Osaka, Japan (August 22nd, 2010) – Panasonic Corporation will launch AJ-HPX3100, a new recorder in the P2 HD series solid-state memory card recording system on October 2010.
Incorporating a 2.2 megapixel 2/3 type CCD image sensor (3CCD) and the latest AVC-Intra Codec for broadcasting (compatible with MPEG-4 AVC/H.264), the new AJ-HPX3100 records high image quality HD video with full-pixel resolution using full sampling in P2 memory cards for professional use with a large capacity and reliability. It has a high sensitivity of F11 (2,000 lx) in 1080/59.94i mode or F12 (2000 lx) in 1080/50i mode and high image quality with S/N ratio of 59 dB*1. It also supports high-quality 24 bit audio recording (in AVC-Intra mode).
The new AJ-HPX3100 is lighter (approx. 3.9kg (8.6 lb) without accessories) and consumes less power (approx. 34W *2) than the conventional 2/3 type 3CCD camera recorders. Its compact design featuring a low center of gravity ensures an unobstructed view of camera operators. The new recorder also includes wireless metadata input capability and a new video encoder board capable of high-quality proxy recording as options (sold separately/now under development). These features realize further improved workflow.
AJ-HPX3100G will be showcased in the Panasonic booth (#3001 in Building 3) at the BIRTV 2010 exhibition in the industry of radio, film, and TV held in Beijing, China from August 23 to 26.
