The Panasonic Live Production Streaming Switcher Controller and PTZ Camera Controller is well suited for use in a variety of environments including live events, education, live musical performances, and lectures. It supports ten channels of video and can simultaneously accept input from SDI, HDMI, and NDI/IP. Supporting up to 12 audio channels, the switcher can use the audio embedded in digital video, as well as from analog audio, and even the microphone input.
Still image capture is available at the push of a button on the console. The T-bar (transition bar) is pretty much a given on a switcher panel, offering you manual control over transitions. The built-in joystick works in conjunction with the panel's built-in PTZ controls. The NDI input and output options make this board suitable for live streaming as well as IP recording.
- Tele/Wide zooming can be done with the seesaw switch similar to what you would find on a camera. This is found on the left of the control panel.
- Iris and Focus adjustment can be performed by individual dials, while position control such as PTZ camera, PiP, or Title can be assigned to the 3D joystick at the top right
