Tokyo, Japan (January 31, 2023) - Panasonic Connect Co., Ltd. unveiled today two next-generation Kairos Core mainframes, the AT-KC200 and AT-KC2000, as major new additions to the company's IT/IP platform "KAIROS" for professional live-video production and distribution. The unveiling took place at the Integrated Systems Europe (ISE) show being held in Barcelona, Spain starting from today.
The new mid-range AT-KC200 will be available from this June and the high-end AT-KC2000 will be available in the third quarter of CY2023.

The first generation of KAIROS mainframes, released in September 2020 and widely adopted by broadcasters and video distributors worldwide, set the standard for creative video production using IT software and IP-based remote operability.
In recent years, the Internet and smart devices have diversified video-viewing options, exploding the demand for video production, including live streaming. In response, Panasonic Connect will launch two next-generation KAIROS mainframes, both fully equipped for large-scale live and complex video production and designed for compatibility with evolving IT/IP infrastructure.

The AT-KC200 and AT-KC2000 both 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.

Panasonic Connect continues to steadily reinvent video production sites with its innovative IT/IP platform "KAIROS," helping video producers to richly and expressively convey all the emotion and excitement of special moments captured in time for audiences worldwide, and contributing to the realization of a sustainable society and to ensure well-being for all.

As an IT-based open-architecture platform, KAIROS allows users to synthesize as many scenes and layers as the GPU permits for expressive, low-latency production, free from the video-format and mix-effect limitations of conventional hardware. The IP-based interface flexibly handles diverse inputs and outputs, network transmission and remote production via the cloud. KAIROS enables professional live on-site broadcasting and distribution by small teams, without relay vehicles, and unconstrained by normal limits on remote resources as well as time and location.
