Panasonic KAIROS IP/IT Video Processing Platform

CALL FOR PRICE

Panasonic KAIROS is an IT/IP platform which allows flexible system configuration and operation, delivering amazing video quality and productivity.

Panasonic KAIROS incorporates proprietary, ground-breaking software which maximizes CPU and GPU capabilities for video processing. This IP-centric platform offers true uncompressed video processing, uncompressed 4K inputs, Precision Time Protocol (PTP syncronisation) and full support of baseband and IP signals such as SDI, ST 2110 and NDI. KAIROS is a “level-type switcher” that surpasses conventional M/E type switches. With M/E-type switchers the number of keys installed in the row is limited. KAIROS is based on layer compositions like a non-linear editing tool.

KAIROS uses the GPU for the video processing, thus allowing flexible video production using multiple layers with unrestricted number of MEs or keys and the canvas screen is unrestricted by resolution or format. This system give the user a Custom Canvas for any size or shape display screen wall or ribbon.

Key Features:

  • Resolution and format independent
  • Utilizes latest technology in software and CPU/GPU processing
  • Simultaneous baseband, streaming, NDI & ST 2110
  • Platform offers low 1 frame latency processing
