Compatible with Mac and Windows Nonlinear Editing
With its IEEE 1394 (4-pin) and USB 2.0 interfaces, the
AG-HVX200 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-HVX200 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 (such as an Avid or Canopus
product). 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. Compatible
the AJ-HD1400 (for DVCPRO HD
recording), the AJ-SD93 (DVCPRO
50/DVCPRO), and the AG-DV2500
Also, when used with the FOCUS
FireStore FS-100, the
AG-HVX200 can provide extended-
time recording in all codec formats,
including DVCPRO HD (except in
native recording mode).
Transferring Files to an External HDD
The AG-HVX200 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.
Analog Component Signal Output
The AG-HVX200 is equipped with analog component signal (Y, Pb, Pr)
terminals for outputting 1080i, 720p and 480i (each 59.94 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-HVX200 can record in SD with a 16:9 or 4:3 aspect ratio.
When 16:9 is selected, the AG-HVX200 can record in native 16:9
recording or can be switched to a letterboxed 4:3 image.
TC Set and User File Copy with Multi-Cameras
Connecting two AG-HVX200 units together with an IEEE 1394 cable
allows set initial time-code, which then enables time-code-matched
editing with multiple camcorders. The built-in SMPTE time-code
generator/reader lets you select the Drop Frame/Non-Drop Frame and
Free Run/Rec Run modes, preset and regenerate*. User bits are also

THE ADAPTABILITY TO MEET NEEDS IN TODAY'S HD AND IT ERA
User files (with sets of camera settings) can be transferred to an SD
Memory Card. This makes it easy to synchronize images recorded
simultaneously using multiple cameras.
* 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
Apple, Avid and Canopus have
announced support of the DVCPRO
HD P2 file recorded by the AG-
HVX200. Using nonlinear editing
systems from these three leading
companies, you can produce HD
videos from DVCPRO HD native files.*
