Magna Signs Reseller Partnership with Panasonic Connect

Magna Systems has announced a partnership agreement to represent and sell Panasonic Connect products in Australia.

Magna Systems & Engineering group CEO, Matthew Clemesha, said, “Panasonic Connect are a manufacturer with a reputation for quality that is second to none. We see great opportunities for their products, particularly in the broadcast, AV and house of worship markets across Australia. This new partnership is a perfect fit for Magna, our clients and the industries we work within.”

As a result of the new agreement, Magna’s focus will be centred around Panasonic’s Kairos IT/IP Platform, AW-UE160K 4K integrated camera, 4K studio cameras and the Panapod elevation unit.

The Kairos IT/IP platform is a live video production platform which incorporates proprietary, software to maximise the CPU and GPU capacities for video processing. The next-generation Kairos Core 200 and Kairos Core 2000 mainframes offer significantly improved functionality and performance, including many more inputs and outputs, improved video-processing performance and enhanced file-storage capacity, allowing the use of far more sources than ever before for the creation of compelling and complex effects.

Combining a system camera with a PTZ Camera, the newly released AW-UE160 is part of Panasonic’s professional PTZ camera lineup. It supports return input and high-speed output, and is also the first to support the ST-2110 standard, JPEG XS and 5G mobile router (USB tethering compatible). It is compatible with a wide range of protocols and I/Fs.

Panasonic’s 4K studio cameras are designed to provide high video quality. Compatible with a 2/3 lens mount and with a newly developed large 4.4K sensor these cameras offer the high video quality of a large sensor, along with a wide range of 4K acquisition with the latest functions such as HDR (HLG), BT.2020 and high-speed shooting.

The Panapod is an elevation unit specifically designed for Panasonic PTZ cameras. The elevation unit can be used as a standalone system on a stage, in a studio, behind a goal, in a conference venue, or in a press conference to provide an unobtrusive camera position that is great for the spectators whilst not interfering with the artists, players’ action, presenters or the sequence being shot.

Panasonic Connect Product Marketing Manager – Professional Video Mathew Alexander said, “Magna have the experience, the team, the reach and the reputation that all perfectly complement Panasonic products and our approach. Our companies work well together and as a result, we see great benefits for the broadcast and AV markets.”
