Panasonic’s AG-HPX600 can now have LiveU’s video uplink technology integrated in the camera to make it easier to stream live news or events.
HPX600 users will have to download a software upgrade key (AG-SFU603G – a paid upgrade of about £215), which will allow them to incorporate LiveU’s LU40 portable lightweight uplink system into the camcorder.
The LU40 and the HPX600 are connected via SDI and USB, and live camera video can be transmitted through up to six bonded WiFi, 3G and 4G cellular connections via the LU40. The upgrade will allow users to start and stop the uplink from the camera, while the LU40 status will be displayed on the HPX600’s viewfinder.
Panasonic hopes to work with other uplink companies to offer similar features on a wide range of uplink systems.
