Panasonic Corporation of North America Introduces 4K Ultra HD 3MOS Camera

Panasonic Corporation of North America announced the release of its Ultra HD remote head camera series GP-UH532, for use with surgical microscopes. The GP-UH532 camera will be available in March 2016 and will be fully compliant with the IEC60601-1 medical safety standard. The GP-UH532 camera will be the next generation of the company’s current 1080p HD camera, the GP-US932X series, which was released in 2013. The GP-US932X series is used for various applications which require high color reproduction and high resolution and where a very small profile is beneficial. The new GP-UH532 boasts ultra-high 4K resolution (3840 x 2160), smooth-moving 60p picture and high color reproduction to company's original 3MOS technology and newly developed video processing engine. The new camera will be on display at MEDICA/COMPAMED 2015 in Dusseldorf, Germany from November 16-19, and at the American Academy of Ophthalmology Annual Meeting in Las Vegas from November 14, 2015 to November 17, 2015. Main features of the GP-UH532 camera include: High color reproduction by 3MOS and newly developed video process engine: The accurate color rendition and the high color dynamic range are achieved by processing the respective three primary colors through the three dedicated RGB sensors in the 3MOS system. Since each pixel has all three-color components (R, G, B), the camera produces outstanding faithful color reproduction. High resolution and smooth motion picture by 4K60P: 4K (UHD: 3840 x 2160) pictures can be sent by the HDMI 2.0 and 3G-SDIx4 outputs. In addition, 4K and FHD pictures can be output simultaneously, so existing equipment like FHD monitors and recorders can be used, allowing a smooth transition from existing environments to 4K.

Panasonic to Showcase Comprehensive Portfolio of QSR Tech Solutions at FSTEC 2015

Panasonic announced that it will showcase its new back office software, Clearview by Panasonic, for the Quick-Service Restaurant (QSR) market at FSTEC in Washington D.C. (booth #501). Purpose built for the quick-service food industry, Clearview by Panasonic is a highly flexible and scalable web-based solution for financial management, food cost management, and labor management. Clearview integrates seamlessly with multiple POS systems, accounting packages, payroll vendors, and suppliers to create a sophisticated yet easy-to-use consolidated dashboard for complex multi-unit operations. The solution is used by thousands of restaurants to optimize and automate food orders, cash management, scheduling, financial tracking, reporting, and much more, maximizing profits from every dollar earned and providing unprecedented business insight for multi-unit operators and franchisors at both individual store and aggregate levels. The company will also be showcasing a number of other technology at FSTEC including: Rugged Tablet and Mobile POS Solutions: As the EMV mandate approaches next month, requiring operators to implement chip-and-pin technology or face fraud liability, Panasonic developed the Toughpad® FZ-R1, first 7” all-in-one mobile POS tablet running Windows 8.1 for line busting and tableside ordering while providing secure transaction capabilities. With its integrated EMV reader with PIN pad, encrypted mag stripe reader and NFC compatibility, the Intel®-based Toughpad FZ-R1 can handle all forms of electronic payment, giving operators and their customers’ confidence that financial data is secure. Panasonic will also be demoing a number of other purpose-built tablet solutions for line busting, tableside ordering and workforce management. Rugged tablets, such as the 10.1” Toughpad FZ-G1 enable restaurant managers to come out of the back office and onto the restaurant floor, increasing ROI and productivity. Fixed Point-of-Sale Solutions: The company will also highlight its latest POS workstation, the Stingray III. This enterprise-grade POS device features an all-in-one flexible, modular design, and is compatible with a variety of Microsoft Windows operating systems. The Stingray III’s versatile design features interchangeable touchscreens, allowing easy customization to meet individual retailer requirements with unlimited mounting options. Drive Thru Solutions: In an effort to increase efficiencies and sales in the drive-thru, Panasonic developed the fully-integrated Digital Drive-Thru. The solution combines scalable weatherproof, glare-resistant outdoor displays with outdoor mounting, integrated audio and video capabilities, including a built-in order confirmation screen eliminating the need for a separate, standalone unit. The Digital Drive-Thru creates a platform for digital marketing and real-time promotions, unifies menu management and improves the overall customer experience. Panasonic QSR Indoor Digital Signage Solutions: Panasonic also offers indoor digital signage solutions for QSR applications, including menu boards, greeter boards, promotional signage, private network displays and self-service food ordering kiosks. These complete solutions include displays, media players, content creation, remote monitoring and content management, as well as installation and service. Panasonic digital signage provides rapid, measurable ROI, while reducing costs, driving higher ticket sales and improving the customer experience inside the restaurant. Security and Management Solutions: The company will showcase its Virtual Site Manager, an integrated solution designed to provide remote store management from anywhere with the click of a mouse or tap on a tablet PC screen. Combining the power of video surveillance technology with point-of-sale systems, the solution pairs recorded video footage with transactional data, giving operators critical insight that can improve store operations, reduce loss and bring incremental revenue. In addition to preventing shrinkage, video analytics can provide invaluable data that can be used to streamline procedures, enhance marketing efforts and inform merchandising strategy. With just a few clicks, operators can verify and control inventory, view traffic volume and patterns and confirm employee training.

Panasonic Unveils Smart Coding Technology to Reduce Video Surveillance Bandwidth and Storage

Panasonic has released Smart Coding, a new technology that enhances the encoding algorithm in standard H.264 video streams, yielding up to a 70% improvement in bandwidth reduction. Available as a firmware upgrade to all new generation Panasonic 3, 5 and 6 Series Models, the technology effectively lessens the bandwidth demand and the amount of storage needed for surveillance video images while maintaining high picture quality and full compliance with the H.264 standard. Smart Coding technology employs a variety of advanced noise reduction processes and algorithm advancements, including Frequency Divided Filter (FDF); 3-D Multi-Process Noise Reduction (3D-MNR) and Group of Picture (GOP) Control to achieve a lower bit rate for images without degrading the captured and transmitted video stream. More specifically, FDF and 3D-MNR act to reduce both fine picture noise and video-grain generated under low illumination improving picture quality before compression. GOP Control removes unnecessary information in a scene which results in a lower bit rate. Together, these features can effectively provide a substantial bit rate reduction (the number of bits per second that can be transmitted along a digital network) in the recorded video without a loss in image quality.
