AK-PLV100: Key features, workflows and applications

The AK-PLV100GJ 4K studio camera, designed to help production teams make their content more exciting and engaging.

Large Format Sensor and PL Mount for Various Expression

With a Super 35mm 5.7K MOS sensor and PL mount, inherited from the VariCam camera, Panasonic is bringing its pioneering experience of cine live technology to its studio camera line-up - enabling powerfully expressive video with a shallow depth of field to bring it closer to the director’s intention.

Simple 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 more streamlined connection to the KAIROS IT/IP platform (released in May 2020), which gives professionals unlimited control to deliver rich content to multiple screens and streams.  

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, 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. By simply replacing the existing camera head with the AK-PLV100GJ, cinematic video can be created with the existing CCU (AK-UCU600 or AK-HCU250).

AK-UCU700 series

4K CCU with Enhanced IP Connectivity,Including Support for ST 2110, The Industry’s First*1 Dante®, NDI®*4 and SRT.  The AK-UCU700 CCU supports the next-generation SMPTE ST 2110*2 IP-transmission standard as well as JPEG-XS to uncompress/compress 4K video by a factor of 10 without degrading quality. As the industry's first*1 studio camera system to support the Dante®*3 network audio standard as well as the NDI®*4 (High Bandwidth NDI®*4 ) and SRT (Secure Reliable Transport)*5 IP transmission standards, Panasonic Connect's new CCU realizes diverse networks and applications for IP studio camera systems. 

Remote Unit / Controller


With the AK-UCU600 Camera Control Unit (CCU), uncompressed longdistance transmission of 4K/HD video signals via optical fiber is supported. The AK-HRP1000GJ/1005GJ Remote Operation Panels (ROP) are equipped with a color LCD display that provides excellent visibility and functions for quick response. This system achieves high-quality video and excellent operability. In cases where power is supplied by the CCU, it is possible to transmit at a long distance of up to approx. 2,000 m between the camera and the CCU. The distance can be extended up to 10,000 m by providing a local power supply at the camera head and using general-purpose single mode optical fiber. Between the CCU and the ROP, in addition to a dedicated serial line, IP connection via LAN cable is also supported.
