Leitch Joins Panasonic P2 Consortium Leitch and Panasonic partner to provide compatibility between Leitch NEXIO(tm) server system and Panasonic P2 series
September 14, 2004

by --

Leitch Technology Corporation today announced
that its NEXIO(tm) TXS and ITS servers and NewsFlash(tm) editing systems
will support the Panasonic DVCPRO Professional Plug-in ("P2") solid state
memory-based technology. The partnership of Panasonic and Leitch will allow
the companies' mutual customers to streamline their workflow by expediting
the movement of media acquired in the field into the NEXIO server shared
storage environment.
"Panasonic has chosen to use the industry-standard MXF file format
for the P2 technology, which fits perfectly into Leitch's open platform
strategy, and therefore it is a simple matter to interface Panasonic's
technology into Leitch's NEXIO shared storage system" said Tim Slate,
director of product marketing for the Leitch server division.
"We are very pleased that Leitch will secure the interface with our
DVCPRO P2 series. This will enhance the choice of IT News Gathering ("ING")
system to the customer globally," said Mr. Shimozuru, head of Professional
AV System B.U. of Panasonic AVC Networks Company.
The Panasonic DVCPRO P2 series is a next-generation "ING" system
that uses the P2 card as recording media. Leitch's NEXIO is a modular,
scalable and highly cost-effective server system for transmission and news
environments, which offers integrated applications platforms for editing,
browsing and media management. Leitch's NewsFlash is a fully integrated
non-linear editing system that dramatically reduces editing time by
providing direct access to all content stored on the NEXIO server system as
soon as ingest begins.
