Panasonic has announced its new AK-PLV100GJ 4K PL-Mount studio camera, which was designed to help productions make their content more exciting and engaging.

The AK-PLV100GJ features a Super 35mm 5.7K MOS sensor and PL mount. It appears as though this is the same exact sensor that it used in the EVA-1. The camera is Panasonic’s answer for those productions shooting live and outside broadcast content who want to utilize PL lenses and larger sensor cameras.

IP-based live production without CCU

To support production studios moving towards more connected, IP-based workflows, the camera features SMPTE ST 2110 compatibility. This enables a more streamlined connection to the KAIROS IT/IP platform (released in May 2020).

SMPTE ST 2110 input/output will be possible directly from the AK-PLV100GJ camera head without connecting to a CCU, enabling IP-based live production with just the camera, and doing away with the need for complicated systems. It’s also possible to output 12G-SDI signals directly from the camera head, allowing for flexible system construction and wide-ranging operations.

Camera head can be switched anytime

The camera head is fully compatible with the accessories for Panasonic’s 2/3-inch studio-camera line-up. You can replace the existing camera head with the AK-PLV100GJ.

Price & Availability
