4K PL-mount Studio Camera with Shallow Depth of Field for Live Cinematic Video

Large Format Sensor with PL-mount for Capturing Expressive Video

This 4K studio camera from Panasonic is equipped with a 5.7K Super 35mm sensor and PL-mount, inheriting the design concept of our iconic VariCam camera, allowing for powerfully expressive live cinematic video closer to your intention – thanks to a shallow depth of field.

Simple IP-based Live Production without CCU

SMPTE ST 2110 input/output is possible directly from the AK-PLV100GSJ camera head without connecting to a CCU,* enabling IP-based live production with just the camera, removing complicated systems from the equation. Also, a 12G-SDI can be output directly from the camera head, allowing for flexible system construction and a wide array of use.

  • * Future support planned

Switch Camera Heads on the Fly to Capture Every Moment

AK-PLV100GSJ is fully compatible with equipment in Panasonic’s extensive 2/3-inch studio camera system. Simply replace the existing camera head with the AK-PLV100GSJ and create cinematic video with the existing CCU (AK-UCU600 or AK-HCU250).
