Bruce Reynolds, Neil Ugo (Panasonic), Brian Bazala and Bobby Fishbough
Bobby, Bruce and Brian sat down for brunch with Bill Edwards (Panasonic North America) and Neil Ugo (Panasonic Osaka Factory) to discuss Panasonic's new AVCCAM professional recording format. Neil is on the team that developed the AVCCAM format and designed the new HMC-150. It was a great opportunity for us to get more detailed information about the technology, as well as to offer input and ideas for future implementation. They are both very enthusiastic about the direction that Panasonic is heading with both the broadcast and event markets and predicted that we will see even more exciting products in the near future as many companies convert to both HD and tapeless recording formats, and as support for the AVCHD/AVCCAM format grows.
