Reliable, Low-Cost P2 Card with 64 GB Capacity

* Total card capacity includes space for data management such as system data; therefore, the actual usable area is less than the capacity indicated on the card.

Advanced Recording Functions Employing Six Card Slots

* For detailed recording times, see the table entitled “Input Signals and Corresponding Recording Formats”.

Clip Copying and Editing

P2 records a scene as a clip (file). To play back or delete a clip, or to check and edit its metadata (file information) or add or delete a shot marker, just select the clip from the thumbnail display on the built-in 228.6 mm (9 inches) LCD monitor. The AJ-HPM200 also provides a number of functions that are convenient in the field, including:


Example of a thumbnail list

Clip Metadata Function

New Playlist Editor GUI for Intuitive Operation

VTR-like editing

Playlist Editing Function and Others

• AV Independent Edit: From the video track and four channels audio track, a desired track can be selected and edited independently. Voiceovers for inserting a narration using a microphone is also possible.
• Audio Level Adjustment of Desired Segment: By using the audio fader, the audio level of a desired segment can be adjusted.
• Playlist Export: Playlists can be saved to a P2 card, an external hard disk drive, or an FTP server. In addition, by using the playlist export function, you can export playlists along with their associated clips (including overlapping portions). They can then be converted directly into editing sequence timelines, for post-processing such as adding effects and others, by using a nonlinear editing system that supports the playlist export function.* This allows editing tasks to be coordinated smoothly.

Versatile Playback Functions Meet Diverse Needs

• Format Auto Playback: This automatically detects the video format and codec for each video clip to playback and output.
• Variable Speed Playback: For slow-motion and double-speed playback.
• Resume Playback: If you press the Stop key during playback, the AJ-HPM200 temporarily “bookmarks” the stop position until another operation is performed. When you press the Play key, playback resumes at the bookmarked position. The bookmark memory is reset when the power is turned off. The Resume Playback function is factory-set to OFF.
• Single-Clip Playback: This convenient function plays back one video clip with a one-touch operation.
•Repeat Playback: For presentations and demonstrations, use the AJ-HPM200 for repeated playback of a selected clip or multiple (but same format) clips. Playback is seamless, with no need for rewinding or cueing. There is no wear or image deterioration even after extended, continuous playback.
• Frame by Frame Playback: In editing mode, use the + or - buttons to move forward or backward one frame at a time.

Edit Control Panel with Jog/Shuttle Dial and Audio Fader

Waveform or Vectorscope Display

The AJ-HPM200 has waveform and vectorscope display functions for the playback or input video signal on the LCD monitor. During up-conversion recording, the post-conversion waveform is displayed.

Countdown display

 

Giga Ethernet for FTP Transfers

 

eSATA/USB2.0-Compatible HDD Host Function

Playback and Editing of Source Materials on a Hard Disk

Source materials on an external hard disk connected via eSATA or USB 2.0 can be played* back smoothly from thumbnails. If the data reading speed decreases temporarily due to vibration or when using a low-speed hard disk, it is possible to output only audio for continuous playback. Source materials on a hard disk can also be used in playlist editing, just like source materials on a P2 card.

AVCHD Recording/Playback and P2HD/AVCHD Conversion (Option)

The AJ-HPM200 is the first P2HD recorder to offer compatibility with low bit rate AVCHD. When equipped with the optional AJ-YCX250G AVCHD codec board, the AJ-HPM200 can record and play back AVCHD files on an SD/SDHC memory card. It can also convert and copy files between P2HD and AVCHD at normal speed.

• AVCHD Data Playback Output: AVCHD can be played back on the built-in monitor and output from the HD SDI terminal. This function is useful for using an AVCCAM camera recorder or consumer AVCHD camera recorder.

• P2HD/AVCHD Simultaneous Recording: HD SDI input can be recorded on a P2 card in the AVC-Intra/DVCPRO HD format and AVCHD format simultaneously. It is not possible to record in AVCHD format only. *Use of DCF Technologies under license from Multi-Format, Inc.

*The clip metadata will not be copied by conversion copying.
*The use of DCF Technologies is under license from Multi-Format, Inc.

RS-422A Remote (supporting VDCP command)

*Remote control with the RS-422A interface is not possible in AVCHD mode.

RS-422A A/B Roll Edit System, Supporting VDCP Command

24* bit/48 kHz High-Quality Digital Audio

*When recording in AVC-Intra 100 / 50 only. For playback, equipment or software compatible with 24 bit audio is required.

Rugged Casing

SD/SDHC Memory Card Slot

Serial Digital Interface

* The input system can be separately selected for video and audio with the Input Select key on the front panel.
* The output supports display of titles and thumbnails.
* To use linked and automatic recording, the function must be supported by the connected camera recorder. For details, please visit "Other manufacturers' ”AUTO REC” verified Camera list ".

AC/DC

IEEE 1394 Digital Interface

* Input/output is possible only when the system frequency mode is set to 59.94/50 Hz. Input/output is not possible in AVC-Intra and AVCHD mode.

Analog Input/Output

 

Field Recording: As a Viewer and Editor

Field Acquisition: HD Newsflash Broadcasts via Internet Transfer


In Editing Studios: Interfacing with Both Linear and Nonlinear Systems

*PCs must be installed with the included P2 driver in order to mount P2 cards. For editing, PCs must be installed with P2-compatible editing software available from various companies. Read "Notes Regarding the Handling of P2 Files Using a PC".
