Channel One Standardizes on P2 Solutions

Channel One (?????? ?????), the largest broadcast station in Russia, is adopting Panasonic Broadcast P2 solutions for tapeless video production.

The broadcaster is taking more than 50 AJ-SPX800 P2 camcorders and a dozen AJ-HPM100 P2HD mobile recorders for its news production operations. The transition of the news production department to a tapeless infrastructure will take place this summer, facilitated by Moscow-based systems integrator Okno TV, the general contractor for the project.

The AJ-SPX800 DVCPRO P2 features solid-state memory recording and IT domain integration. It combines a 2/3-inch 3-CCD camera with 24 fps and 30 fps progressive and 60 fields interlace recording in 25 Mbps DVCPRO and 50 Mbps DVCPRO50 format on a P2 card.
