Panasonic Connect Announces Kairos Core 2000 New Series AT-KC2000S1

Enabled redundant operation with 4K 16 inputs/10 outputs

Product Name

Kairos Core 2000 (Main Frame)

Model No.


Release date

December 2023

Tokyo, JapanPanasonic Connect Co., Ltd. today announced the Kairos Core 2000 (Main Frame) new series, AT-KC2000S1, one of the KAIROS IT/IP platforms for professional live-video production and distribution. AT-KC2000S1 can support a flexible number of inputs and outputs to suit customers’ video production, which is a feature of KAIROS, while ensuring ST 2022-7 redundancy, which is important for broadcasting and event distribution using a network. This eliminates the concerns of customers who broadcast or live stream events and sports using a network and supports unlimited, more stable video production.

AT-KC2000S1 is a mainframe equipped with the same functions as the second-generation Kairos Core 2000 (AT-KC2000) announced in August of this year and can be used without halving the number of inputs and outputs when operating with redundancy. Therefore, desired video and materials are not limited to allow for potential network troubles.

About KAIROS IT/IP Platform

KAIROS has revolutionized video shooting, creation and projection processes for live production and distribution. 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.
