The AV-HLC100 live production center is an AV production unit from Panasonic that allows for a high-quality, professional transmission to be enabled where there are a limited number of operators available, making it a suitable option for live-streams, conferencing facilities and event/staging facilities.

Combining the functionalities found with a 1ME switcher, PTZ camera controller and audio mixer into a single device, the AV-HLC100 makes it possible for a single person to operate all functionalities within a transmission.

For PTZ camera operation, both the connection and settings can be managed via the Easy-IP connection function whilst pan, tilt and zoom operations can be performed using the large joystick.

Output format support includes 1080/59.94p and 50p in addition to a cross-conversion functionality between 1080p and 720p. Flexible transmission can also be achieved through the ability to mix embedded, line-input and mic-input audio into the video.

The AV-HLC100 also supports both NDI|HX, RTMP and RTMPS network protocols, with the latter allowing direct transmission to be made into live streaming services such as YouTube Live for example.

With a full line-up of professional integrated cameras with built-in NDI|HX support now available, the introduction of the AV-HLC100 supports a complete live production system purely over IP with a single-cable workflow that enables very low latency video, audio, PTZ control, tally and power all over a single CAT5 cable.

Panasonic: 4K Handheld Camcorder Promises High Quality Images And Advanced Connectivity

Panasonic has introduced a new handheld camcorder, the first in a series set to combine advanced connectivity functionality with high end image production for broadcast and streaming applications. The AG-CX350 camcorder spearheads the series, and is the first camcorder in the industry to provide NDI | HX connectivity. This ensures smooth video transmission and camera control over IP for live events and web distribution, and means the camera can be built in to larger systems working alongside Panasonic PTZ camera systems equipped with NDI|HX and the Panasonic Live Production Center (AV-HLC100).

"The NAB Show is the world's largest convention encompassing the convergence of media, entertainment and technology. The general consensus was that despite the crowds around certain stands, attendance might have been lower than previous years. Wednesday and Thursday seemed quieter, so it will be interesting to see if this is proved when the attendance figures are released. You can read our show magazine at your leisure!"
