The AG-HVX200 HD Camcorder
Puts a Host of Powerful Features in Your Hands
Panasonic has been a leader in developing video technologies for the production
industry, including filmmaking, broadcasting and other professional applications.
Now we have packed a wealth of our leading technologies into an exciting new
Introducing the AG-HVX200. This handheld DVCPRO HD P2 camcorder is
designed to meet emerging needs in HD content production. It debuts as
Panasonic's first HD video product to use P2, the cutting-edge memory recording
device that has the potential to revolutionize the entire production paradigm.
The AG-HVX200 records HD, either 1080i or 720p video acquired by a new optical
system and high-performance digital signal processor onto a P2 card using the
broadcasting DVCPRO HD codec. This system achieves a level of image quality
that conventional handheld HD cameras simply cannot match, while also
supporting HD/SD multi-format and multi-codec recording capabilities.
Variable frame rate recording is just one of the features that makes the
AG-HVX200 unique in its class. Using technologies that make the Panasonic
VariCam camcorder a favorite in movie production, this powerful function allows
the overcranking and undercranking techniques used with film cameras to create
fast-motion and slow-motion effects. The P2 card offers superior reliability,
immediate playback and outstanding cost-performance. It allows direct
connection to nonlinear editing systems and streamlines the production work flow,
by providing to the editing system data files ready to be edited, rather than a video
tape which would require the task of digitizing.
On top of all its advanced features and technologies, the AG-HVX200 inherits the
refined design and easy operation that distinguishes Panasonic's high-value
DVX100 DV camera series. In the AG-HVX200, video professionals of all kinds will
find a powerful tool for giving form to their creative visions.
