CES 2019: Panasonic’s LUMIX Mirrorless Cams, 4K OLED TV With Dolby Atmos Headline Tech Improvements
Panasonic will unveil additional key features of the new LUMIX S full-frame mirrorless cameras at CES 2019. The LUMIX S full-frame mirrorless cameras and lenses will be available at the end of March 2019. In addition, the company flaunted new additions to their GZ2000 4K OLED TV Series and developments in emotion-sensing technology.
pansaonHLG Photo allows images to be shot with a wider dynamic range. By reproducing both glaring lights and dark shadows that are likely to be overexposed or underexposed, the Lumix S achieves rich, precise color expression as close as possible to visual memory.
HLG Photos are produced as an HSP file. The user can play back these vibrant images on the latest Panasonic HLG-compliant 4KTV via HDMI cable connection or other HLG-compliant devices. It is also ideal for photographers’ photo presentations.
Taking advantage of the Body Image Stabilizer. (I.S.) mechanism, eight consecutive images are automatically shot while shifting the sensor. These eight images are synthesized into a single image by the new Venus Engine, which boasts high-speed signal processing. Precise details are faithfully reproduced to be saved as a beautiful, highly realistic image. This mode is ideal for shooting natural landscapes or fine art objects with delicate details.
Considering situations where moving subjects are included in the scene, suboptions are available to suppress motion blur, so photographers can use this mode the same as shooting in a normal photo shooting mode.
GZ2000 4K OLED TV
According to The Verge, Panasonic has released its latest flagship GZ2000 4K OLED TV, which Panasonic utilizes a “professional edition” panel that’s been tuned to perfection in Hollywood by colorist Stefan Sonnenfeld. The TV leverages Dolby Vision, the Samsung-backed HDR10+, and HLG Photo for displaying HDR color gamut in still image. AI functionalities are supported, including Alexa and Google Assistant. The biggest feature includes Dolby Atmos speakers that are embedded within the TV.
With proprietary devices such as cameras, heat imaging cameras, pressure sensors, odor sensors, and analytics algorithms, this technology can estimate emotions, thermal sensation, body motion, stress, etc. with great accuracy. This technology can ultimately guide appliances, devices, and systems in a smart home or smart car to make recommendations to foster wellbeing.
