System Cameras

Camera Control Unit (CCU)

  • Tajimi Connector Model


  • LEMO Connector Model


Supports simultaneous UHD/HD output and high-speed*1 HD shooting.

The CCU supports not only UHD and HD simultaneous output, but also enables high-speed output*1 up to 240p in HD mode to be performed simultaneously with standard (1x) output, while still having a compact size.

  • Contains a dual UHD 12G-SDI system, and supports 3G-SDI quad link with quadrant or two-sample interleave.
  • Optical fiber transmission of uncompressed video signals over a distance of approx. 2,000 m between camera and CCU*2.
  • The compact, lightweight unit measures 2U in height and is rack-mountable.
  • Supports IP streaming (100 Base-T).
  • SD memory card can be used for saving user files and updating firmware versions.
  • Dual uncompressed12G-SDI output.
  • Supports TICO*3 over SDI (4K over 3G-SDI) output (4K signal can be transferred by a conventional 3G-SDI cable).
  • Supports 1080p/i and 720p. In addition to standard output, high-speed output*1 at 2x, 3x*4 or 4x*4 can be selected according to the specifications of the server.
  • Supports HDR/SDR simultaneous output and HDR BT.2020/BT.709 simultaneous output.
  • 12G-SDI output and TICO*3 over SDI (4K over 3G-SDI) output are compatible with the AK-UC3000.
  • *1: When in HD Hi-Speed mode
  • *2: When power is supplied from CCU.
  • *3: A codec developed by intoPIX. Stands for “Tiny Codec”.
  • *4: Only compatible with AK-UC4000.

As part of a program run by the Joint Taskforce on Networked Media (JT-NM), Panasonic's IP/12G/3G Interface Kit AK-NP600G has received JT-NM tested badge for the international media transmission standard SMPTE ST 2110 and the control/management standards AMWA NMOS IS-04,05, both of which are shown in the EBU Pyramid’s technological requirements.
