Many broadcast manufacturers have set their sights on the smaller, individual podcaster-type broadcaster in recent months, and Panasonic is no different with its latest all-in-one solution. The AV-HLC100 Live Production Center combines a 1ME switcher, remote camera controller and audio mixer functions into a single solution that can be operated by a single person for applications such as live streaming. It therefore offers a simple upgrade path for HOWs with limited technical experience looking to expand their media footprint.

The HLC100 Center has been designed to work with Panasonic PTZ and systems cameras and can deploy and discover them automatically using IP video transport, although SDI may be used as well. In addition, it is stated to work with all NDI-capable video sources. Compatible cameras include AW-HE130, AW-HE40 and AW-UE70 PTZ devices, as well as AK-UC3000 and AK-HC5000 studio camera systems and the AK-UB300 4K Box Camera with streaming outputs.

For remote camera control, pan, tilt, zoom and focus operations can be performed with one hand with the HLC100 using the large joystick. Output format support includes 1080/59.94p and 50p, and there is also a cross conversion function. Smooth transmission can be achieved since it is possible to mix embedded, line-input and mic-input audio and add it to the video.

In addition to NDI input/output IP transmission, RTSP input and the RTMP network protocol are supported, enabling direct input of the IP video of Panasonic PTZ cameras and direct transmission to live streaming services such as Facebook or YouTube Live. Additional connectivity comes in the form of 3G-SDI (four video inputs, two video outputs) and an HDMI out for user interface.

The hardware panel is complemented with a software user interface that will enable Multiview monitoring, graphics overlay insertions, media players, audio mixers and more. According to Panasonic, the user interface focuses on ‘simplicity and quick and easy operation of advanced settings’.

For those simply seeking an upgrade to their switching capabilities rather than a complete all-in-one video control solution, the manufacturer has also announced the AV-HS7300 as the new flagship in its switchers line-up. The large-format model is 4K-ready and will support up to 72 inputs and 42 outputs.
