The Panasonic YAGH Interface Unit features

* 2-Channel XLR Inputs with 48V Phantom Power per channel
* Audio Level Controls and Display Monitor
* HDMI & 3G-SDI Output
* 4K 10-bit 422 Output via Quad SDI to compatible external recorders
* Timecode In for multicam productions
* 4-pin standard 12v Power input

The combination of the GH4 and the YAGH Interface Unit transforms the already amazing 4K GH4 into a true production workhorse with professional and industry standard I/O, Dual XLR inputs for professional audio with 48V Phantom power per input, and audio monitoring for easy of use and a streamlined production workflow.

The YAGH Interface Unit allows users to record professional quality audio directly into the camera without having to sync audio from bulky external recorders, thus speeding up the post-production workflow substantially. Event shooters, wedding videographers and those shooting corporate events or productions will benefit significantly from the added professional I/O and audio functionality the YAGH offers. See more below on the capabilities of the GH4.

The Revolutionary GH4 Brings Afforadable In-Camera 4K Video To The Masses!

The GH4 is the Worlds 1st 4K DSLM camera, which sports a New Live MOS 16.05 MP sensor powered by the new Venus Engine for ultimate noise reduction, inreased resolution and improved colour reproduction.

The New Venus Engine features a newly developed Quad-Core CPU making high-speed signal processing a reality. Combined with the new 16 MP CMOS (Live MOS) sensor, the Venus Engine ensures improved sensitivity of maximum ISO 25,600, excellent gradation of shades of colours, stunning colour fidelity and increased resolution for maximum impact, while keeping a natural and pleasing image quality.

Lightweight and compac, the Micro Four Thirds GH4 is equiped with high-precision Contrast Auto Focus, which now integrates DFD or "Depth from Defocus" technology to achieve an incredible auto focus speed of 0.07 seconds, and a burst mode of 12 fps (AFS).

The GH4 features a stunning OLED 2,359,000-dot Live Viewfinder and a 1,036,000-dot rear swivel monitor for an enhanced user experience and confident shooting of boths stills and video.

A true stills and video hybrid camera, the first of its kind - the new DMC-GH4 offers unrivaled professional video features in both Full HD at 1080p. For the 1st time in a digital mirrorless camera ¿ Cinema 4K DCI 4096 x 2160 / 24fps & QFHD at 3840 x 2160 up to 30fps video recording in MOV/MP4 at high-bit rates 100Mbps IPB (4K/QFHD) as well as up to 200Mbps (ALL-Intra at Full HD only) to satisfy the demand for professional video quality in a compact and affordable package.
