Panasonic has validated the Matrox Monarch Edge D4 decoder with its AW-UE100 and AW-UE150 professional PTZ cameras for 4K remote production (REMI) workflows. Panasonic completed interop testing over public networks of its top-of-the-line PTZ cameras with the Monarch Edge D4 decoder, providing video professionals with a broader range of remote production opportunities.

Featuring built-in encoding and SRT streaming protocol support, AW-UE100 and AW-UE150 4K/HD PTZ cameras can transmit a secure 4K/UHD 60p/50p camera feed to a Monarch Edge D4 decoder, which converts the SRT stream to a genlocked 12G-SDI signal for integration within an SDI workflow.

Multi-4K camera productions can incorporate additional Monarch Edge D4 decoders and pair a decoder with each Panasonic camera, with genlock support for each stream. For 4:2:2 10-bit workflows, broadcasters can introduce Monarch Edge E4 encoders to capture and stream Panasonic 12G-SDI outputs to Monarch Edge D4 decoders.

“Panasonic has an array of products that support SRT for live streaming, from PTZ cameras, to camcorders, to the Kairos IT/IP video processing platform. Our PTZ cameras team well with the Matrox Monarch Edge products to provide a REMI solution for reliable video delivery with the SRT protocol, even on unstable of networks,” said Jim Jensen, senior category owner, Remote Systems Professional Imaging, Panasonic.

“Remote productions come in various shapes and sizes, and our collaboration with Panasonic means broadcasters can now fulfil a wider range of 4K REMI workflows, especially over public networks,” said Daniel Maloney, technical marketing manager at Matrox Video. “As broadcasters look to integrate and cover a broader range of remote events, the Panasonic camera and Monarch Edge combination ensures the highest-quality 4K productions and viewing experiences.”
