System and Interface
Comes Equipped with IEEE 1394, USB 2.0 and HD SDI Interfaces. Allows Remote Control with the AJ-RC10G.
IEEE 1394 Interface
The IEEE 1394-compliant DVCPRO (6-pin) output connector lets
you output all HD/SD compression streams without decoding.*
This means you can connect and use a DVCPRO HD VTR (such as
the AJ-HD1400) or Focus Enhancements FireStore FS-100 for
degradation-free backup recording.
The IEEE 1394 interface also makes it easy to upload data to a
Mac-based or PC-based nonlinear editing system. The AG-HPX500
also provides a host mode that lets you copy P2 files to a hard drive
without using a PC.
* Output is not possible in 720p native mode (24pN 30pN, 25pN).
(stand-alone power supply)
Compatibility with Nonlinear Editing Systems
DVCPRO HD P2 files recorded by the AG-HPX500 can be used in
nonlinear editing systems made by a variety of manufacturers,
making it possible for you to produce HD content in native DVCPRO
HD. And because the AG-HPX500 uses the same recording format
as the AG-HVX200, the AG-HPX500 is compatible with nonlinear
editing systems that support our other P2HD cameras.

HD SDI/SD Down-Conversion Output
The AG-HPX500 comes equipped with two BNC video line outputs
for flexible monitoring or line recording use.
• SDI OUT: Switchable between HD-SDI or SD-SDI (down
conversion). HD-SDI output simultaneously backs up recordings to
an external digital VTR (such as the AJ-HD1400) in sync with Rec
• VIDEO OUT: Outputs down-converted SD video (composite).
