Panasonic Wins Contract for Arbitrator Body-Worn Cameras from Rutgers University

Panasonic announced that it has been officially awarded a contract for Arbitrator Body-Worn Cameras (BWC) from Rutgers University. With the rollout scheduled for completion in 2016, officers are already patrolling campuses in Camden, New Brunswick, Piscataway and Newark with the equipment. In addition, the NJ cities of Long Branch, Asbury Park and Rutherford started to roll out Panasonic body-worn cameras this past summer. In South Carolina, the Greenville County Sheriff's Office is deploying 300 Arbitrator 360 in-car video systems. In May, the Huntsville, AL Police Department purchased 360 Panasonic Arbitrator Body-Worn Cameras. Each installation relies on Panasonic's advanced Unified Evidence Management Solution to ensure that video is easy to access when necessary.

Panasonic System Communications Company of North America Debuts Full HD Remote Head Camera for Use with Surgical Microscopes

Panasonic System Communications Company of North America announced the introduction of the Full HD Remote Head Camera GP-UH332. The Full HD Remote Head Camera system features include a small, lightweight 3MOS color head for high color performance, foot control and chemical-resistant coating. It meets safety standards (IEC60601-1) and the EMC standard (IEC60601-1-2). The camera will be available in October, 2016. Key features of the GP-UH332 include EX ZOOM Function: Unlike digital zoom, this camera's high image quality is preserved when zoomed in to generate more detail. Multiple-User Functionality: Up to six user files can be stored. Chemical-resistant coating: Cleaning with a disinfectant will not result in cracks or discoloration. Designed for medical environments: the camera is designed for easy, intuitive operation. Foot Switch Functionality: clinicians can maneuver the image without the use of hands. The new camera provides options to clinicians not ready to invest in a complete 4K imaging system. It can be coupled with either the FullHD Camera control Unit (GP-UH332C) or the 4K CCU (GP-UH532C). In March Panasonic debuted its 4K Ultra HD Remote Head Camera GP-UH532. Both cameras in the Panasonic lineup give surgeons in operating suites and remote locations the ability to see delicate procedures in rich detail. They are ideally suited to small spaces. By providing a Full HD system with a migration path to 4K, the company continues to meet the needs of its customers. Both the Full HD Remote Head Camera and the 4K Ultra HD Remote Head Camera will be on display at the Congress of Neurological Surgeons from Sept. 24-28 in San Diego and the American Academy of Ophthalmology Annual Meeting in Chicago from Oct. 14 -18 in Chicago.

Panasonic Releases New Firmware Update for VariCam LT Facilitating RAW Signal Output

Panasonic has announced a new firmware update for the VariCam LT that adds RAW signal output via two 3G-SDI terminals to an external RAW recorder at 4K or UHD 60p. The recorded CinemaDNG file is compatible with DaVinci Resolve 12.5.1, Drastic Media Reactor 5.04 and upcoming versions of major NLEs and grading systems. The upcoming firmware update of the RAW Bundle option for the Odyssey7Q+ and Odyssey7Q monitor/recorders, expected by the end of September 2016, will support VariCam LT RAW. The VariCam LT 4K cinema camcorder inherits the same super 35mm sensor and superb imaging capabilities that distinguish the award-winning VariCam 35, but with significant reductions in size, weight and price. The VariCam LT delivers 14+ stops of dynamic range with V-Log, and the es-teemed cinematic VariCam image quality and color science, as well as the VariCam 35's breakout innovation, dual native ISOs of 800/5000.
