Panasonic Business has provided Swiss broadcaster with 90 AG-UX180 camcorders with the aim of future-proofing their technology with 4K capability. With the arrival of 4K technology however, RTS wanted to turn to more advanced and future-proof products. With this shift in focus, the procurement process was relaunched and new products were tested, including Panasonic's AG-UX180 camcorder, which was ultimately selected.
"In addition to its attractive price, we chose the Panasonic Business AG-UX180 model for its encoding performance and optical capabilities. These 4K 60p/50p camcorders (model AG-UX180) feature the widest angle on the market (24mm), a 20x optical zoom and a 1.0 CMOS sensor," said Christophe Dumartin from Visuals Sarl.
Since September 2017, Panasonic has provided equipment to around 40 RTS stations. The teams, made up of 80 video reporters, have been able to test the new camcorders throughout French-speaking Switzerland, Valais, Geneva and Lausanne.
The AG-UX180 is the premium model in the UX range. Its top of the range specifications and professional features include advanced optical image stabilisation (O.I.S.) and intelligent AF functionality, making it ideal for high-end professional applications.
The controls of the AG-UX180, including its three manual control rings, user button and specific interfaces, such as the 3G-SDI/HDMI and XLR inputs, have been designed to meet the needs of professional video recording applications.
