James Boner (L) of the Bridgeton (N.J.) Board of Education, gets the scoop on the Panasonic AJ-PX270 camera from Yusuke Ota of Panasonic. It was hard to miss Panasonic’s GV Expo 2014 booth, being right near the main entrance and displaying an alluring array of equipment. Attendees could be seen around the booth (and at the coffee urns that Panasonic graciously provided behind the booth) all through the first day of the show.

Panasonic’s new cameras were one of the highlights, including the AW-HE130 pan-tilt-zoom camera, the AJ-PX270 P2/streaming camera and two versions of the company’s new Varicam model. Early on, James Boner of the Bridgeton Board of Education in N.J., expressed an interest in the PX270 camera and asked a booth staffer about its streaming capabilities.

“I usually buy Panasonic stuff because I love the quality,” Boner said after his PX270 demo.

Rick Turner, Panasonic’s northeast sales manager, explained that the Varicam HS has three 2/3-inch sensors and can record HD at frame rates up to 240 fps.

“The Naval Academy is coming to take a look at [the Varicam HS] for their sports applications,” Turner said.

The company’s AW-HE130 PTZ camera features the ability to have four simultaneous streams at different resolutions, and can be powered and controlled over an Ethernet cable.

As for the show, Turner said that the Panasonic booth had been busy.

“It’s been a nice steady flow,” he said.
