This promotion will also include those cameras bought in April and May 2008.
Registration to this internet promotion could not be easier. By just adding the name and the AG-HVX201AE camera serial number, users will have access to participate in this promotion.
The Lumix DMC-FX35EG compact 10Mpixel camera features a 25mm wide-angle Leica DC Vario-Elmarit lens with a 4x optical zoom compact enough to fit in a slim, stylish body. This advanced lens system allows users to capture images with an unprecedented sense of breadth and depth.
Panasonic's TV-by-IT training course is an innovative programme designed to explain solid-state and IT workflow for video production. Covering all essential aspects of production and post-production with solid-state tapeless technology, the courses encompass the entire workflow from metadata to archiving, with theoretical content to explain the technical background, and hands-on practical sessions. TV-by-IT courses will be held at universities and media schools throughout Europe.
"Panasonic's leading position in the solid-state, tapeless production revolution has been won not just by our outstanding P2 technology, but also by our active role in educating users in the best techniques for using it," said Nela Pertl, European Provideo Product Manager, Panasonic Professional Broadcast & IT Systems. "The AG-HVX201AE camcorder appeals widely to a variety of users, and the TV-by-IT course offers them a great way to fully understand the benefits of P2 production."
