink’s external wireless HCAM camera system with the Panasonic studio camera range, will be on display. In addition, IMT Vislink is debuting its upgraded HCAM/ULRA platform. The latest HCAM transmitter improves latency to 1 frame on all formats, including 4K UHD.

With its recently announced software upgrade, Panasonic’s AK-UC4000 will include the capability for 4K output via one of the 12G-SDI outputs from the camera head. When combined with the updated IMT Vislink HCAM transmitter, the AK-UC3000, AK-HC5000 and AK-UC4000 will all allow full HD wireless video transmission, with 4K transmission using the UC3000 and UC4000.

“As a worldwide leader in the development of broadcast and studio wireless camera technologies, IMT Vislink is honoured to be able to collaborate with Panasonic to bring this product to the market,” commented Dean Chettra, Global Channel Manager at IMT Vislink.

“By joining together IMT Vislink’s recently updated HCAM wireless camera system with the latest firmware for Panasonic’s studio cameras, we are enabling an end-to-end video capture, transmission and receiving workflow for various broadcast applications.”
