Panasonic Corporation will introduce the AG-HMR10U new recorder and AG-HCK10G optional camera head for AG-HMR10U in AVCCAM*2 series in October 2009. To allow users of tape media to smoothly transition to the AVCHD*3 system, the AG-HMR10U will be bundled with “EDIUS Neo 2” video editing software from Thomson Canopus (manufacturer’s suggested retail price: 29,800 Yen, tax included) for a limited time (October 2009 to March 2010).

The AG-HMR10U is the world’s first*4 compact AVCHD recorder capable with HD-SDI input and output functions. AG-HMR10U records up to 180 minutes of high quality HD video at a full-pixel HD sampling rate of 1,920 x 1,080 dots in a professional use-quality PH mode (maximum bit rate: 24 Mbps*5) same as AG-HMC155 and up to 720 minutes of video using the HE mode (average bit rate: 6 Mbps) onto a 32GB SDHC memory card with ultra-reliable performance and resistance to shock, vibration and extreme temperatures and weather.

AG-HCK10G and AG-HMR10U are connected with optional cable (maximum 20meters) and AG-HMR10U can control AG-HCK10 camera functions such as zoom, iris, focus and others by its front panel buttons.
