Compatible with Mac and Windows Nonlinear Editing
With its IEEE 1394 (4-pin) and USB 2.0 interfaces, the
AG-HVX200A series connects directly to Mac and PC.*
The IEEE 1394 port supports SBP2 (Serial Bus Protocol 2) and
allows direct connection to a Mac, making it easy to transfer P2 files
for use with FinalCutPro nonlinear editing software. When you've
recorded on mini DV tape, the AG-HVX200A series can stream to a
conventional DV-compatible nonlinear editing system.
The USB 2.0 interface lets you transfer P2 files to a Windows PC for
use with a nonlinear editing system (Adobe, Avid, Grass Valley or
Matrox products). These two interfaces provide you the best
performance for Mac and Windows nonlinear editing systems.*
External Recording with IEEE 1394 Streaming
The IEEE 1394 interface can be
used to control an external device
synched with the camera's
Start/Stop operation, making it
easy to create backup recordings.
For DVCPRO HD
recording,compatible device is the
AJ-HD1400. Also when used in
combination with the Firestore
Drive, the FS-100 or the P2 Gear,
the AG-HPG10, the time for
recording can be extended by
virtue of the additional cards or the
size of the HDD in the Firestore.
Transferring Files to an External HDD
The AG-HVX200A series offers a host function. Insert a P2 card in
the card slot, and data can be transferred to an external Hard Disk
Drive (AC Power Supply needed) via the IEEE 1394 port.
Analogue Component Signal Output
The AG-HVX200A series is equipped with analogue component
signal (Y, P
) terminals for outputting 1080i, 720p and 576i (each
50 Hz) camera video signals. This lets you preview recorded clips
on an ordinary HD/SD TV monitor.
16:9 Squeeze and Letterbox Modes
The AG-HVX200A series can record in SD with a 16:9 or 4:3 aspect
ratio. When 16:9 is selected, the AG-HVX200A series can record in
native 16:9 recording or can be switched to a letterboxed 4:3
*1: The PC must have the P2 Driver installed in order to mount the P2 Cards. For editing, the PC must have P2 Compatible editing software installed.

THE ADAPTABILITY TO MEET NEEDS IN TODAY'S HD AND IT ERA
TC Set and User File Copy with Multi-Cameras
Connecting two AG-HVX200A series cameras with a IEEE 1394
cable allows the second camera to synchronize with the first
camera which enables time-code-matched editing with multiple
cameras. This cable does not need to stay connected. The built-in
SMPTE time-code generator/reader lets you select the Drop
and Free Run/Rec Run modes, preset and regenerate*. User bits
are also provided.
User files (with sets of camera settings) can be transferred to an SD
Memory Card and shared with other cameras. This makes multiple
camera set-ups fast and easy. Scene Files and Operational files are
separated so that if only the "look" is desired that can be used vs,
all of the camera's operational settings which would include
everything from Viewfinder Display to Recording Format.
* Regenerate — available in tape mode.
Compatibility with Nonlinear Editing Systems
In developing DVCPRO and P2 products, Panasonic has been
working in collaboration with a number of strategic P2 Partners.
The results are products that offer maximum compatibility with
existing hardware and software, including IT-based system
platforms and nonlinear editors and network servers.
Adobe, Apple, Avid, Grass Valley, Matrox and MainConcept have
announced support of the DVCPRO HD P2 file recorded by the
AG-HVX200A series. Using nonlinear editing systems from these
three leading companies, you can produce High Definition video
from native DVCPRO HD files.*
