4K Opinions & Interviews

Panasonic Talks 4K Lineup with a Number of 4K Cameras on Show for the First Time in Europe at IBC

Interview Image

Nela Pertl, Marketing Manager EMEA at Panasonic, talks Video over IP, 4K and more at IBC 2016.

Q What are some upcoming/popular trends from the world of broadcast and content creation that you think might make a big impact at the show?

A Alongside IP, 4K is still a huge talking point and every manufacturer is updating their camera, switching and recording equipment to accommodate the super-high resolution format, which will only speed up adoption across the industry. At Panasonic our 4K range is going beyond the traditional production cameras and in to other formats, such as studio and remote cameras. The increasing capability of network connections and processing power has meant Video over IP is becoming a crucial part of many news workflows. Again this has seen manufacturers updating their hardware to add IP capabilities, and Panasonic is fully committed to seeing out the full transition to VOIP over the next few years.

Richard Henkels Shoots 4K on the Canon Cinema EOS C500 & EOS 1D C to Bring Author: The JT Leroy Story to Life

Interview Image

Documentary cinematographer, Richard Henkels, answers a few questions about work on his newest film, AUTHOR: THE JT LEROY STORY. The documentary that explores the greatest literary hoax of all time – when “it boy” wunderkid and Hollywood favorite JT LeRoy was unmasked as the creative expression of 40-year-old phone-sex operator turned housewife, Laura Albert. Richard shot the film in 4K on the Canon Cinema EOS C500 and the EOS 1D C.

Q How did you determine you would use the Canon Cinema EOS C500 and the EOS 1D C?

A The director Jeff Fuelzig and I really like Canon's look of how the sensor records color and contrast! Both cameras match perfectly in look. It was extremely convenient to have the 1DC on hand when we weren't all crewed up. It's a simple but powerful DSLR that records internally at 4K. This allowed us to do pick ups without a full camera package.

Q What are you working on next?

A I'm currently working on an Ebay commercial and am waiting for my next film project to kick in!
