Panasonic and LiveU Announce Further Collaboration



LiveUIn today’s connected world where many people and organization want to stream their video live. One of the problems that must be dealt with is trying to watch how the transmission is running plus maintaining the quality of the streaming video, while still shooting the video. This requires at least two people, something that small operations cannot afford. This is the problem that LiveU and Panasonic is trying to solve with the announcement to cooperate on using LU40I video uplink and the AJ-HPX600 P2 camcorder. The LU40I video uplink will integrate with the camcorder’s interface. It will give the camera operator a real-time look at the transmission and video quality. The camera operator can manage video uplink while continuing to shoot. Allowing a one man crew to transmit high quality live videos over the Internet.

Michael Bergeron, Business Development Manager for Panasonic System Communications Company of North America (PSCNA) “When the operation of the LU40i is integrated with the camera, the complete system provides a high-quality video feed with the easiest remote operation yet.”

This is a continuation of the cooperation between LiveU and Panasonic which began at IBC in Amsterdam last September. Where they agreed to collaborate on HD 3D live mobile broadcast over cellular networks.

Samuel Wasserman, LiveU’s CEO, said, “We’re thrilled that Panasonic, a world-leading camera developer and manufacturer, has partnered with LiveU to develop this next-generation camera uplink solution using our cellular-based technology. We are confident that ‘live cameras’ symbolize the future for broadcasting and online media, and will open up new market segments for live video transmission around the world.”

Further details are expected when the AJ-HPXL600 launches.

3D TV Specs Not Compatible



I read this article over at Home Cinema Choice and despaired.  Despite being based on the same technology,  the 3D specs used by Samsung and Panasonic aren’t compatible….unless you wear them upside down.

What were they thinking?  And why couldn’t someone have simply picked up the phone and said, “Hey guys, what way round are you doing your 3D glasses?”

This could be as big as Blu-ray v HD-DVD all over again, with Sony going for one eye and Toshiba going for the other.  Not.

I’d be wary of any new technology until they have time to sort the bugs out, but frankly, you couldn’t make this stuff up.
