Panasonic launches PX-5100 HDR-ready ENG Camera

Panasonic announces the latest in the PX5000-series with a new B4 shoulder-mount camera. The AJ-PX5100 is targeted at network news, documentary, high-end corporate and sports production. With the same HD 2/3in 3 MOS sensors in a lightweight 3.4kg body, the new camera also offers HDR(HLG) and 1080P50/60p recording for the first time in a Panasonic ENG camera.

Panasonic has improved the connectivity of the new camera with RTMP low-latency communication as a standard . The AJ-PX5100 also features wireless and wired connectivity with Wi-Fi, USB and Gigabit Ethernet, as well as bonding with both the LiveU and TVU networks. It means the camera can deliver smooth streams and transmit information between the camera and news room more quickly than before, speeding up news workflows.

The camera records 1080P50/60 AVC-Intra or AVC-LongG with dual codec recording of AVC-Proxy. It can output SDR while acquiring HDR. The camera features a 1.56 Mpxl LCD monitor for improved visibility.
