Panasonic: There Will Be No P2 Card Shortage

John Baisley (right), executive vice president of Panasonic Solutions Co., stood on stage before TV industry insiders at NAB this week and assured the audience  that there would be no disruptions in the availability of P2 cards and tape stock as the Tokyo-based company works to rebound from the earthquake and tsunami that hit Japan last month.

While Baisley said that there would be no shortage of Panasonic media, he did mention that the company is having some problems in the production of its equipment.

“Although our factories came away from the disaster relatively unscathed, we are having issues with component suppliers that were located in the affected area of Japan,” he said. “We are still working on model by model impact, but suffice to say, we will experience some product availability issues in the short term.”

Baisley indirectly underscored the significance of the P2 announcement by announcing that worldwide sales of P2 HD had recently passed 200,000 units. [Via TVTechnology]
