Panasonic Connect announces next generation of Kairos at ISE 2023
GTC Sponsor, Panasonic Connect Europe announces the next generation of KAIROS, its state-of-the-art live production platform, and provided an advanced preview to visitors at ISE 2023, in Barcelona, Spain.
Ideal for productions ranging from broadcast studios to remote production and streaming of live sports and concert events, KAIROS virtualises traditional switcher functions eliminating many legacy switcher hardware constraints with innovative CPU/GPU architecture and utilises a multi-format Agile I/O feature to remove the one-to-one input constraints of SDI only switchers.
The current entry level KC100 delivers a more flexible platform to support productions that might utilise a 3ME broadcast switcher and the KC1000 doubles that processing capacity for bigger and more complex displays. The latest versions add two new KAIROS Core mainframes, the AT-KC200 and AT-KC2000.
The new KC200 expands connectivity options and processing power beyond the KC100, and the KC2000 offers the most capacity yet, doubling the KC1000 for number of sources and outputs, increasing processing performance by minimum 30% and clip player capacity by 500% totaling 900GB.
Both new Cores will be available in 2023 and the associated new software will deliver many new features and increased functionality, including enhanced audio support, 3rd party alliance integrations, deeper system log support and GUI operational improvements.
Andre Meterian, Director of Professional Video Systems for Panasonic Connect Europe, says:
This latest generation takes KAIROS to the next level and further underlines our commitment to continue to expand its already broad range of functionality for the benefit of our broadcast and media users, as well as the rental and staging market with advances such as improved quietness. KAIROS is the ideal solution for those looking to move to a next-generation IT/IP centric platform for unlimited production creativity, regardless of format or content destination.
To see a preview of the latest KAIROS generation platform, visit Panasonic at Booth 3J500 of ISE 2023.
