Panasonic Entertainment & Communication Releases Delivery of KAIROS for Broadcast Controllers in Collaboration with KAIROS Alliance Partners

KAIROS Alliance Partners Expanded to Approximately 50 Companies

Osaka, Japan – Panasonic Entertainment & Communication Co., Ltd. is pleased to announce that, in collaboration with KAIROS Alliance Partners, the IT/IP platform KAIROS, which supports live production for broadcasters, is being delivered to customers worldwide.

The KAIROS open-architecture is characterized by easy linkage with external devices and third-party systems. For this reason, Panasonic has consistently collaborated with manufacturers and suppliers in the IT and video industries to expand and integrate KAIROS' systems and respond to the latest technologies to support the video production of customers in the broadcast and video industries.

For example, Broadcast Control System (BCS) will be able to promote the automation of operations and contribute to the efficiency of the entire system and, ultimately, broadcasting operations. KAIROS is collaborating with leading BCS vendors and their system, Evertz’s MAGNUM-OS, EVS' Cerebrum and LAWO’s VSM Broadcast Control System and has been delivered to a total of seven projects worldwide (Japan: 1 broadcaster, Europe: 3 broadcasters, USA: 1 sports management company, 1 event company, and 1 financial company).

In addition, by 2024, more than 50 manufacturers and suppliers are KAIROS Alliance Partners, collaborating on various aspects of the production ecosystem.

In commenting on working with Panasonic, KAIROS Alliance Partners said;

“Drastic is a natural fit with the KAIROS ecosystem. We provide ISO recording, Edit While Capture and Live Replay in native 2110 to complement KAIROS' world-class live switching capabilities.”


“We are delighted to become a KAIROS Alliance Partner,” said Andreas Hilmer, Chief Marketing Officer at LAWO. “Like us, Panasonic is committed to providing broadcast and ProAV customers with maximum reliability, quality, and flexibility based on open technologies such as SMPTE ST 2110. The seamless interoperability between KAIROS and LAWO’s audio and video IO, processing, monitoring, management and VSM control solutions is a perfect example of delivering operational and commercial benefits to our joint customers.”


“The KAIROS platform is an impressive content creator ecosystem with ability to mix a variety of AV over IP sources including SMPTE ST 2110,” explains Tod Musgrave, Sr. Broadcast BDM at NETGEAR, “so we engaged Panasonic as soon as our M4350 models with ST 2110 were ready for interop testing to ensure easier integration by mutual customers”.


“Collaboration is in the DNA and essential as our industry accelerates towards wider adoption of cloud and web technologies. Our graphics are one part of any live production workflow so working with partners is fundamental. The KAIROS IT ecosystem is a perfect example of where partners can leverage each other’s strengths for the benefit of customers, and we are delighted to join the other partners in the KAIROS IT ecosystem.”

“We are pleased to announce that KAIROS were delivered customers with BCS, and we have added four new companies as our KAIROS alliance partner,” said Kageyuki (Kenny) Fujimoto, lead manager of KAIROS Alliance Partners. “We believe that bringing together industry leaders to create a single, integrated production environment simplifies installation and operation for creatives who rely on KAIROS to create dynamic, fresh content on a daily basis around the world.”

KAIROS' latest product, the mainframe Kairos Core 200 AT-KC200L1, will be exhibited at the “2024 NAB Show” to be held in Las Vegas, USA from April 14 to April 17, 2024 (local time) at our booth.
