610 TV Stations Worldwide Adopt Panasonic's P2 Series Solid-State memory Video Recording System for Broadcasting.
Over 60,000 units shipped
As of the end of August 2007, the number of TV stations employing the Panasonic P2 Series solid-state memory recording system has grown to 610 worldwide. The total number of units shipped has exceeded 60,000.

Recently, the global popularity of large flat-screen TVs has encouraged the spread of high-definition broadcasting in many countries. America’s FOX Group has purchased large quantities of the P2HD, the high-definition models in the P2 Series, and has already launched their full-scale introduction. Sales in Asian countries are high as well, with a number of Chinese stations introducing the system ahead of next year’s Beijing Olympics, and major South Korean state broadcaster MBC (Munwha [Cultural] Broadcasting Corporation) recently deciding to adopt the P2HD series – the first time Panasonic broadcasting equipment has been adopted in South Korea.

The MXF (Material eXchange Format) employed by the P2HD Series is an open file format made available to our partner companies. In terms of nonlinear editing and network servers, Panasonic continues its ”open mind” policy of placing importance on compatibility with products from all manufacturers. In the process of developing the P2 system, Panasonic actively sought an open exchange of information with other companies. The compatibility of the P2 system with equipment from a variety of manufacturers continues to grow, with further growth expected in the foreseeable future.
