Panasonic enables 4K HDR workflow for Berlin Philharmonic
As part of the collaboration between Panasonic and Berlin Phil Media, Panasonic System Communications Company Europe (PSCEU) has planned and built a new UHD-HDR production facility at the Berliner Philharmonie, the home venue of the Berlin Philharmonic – the orchestra regularly hailed as the world’s finest.
Panasonic was supported in the process by the Munich-based systems integrator VIDEOCATION. One of the main challenges was the end-to-end hybrid (UHD-HDR and HD-SDR) production and distribution workflow. In addition to Panasonic studio cameras (AK-UC3000 and AK-UB300), a AV- HS6000 vision mixer is used in combination with a Utah router. Recording, post production and studio playout are handle by a Cinegy system.
The first concerts in UHD-HDR will be available from the orchestra’s ‘digital concert hall’ platform in October.
