Panasonic has supplied the Serbian public TV broadcaster RTS with a professional system of studio cameras which consists of 30 sets of AK-HC5000GSJ cameras, with Camera Control Unit AK-UCU500ESJ, Remote Control Panel AK-HRP1000GJ and two models of viewfinders AK-HVF70GJ and AG-CVF15G.
Within the 2018 procurement plan, Radio Television of Serbia decided to renew their contingent of studio cameras, with the aim to fully broadcast in HD resolution out of all studios. In order to get the best possible equipment for this purpose, RTS issued a request for tenders for the procurement of 30 HD Camera chains.
Before making the decision, RTS received many offers from renowned studio camera manufacturers, such as Ikegami, Hitachi, Sony and Panasonic. In a tough competition, Panasonic met all the technical requirements and has given the best overall offer for the purchase of its cameras.
"With the installation of new Panasonic HD cameras, RTS will get a significant boost in image quality, which will contribute to the overall improvement of production. New Panasonic AK-HC5000GJS HD Studio Cameras achieve excellent image quality and superior efficiency, and they provide maximum value to our customers," says Srecko Kepic, Executive Director TV Technology RTS Serbia.
The AK-HC5000GSJ HD broadcast studio camera is equipped with newly developed 2/3 type MOS sensors, which provide a high-sensitivity and first-class signal-to-noise ratio. In addition to the DRS and CineGamma functions, the AK-HC5000 is equipped with new features such as Focus Assist, Flash Band Compensation and slant position reduction, which are implemented by high-speed displays of the MOS sensors.
In order to enhance the experience of the recording, AK-HC5000 provides some additional features, including enhanced Shockless Gain (-3dB to 36dB), custom Gamma settings, Black Gamma Correction Pedestal, multi-level digital noise reduction and easy matrix adjustment.
The AK-HC5000GSJ offers outstanding picture quality and usability. Complemented with camera control AK-UCU500, the camera can output 1080 / 60p, 240p images and deliver high-quality uncompressed transmission over long distances.
The AK-HRP1000 remote control panel has a color LCD and allows seamless control. Camera and camera control can be connected to each other and video signals can be transmitted over a distance of up to 2,000 meters when power is supplied from the camera control.
"For us, image quality is extremely important, it is a prerequisite", added Srecko Kepic. "However, the really decisive factor that led us to selecting Panasonic cameras was the availability of multiple additional features combined with the quality of product. The remote control, the numerous return channels and the fact that we can use the cameras in a variety of programs, such as news programs, talk shows and entertainment/art programs was substantive for us.”
