At CES 2021 Panasonic announced a CES-exclusive immersive concert experience featuring indie rock band Cold War Kids, filmed at the dynamic AREA15 complex in Las Vegas. The multidimensional listening and viewing experience will showcase several Panasonic technologies, including the new LUMIX BGH1 camera, Technics True Wireless in-ear headphones and the Panasonic PT-RQ35K, the world’s smallest and lightest 3-Chip DLP™ 4K projector in its class.
The concert will air on January 12 at 2:30pm CST.
Six BGH1 box-style cameras will be positioned around the venue to capture the concert action from various angles, providing an up-close experience for viewers. Launched in November 2020, the BGH1 is a Micro Four Thirds mirrorless cinema and live event camera designed for versatile video production. Optimized to capture fast-moving subjects, the BGH1 leverages advanced deep learning technology to detect specific focus areas. Ideal for recording live events such as concerts and capturing cinematic footage, the camera keeps tracking the subject even if they move quickly, turn their back to the camera, tilt their head or move far away from the camera. Panasonic is proud of the technology achieved in the BGH1, now the second LUMIX camera and the first Micro Four Thirds mirrorless camera to be certified for production for Netflix. BGH1 Netflix certification follows the LUMIX S1H certification, which was approved last year.
The Cold War Kids have partnered with Technics this year in support of the authenticity of sound reproduction in the new Technics True Wireless in-ear headphones. The detailed, high-fidelity reproduction of sound that Technics offers across its range of products lets Cold War Kids share their music exactly as it was originally intended. The Technics True Wireless in-ear headphones, announced at CES 2020 and launched over the summer, are equipped with industry-leading noise cancelling technology, a compact body, Bluetooth antenna and long-lasting battery.
“As the evolution happens from listening to music away from the best sounding home stereo, I love that Technics is making new wireless buds that have an emphasis on Hi-Fi. It’s exciting, it’s all progress. Artists should keep doing their thing and know that the audio quality is going to be lifted by the technology and brands like Technics that are always pushing the boundaries,” said Nathan Willet, lead singer, Cold War Kids.
Cold War Kids will be headlining Downtown Rising on May 28th at Parc International in downtown Lafayette. Tickets are on sale now at SocialEntertainment.net. The concert was originally scheduled to take place on November 19th but was postponed due to COVID-19.
