Euskal Telebista settles on Panasonic P2HD for ENG operations

Euskal Telebista (EiTB), a Basque Country TV group in Spain, has selected Panasonic's P2HD format as the exclusive format for its electronic newsgathering (ENG) systems.

EiTB operates five TV channels and five radio channels, providing news and entertainment programming to viewers in the Basque Country and via satellite and cable to households across the rest of Europe and America.

EiTB’s ENG division will use the Panasonic AG-HVX200 handheld solid-state HD camcorder and AG-HPX500 Memory Card Camera-Recorder, as well as the P2 Mobile system for its OB van.

The AG-HVX200 HD camera supports multiple HD and SD formats and multiple recording modes and frame rates.

EiTB's ENG crews can select among recording modes from 25Mb/s to 50Mb/s DVCPRO50 to 100Mb/s DVCPRO HD depending on the assignment and type of coverage and quality needed.

The AG-HPX500 being deployed by EiTB is an SD- and HD-capable camera that can be switched between 50Hz and 60Hz operation.
