Panasonic has revealed more details about a prototype 360-degree camera, first showcased at IBC, that the company says will be available from August

Comprising a camera head and base unit, the system uses four cameras to produce 360-degree video in uncompressed 4K with a 2:1 image format ratio (equi-rectangular video).

It includes a real-time, live active stitching feature and what the company describes as “super low latency”.

Panasonic has also announced details of a new addition to its outdoor remote camera range.

The Full HD, AW-HR140 is equipped with a 1/2.86-type 3MOS broadcast high-sensitivity sensor and is scheduled to go on sale in June 2017.  

The camera is resistent to water, dust, wind and severe salt damage and is equipped with a wiper. It also has a pan-tilt vibration compensation function called D.I.S.S. (Dynamic Image Stabilising System) that allows for installation in tough, outdoor environments without the need for a housing.

In addition, Panasonic is currently working on a new “small and light” cinema camera that it hopes to launch in the autumn.
