Joint Meeting with SMPTE Detroit Section

Panasonic AVC-Ultra CODEC choices comprising both Intra and Inter
frame…yes, both. It sounds like a grandiose marketing ploy, however,
it’s very real. Jeff will present a summary of Panasonic’s CODEC direction
for the next ten to fifteen years. AVC-Ultra will figure in all of their
core products and also those of many NLE partners.

The AVC-Ultra codec family will include a wide range of capabilities, from
low-level AVC-Proxies to AVC-LongGop at 50 Mbps (and 10-bit, 4:2:2), to
the AVC-Intra recording at 10 and 50 Mbps, and then a high-end of 200
Mbps, 10-bit 4:2:2 recording and even 4:4:4 recording at 12-bit for master
recording needs.
