Panasonic will introduce a 4K version of its Varicam at NAB next month.
The camera, which was unveiled as a prototype at NAB back in 2012, incorporates a newly-developed super 35mm MOS image sensor.
Another 2/3” Varicam that features high-speed 1080p image capture of up to 240fps will also be launched in Las Vegas.
Both new Varicam models have separate camera heads which dock with the recording module, enabling users to switch between super 35mm and 2/3”.
They also include Panasonic’s AVC-Ultra family of advanced video codecs.
Panasonic System Communications Company of North America Product Manager Steve Cooperman said: “Building on the esteemed Varicam legacy of breath taking image rendition and versatile off-speed effects, this next-generation modular design will deliver unprecedented flexibility to users, who can move between the worlds of sports, documentary, and other content creation with extraordinary ease and efficiencies.”
