​Slow Motion Replay from Panasonic and Slomo.TV

Slomo.tv will showcase the Super Slo-mo bundle, a so-called cost-effective slow motion replay system combining a video server with Panasonic’s AK-HC5000 4X SuperMotion camera.

The solution integrates Slomo.tv’s new Simple RII 8-channel video recording and replay server with the camera. This integrated system is compact (1U, 5.6 Kg) and offers 3G/HD/SD image quality.

Panasonic’s AK-HC5000 studio camera enables 4x SuperMotion image capture, and can shoot HD images at 200/240 frames per second. This camera is equipped with 2/3-type MOS sensors that produce high sensitivity. There are also functions to improve the shooting experience; including HDR (HLG), enhanced shock less gain (-3 dB to 36 dB), a user gamma function, black gamma correction according to the pedestal setting, multi-step DNR and easy matrix adjustment. 

In developing its Simple RII server, Slomo.tv has added a special mode in its replay systems for integration with high-end cameras. This server-based system can record video in its native standard (1920 50p/60p or 50i/60i) with simultaneous replay of two clips with transition between them. Also, clip search and NLE marking is available during playback.

The Simple RII server can record up to 266 hours of 100MBit HD video. Also, it possesses three graphics outputs for GUI, Multiviewer and Game Analyzer functions.

Russian sports broadcaster TVStart has tested it on a broad spectrum of live broadcasts including football matches, KHL Hockey League, volleyball and handball events across Europe.

“Our first test of the Panasonic AK-HC5000 with Slomo.tv’s new Simple RII server was during the Euro Cup Handball qualification and it fully convinced us that this combination is very well matched to our needs despite its modest price,” explained the Chief producer of TVSTART, Vladimir Shirokov. “It gives us the flexibility we need for live sports broadcasting. It leads us to buy more Panasonic gear and we will employ Slomo.tv servers, which we have used for many years.”
