Panasonic has announced a new firmware update for the VariCam LT that adds Raw signal output via two 3G-SDI terminals to an external Raw recorder at 4K or UHD 60p.

Panasonice VariCam LTRaw recording will be compatible with the Odyssey 7Q and 7Q+ monitor/recorders from Convergent Design Inc. and the Atomos Inc. Shogun Inferno recording monitor. The recorded CinemaDNG file is compatible with DaVinci Resolve 12.5.1, Drastic Media Reactor 5.04 and upcoming versions of major NLEs and grading systems.

“VariCam has established itself as the 4K production camera of choice for those seeking the best image quality,” said Steven Cooperman, senior product manager, Panasonic. “The breadth of industry support for this newly-enabled VariCam LT RAW output significantly furthers that position.”
