True High Definition
Newly Designed Leica Dicomar 13x Zoom Lens System
for HD Applications
The New Leica Dicomar® HD Lens
Developed specifically for HD recording, this lens system features a
large 82-mm (diameter) filter along with 15 lens elements in 11 groups,
including three aspherical lenses.
The Leica Dicomar lens incorporates Leica optical technology and
know-how throughout. The use of low-dispersion glass reduces color
aberration and increases resolution, while a multi-coating process
minimizes flare and ghosting. This results in sharp, crisp, beautifully
rendered images with delicate nuances and exceptional shading.

Optical Image Stabilizer
Wide-Angle, 13x Zoom Lens
The Leica Dicomar Lens is a powerful 13x zoom lens designed
especially for HD video recording. Extending all the way to 4.2mm
(equivalent to 32.5mm on a 35mm lens), this lens covers the full wide-
angle range needed in most broadcast and professional shooting.
There's no need for a bulky wide-angle conversion lens. With a
minimum object distance (MOD) of approximately 1.9 ft (0.6 meter) in
telephoto mode, the AG-HVX200 has true handheld maneuverability.
And with the same cam-driven zoom ring acclaimed in the DVX100
series, the AG-HVX200 gives you the superior operability and control
you need in demanding applications.
IMAGE QUALITY FOR THE PROFESSIONAL
OIS (Optical Image Stabilizer)
Panasonic's advanced OIS (Optical Image Stabilizer) dramatically
reduces the blurring caused by hand-shake. Optical processing with
an automatic correction function helps assure consistently clear,
New Progressive CCD and DSP
Achieve Higher Sensitivity and Image Quality
New High-Sensitivity Progressive CCD
Each pixel has a large light-receiving
area, giving this newly developed 1/3-
type progressive CCD the kind of high
sensitivity not available in previous
compact HD cameras. This advanced
CCD combines with a newly
developed digital signal processor
(DSP) in combination with a very
sophisticated offset spatial
technology acheives a balance of high
resolution and high S/N ratio that rivals HD broadcasting cameras.
New DSP with 14-bit A/D Conversion and 19-bit
The AG-HVX200's newly developed
digital signal processor for 1080/60p
video signals uses 14-bit A/D
conversion and 19-bit inner
processing to attain unprecedented
accuracy. While the camera does not
record 1080/60p, it is from this
capture that all other signals are
made. The DSP performs a variety of
adjustments, including eight types of
gamma settings, for each of the R, G and B channels. It also converts
the signals to HD or SD format. With a performance equivalent to the
processors used in many higher-end HD cameras, this new DSP helps
the AG-HVX200 deliver beautiful images in all video formats.
