Panasonic cameras have been selected for the equipment refresh, with a total of 42 AK-UC3000 4K studio cameras for use at NRTV’s broadcasting centre, regional studios and outside broadcast vehicles, alongside 15 AJ-PX270 handheld ENG cameras. The project will see 34 Panasonic AK-HRP1000 remote control panels installed, as well as another 8 AJ-PX5000 cameras used in the building of two new news studios.
