The AK-PLV100 4K PL mount studio camera carries on the legacy of VariCam with a cinematic look, V-LOG and Dual Native ISO, and streamlines multicamera live shooting to deliver another purpose built studio camera for easy CINELIVE production. The AK-PLV100 35mm Cine Live Studio Camera: Panasonic Connect has been a pioneer of cine live technology and will bring this expertise to its AK studio camera lineup with the release of the AK-PLV100 studio camera. It is equipped with a large format, super 35mm Imager and PL Lens mount to accommodate cinema lenses for a shallow-depth look. The AK-PLV100 is a fully-enabled system camera, and is compatible with the AK-HCU250 and AK-UCU600 camera control units, making it a companion to existing B4 mount camera systems. To capture cinematic video, simply swap the existing camera head with the AK-PLV100. The camera also leverages Panasonic Connect’s expertise in IP-based live production. It outputs 12G-SDI signals from the camera head and can interface with return, control and other communications directly, or through ST 2110 when used without a CCU. For multicamera productions, the AK-PLV100 can also be used simultaneously with the AW-UE160 - which has the toolset to create a more unified look – to capture a variety of angles & shots for a more interesting & compelling production. With this combination of features, the AK-PLV100 gives media and entertainment professionals flexibility & control, that doesn’t sacrifice production quality.
