Multi-Codec Recording of High-Quality 10-bit Images without Cropping
New HEVC Codec for High-Image-Quality 10-bit UHD/60p Recording at Low Bit Rate
The AG-CX350 is capable of recording in various formats at different compression rates (see the table below). It can record UHD/60p videos in high-image-quality 10-bit on an SD memory card. It also features a new, high-efficiency HEVC codec (LongGOP, 10-bit, 4:2:0, MOV) . When a PC with 7th Generation Intel Core i7 processor is used, the hardware acceleration enables native decoding and playback. Free software, such as VLC Media Player or QuickTime Player, provides smooth playback on a notebook PC or MacBook with Intel Core i7 processor.*
* Playback may lack smoothness depending on the PC environment, such as storage and memory devices.
10-bit Variable Frame Rate (VFR) without Cropping
In UHD, variable frame rate (VFR) recording at 1 fps to 60 fps is possible. In FHD, super-slow can be realized at a maximum of 120 fps. Both provide high-quality 10-bit, full-frame pictures with no image area cropping even at high frame rates.
MOV/AVCHD/P2 MXF* File Formats Supported
The AG-CX350 records MOV files that are highly compatible and easy to use. This file format is the same as that used on Panasonics compact cinema camera, the AU-EVA1, and supports file names with up to 20 characters, allowing recorded video clips to be easily managed. The AG-CX350 also supports conventional AVCHD recording, including the AVCHD 8 Mb/s mode, used widely as the format in college and professional football coaching analysis. And it will support the MXF P2 file format for broadcasting, enabling AVC-Intra or AVC-LongG recording.*
* To be supported within 2019. AVC-Intra200/100/50 codec will be supported in the future. Use a microP2 card for recording in P2 format.
Freeze Frame (Still Image Capture)
When playing back video clips on the AG-CX350, any desired frame can be captured as a still image (JPEG) and recorded onto an SD memory card. Video playback, frame advance (+/-), and still-image captures can all be done intuitively by touch panel operation.
Double Memory Card Slots Improve Recording Reliability
Two SD memory card slots capable of using SDXC/SDHC/microP2 cards*1 enable unlimited*2 relay recording by simply changing SD memory cards. Recording reliability is further improved with simultaneous recording and background recording. And the AG-CX350 is equipped with Pre Rec, Interval Rec and Time Stamp recording functions.
*1 For memory card usage conditions, see the “Recording Media”.
Unlimited* Relay Recording
Automatically records continuously from Slot 1 to Slot 2. By changing a full card with a new card, images can be recorded continuously for many hours.
Identical data is recorded onto cards in both slots in this dual recording mode.
Records ordinary Rec Start/Stop-controlled data in Slot 1, and records all data, even when Slot 1 is stopped, in Slot 2.
*1: To be supported within 2019.
