Equipped with four P2 card slots, the AG-HPX502 allows extended HD recording time and delivers the high reliability, quick recording starts and IT benefits that distinguish P2 and revolutionize the recording and editing workflow.
A P2HD Camera-Recorder That's Built for Professionals • Supports all HD/SD recording formats at the price of an SD camera-recorder • Advanced P2 technology provides fast, rugged performance plus IT connectivity • 2/3-inch interchangeable lens system • Variable frame rate function...
Chromatic Aberration Compensation (CAC) Chromatic Aberration Compensation (CAC) function is a new feature in the AG-HPX502. This exclusive technology sets up a conversation between lens and camera which allows for a highly sophisticated algorithm to be deployed which will automatically compensate the registration error that is caused mainly by lens chromatic aberration, and minimize the circumjacent blur.
Extended Recording with Four Slots for 16-GB P2 Cards The AG-HPX502 has four P2 cards slots so you can record continuously onto all four in sequence. Using four of the new 16-GB P2 cards (available soon), you can record up to 64 minutes of HD recording (1080/60i or 720/60p, 4 cards x 16 minutes = 64) or 128 minutes of SD (DVCPRO 50) recording (4 cards x 32 minutes = 128).
Native and Over-60p (50p) Modes •720p Native Mode: The AG-HPX502 records images at the frame rate set in the camera. Using the AG-HPX502 to play back the recording at the normal rate, you can preview the speed effect right on the spot, without using a frame rate converter. Native mode also extends the recording time.
Shifts the Cine-Like mode to prioritize contrast 1080/480 24p Advance Mode When recording in 1080/24p or 480/24p at 60 Hz, the AG-HPX502 lets you select 24pA (Advance) mode. In this mode, it performs 60i conversion using 2:3:3:2 pulldown, which maintains higher image quality than ordinary 24p (2:3 pulldown) in nonlinear editing*.
The AG-HPX502 records the A/V data for each recording as a file on the P2 card, which eliminates the need for digitizing. The files can be used directly in a nonlinear editing system or transferred over a network.
When a P2 card with marked clips is inserted in a PC*, it's possible to have only the marked clips displayed. The AG-HPX502 also has a text memo function. When recording or previewing a clip, press the Text Memo button at any of up to 100 locations and a blank text memo label is registered.
File transfer (HOST) Compatibility with Nonlinear Editing Systems DVCPRO HD P2 files recorded by the AG-HPX502 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.
USB 2.0 Interface The AG-HPX502 comes equipped with a USB 2.0 interface. Connect the AG-HPX502 to a Windows PC, and you can upload files from a P2 card to the PC for nonlinear editing, or to a network server. USB2.0...
