Panasonic AG-3DA1 Full HD 3D Camcorder En Route to Space Station Onboard the Final NASA Space Shuttle

Earlier today, Space Shuttle Atlantis and its four astronauts left Earth for the final space shuttle mission, which will cap off an amazing 30-year program of exploration, a program that launched great observatories, built an International Space Station, and taught us more about how humans can live and work in space.

Opening up a new dimension for 3D, our AG-3DA1 Full HD 3D camcorder is onboard Atlantis, heading to space to document the International Space Station. During the shuttle mission, NASA astronauts plan to use the lightweight 3DA1 to acquire 3D footage of the Space Station, and intend to conduct a number of scientific missions that they plan to capture with the 3DA1.

Panasonic has provided NASA with 3DA1 3D camcorders, BT-3DL2550 25.5” 3D LCD monitors and ruggedized Toughbook® laptop computers that have documented the training and preparation leading up to today’s launch.

We are delighted that the 3DA1 3D camcorder is playing a vital role in documenting this momentous NASA mission. Human spaceflight is about the discovery of new things and places, and the amazing 3D images that the 3DA1 produces may allow a new and unique view of the exploration of space for many applications.

Also, we are looking forward to sharing the compelling 3D footage from the Space Station with consumer and professional audiences worldwide to showcase the truly immersive experience that 3D can deliver.
