Panasonic’s 4-d image sensors are now on display in an array at its Tokyo headquarters, which was announced on Thursday by CEO Yoshihide Suga.
The array is part of a new product called “Panasonic 4-G,” which is a 3D sensing array that will be able to “see” a person in the real world, but also detect when the camera is looking at the outside of the room, the company said.
The 4-gigapixel camera is “a powerful platform that can deliver exceptional image quality and high resolution,” according to Panasonic.
The company is selling the array at a $300,000 price tag.
The system is set to be available in two configurations: a 4-meter array that has a maximum resolution of 10 meters and a 4.5-meter one that has an average resolution of 20 meters.
It will also have a 2-meter “cameras” that have a maximum brightness of 600 lux.
The 3-gigaapixel array is priced at $2,700, while the 4-megapixel array will be $3,000.
The new camera system is also a big step up from the original Panasonic 4-towered cameras that were introduced in 2013.
The camera systems that are currently on display are not the new 4- and 4-sensor cameras that Panasonic introduced in 2014 and 2015.
Panasonic says that the new system is the first 4-and-5-camera array that is actually designed to “encompass and recognize objects and individuals in a large-scale real-time environment.”
In a video posted by Panasonic to the company’s official YouTube channel, Suga said the new sensor array will “provide a better image quality, a more robust sensor system and will allow for more advanced camera features.”
The company has said that it will offer the new array to businesses and government organizations, as well as to hospitals and schools.
“We are very excited to unveil this new array, and to offer it to customers to help them explore the possibilities of this new technology in their everyday lives,” Suga told investors during a conference call.
The announcement comes just weeks after the Panasonic Corp. unveiled its own 4-camera system that was developed in partnership with the University of Michigan, which uses it to help track down people missing in action.
