The Panasonic Group is one of the world's leading audio and visual brands and – at present – its imaging divisions are split into two; Panasonic Connect Co., Ltd. and Panasonic Entertainment & Communication Co., Ltd. (PEAC). These businesses will be integrated to form a 'strengthened' organization named Panasonic Entertainment & Communication. 

The two divisions are essentially Panasonic's professional and consumer divisions of imaging. Panasonic Connect develops high-end and specialized audio and visual equipment for professional services such as film and television and, Panasonic Entertainment & Communication produces products that we can pick up off the shelves, such as the best Panasonic cameras like the Panasonic Lumix S5 IIx
