The VariCam line-up has received a new firmware update, which includes the ability to add a Custom Splash Screen to each camera.
Panasonic have proposed a new approach to equipment theft issues that are a big headache for equipment owners within the industry. Custom Splash Screen is a theft deterrent measure for VariCam owners, using a digital name tag which customises the splash screen on the camera with user information.
A step-by-step guide to the procedure can be found below.
