-- World's first(1) DSLM camera capable of 4K video recording

Panasonic's specially developed image sensor and new Venus Engine image processor have enabled improvements to sensitivity, resolution, tone and color reproductivity, realizing outstanding photographic quality in pursuit of texture representation.

This camera is the first in the industry(*2) to feature DFD (Depth from Defocus), a unique spatial perception technology that instantaneously detects distance according to the level of lens blur (defocus property), to improve auto focus performance in both speed and precision. And as the world's first(*1) DSLM camera capable of 4K video recording, this camera realizes highly detailed and realistic imagery, only possible with 4K that offers four times the resolution of Full HD.

When combined with a professional interface unit with I/O terminals for SDI and XLR, it can support diverse requirements in the field of video production.

This camera will go on sale worldwide this spring as the "LUMIX GH4."

Panasonic's SDXC and SDHC cards (UHS-I compatible) support the new speed class standard "UHS Speed Class 3 (U3)" for guaranteeing a constant minimum write speed of 30 MB/s (240 Mbps) when recording video, and are capable of recording a diverse range of high definition video including 4K video.

Both cards will be released worldwide this spring under the "SDUC Series."

Cloud computing delivers on-demand resources that provide businesses with flexibility and cost-savings. The challenge in moving workloads to the cloud has been the cost and complexity of ensuring the initial and ongoing security and regulatory (PCI, HIPAA, FFIEC) compliance across private and public clouds.

In the rush to compete in the digital age, a successful digital transformation is essential, but many organizations are setting themselves up for failure. There’s a common misconception that the process is just about technology, but it’s not. It’s about your business. It shouldn’t be treated as an isolated IT project; it should be driven by business needs with the committed involvement of a range of stakeholders.
In today's enterprise, digital transformation represents organizational change even more so than technology change, as customer preferences and behavior drive end-to-end transformation across lines of business as well as IT. To capitalize on the ubiquitous disruption driving this transformation, companies must be able to innovate at an increasingly rapid pace. Traditional approaches for driving innovation are now woefully inadequate for keeping up with the breadth of disruption and change facin...
