Product Description

Details

The First P2 HD handheld camera recorder to feature the AVC-ULTRA codec family, built-in microP2 card slots, wireless LAN connection and 22x Zoom.  In addition to the established AVC-Intra100, it has AVC-LongG for extended recording and AVC-Intra200 for master level recording.  AVC-LongG25 enables extended 1920 x 1080 10 bit 4:2:2 broadcast quality recording (four-times longer than AVC-Intra100)

Features

New 22x Zoom Lens and 3MOS Image Sensors

A newly designed, compact, 22x zoom lens covers from wide 28 mm to tele 616 mm (35mm equivalent); three manual operation lens rings — zoom, focus and iris; new 1/3 type 3MOS image sensors achieve high sensitivity, low noise and 1920 x 1080 Full-HD resolution.


Wide Range of Recording Bit Rates: AVC-ULTRA*¹Codec Family

AVC-LongG50/25 and AVC-Intra100/50 codecs are provided as standard features. AVC-LongG50/25 codecs achieve 10 bit/4:2:2 image quality at a data rate of approximately 50/25 Mbps; optional AVC-Intra200 codec for visually lossless images that approach uncompressed master quality; low-bit-rate AVC-Proxy for network use.


Two microP2 Card Slots

Two microP2 card slots enable the ultimate cost-effective operation. The microP2 card, with the same reliability as the P2 card, can be used without an adapter; simultaneous recording enables safe, secure backup recording onto two media cards.


Network Function with Wireless Connection

The network function speeds up the broadcasting workflow from shooting to on-air transmission; an optional wireless module allows wireless LAN connection for tablet or smartphone linking; a 3G/4G/LTE dongle is scheduled for use in the near future.
