Panasonic Connect Releases Software Upgrade (V1.5.0) for KAIROS Core 200 Mainframe

Realizes more flexible and efficient video production
including support for newly developed touch control panel software

Tokyo, Japan Panasonic Connect Co., Ltd. today announced the July 21 release of a system software upgrade, Version 1.5.0, for its recently released Kairos Core 200 mainframe (AT-KC200), which pairs with the KAIROS IT/IP platform for professional live-video production and distribution. In particular, the V1.5.0 upgrade will enhance intuitive KAIROS operation via support for the new Touch Control Panel Software (AT-SFTC10)1 option, which will go on sale from June 30 for use with the Kairos Core 200 mainframe. The upgrade also adds extended functionality, including 4 outputs and 4K/HD simultaneous output for Multiviewer, multiple selection of clips, sources and objects in Kairos Creator, input/output video captured as clip videos on the RAM player or as still images, for more flexible video production in diverse operating and shooting environments.

The AT-SFTC10 software will enable intuitive operation of the Multiviewer screen on touch-panel PCs, including video selection, camera switching, clip playback and more, making it easy for anyone, even non-expert operators, to use KAIROS. It will also allow KAIROS to be operated from PCs that have not installed Kairos Creator. The AT-SFTC10 will be provided with a software key activated by entering a code.

The AT-KC200 is a second-generation mainframe in the KAIROS midrange lineup which offers significant improvements in video processing performance, internal storage capacity, reliability and stability. It is fully compatible with touch operation of the Multiviewer screen and other V1.5.0 features, for highly flexible video production.

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