In a statement the firms said that Avid’s unique splicing capability of AVC Ultra-LongG streams is an industry first and allows for changes to be made to existing sequences without requiring a full re-encode upon playout or consolidation.

Executive vice president of cinema and broadcasting in Panasonic’s Imaging Network Business Division Kunihiko Miyagi said: “This seamless integration with the Avid MediaCentral Platform means customers can safely replace old camera inventory without risking interruption to well-established operational practices.”

Alan Hoff, vice president, Market Solutions at Avid, added: “What this means for our broadcast customers is dedicated support for the industry formats that they use everyday.

“By integrating AVC Ultra-LongG into the Avid MediaCentral Platform we can also provide the most efficient, high performance news workflow available today.”
