The AK-PLV100GJ 4K studio camera, designed to help production teams make their content more exciting and engaging.


Large Format Sensor and PL Mount for Various Expression

With a Super 35mm 5.7K MOS sensor and PL mount, inherited from the VariCam camera, Panasonic is bringing its pioneering experience of cine live technology to its studio camera line-up - enabling powerfully expressive video with a shallow depth of field to bring it closer to the director’s intention.


Simple IP-based live production without CCU

To support production studios moving towards more connected, IP-based workflows, the camera features SMPTE ST 2110 compatibility. This enables more streamlined connection to the KAIROS IT/IP platform (released in May 2020), which gives professionals unlimited control to deliver rich content to multiple screens and streams.  

SMPTE ST 2110 input/output will be possible directly from the AK-PLV100GJ camera head without connecting to a CCU*, enabling IP-based live production with just the camera, doing away with the need for complicated systems. It’s also possible to output 12G-SDI signals directly from the camera head, allowing for flexible system construction and wide-ranging operations.


Camera head can be switched anytime

The camera head is fully compatible with the accessories for Panasonic’s 2/3-inch studio-camera line-up. By simply replacing the existing camera head with the AK-PLV100GJ, cinematic video can be created with the existing CCU (AK-UCU600 or AK-HCU250).
