(The download is free but you must have a BIN key to unlock the software)

If you need to purchase a Universal Mark-II software BIN key, please click HERE.


IMPORTANT: We have no way to replace your BIN key should you lose it and need it in the future. Please make a copy of the key on a flashcard or thumb drive. Should  you lose your BIN key, you will have to purchase another. Exporting .MOV files requires the free version of QuickTime. Sometimes QuickTime does not load the required codec to create .MOV files. It is advised to also load the Panasonic P2 Viewer Plus software, which is free. The P2 Viewer Plus will fill in the missing codec for QuickTime to work properly. This is not a deficiency in the Universal Mark-II software. It is just a quirk of QuickTime. If only exporting .AVI files or image sequences, QuickTime is not required.

Set your font size to 100% for proper operation of this software.
International users should set their regional/numeric settings to USA/English.

How to install this software. Please read carefully.
1- Save the BIN key to your PC in a place that is easy to locate later, such as your desktop.
2- Download the software from the link above.
3- When you install the Universal Mark-II software, it will ask you to browse to the BIN key and click it with your mouse.
4- Once it is clicked, the key information will automatically log itself into your PC so you don't have to manually type it in.

Future installations of the software will not require you to do anything else as long as you keep this key
available on your PC. So make sure that you save it someplace easy to find!
