DSP with 14-Bit A/D Conversion and 19-Bit Processing
The digital signal processor
developed for the AG-HPX170's
1080/60p video signals uses
14-bit A/D conversion and 19-bit
inner processing to attain
unprecedented accuracy.
The DSP performs a variety of
adjustments, including seven
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 DSP delivers beautiful images in all video formats.
Dynamic Range Stretch (DRS)
In scenes with mixed contrast, such as when panning from indoors
to outdoors, the DRS function automatically suppresses blocked
shadows and blown highlights. A gamma curve and knee slope is
estimated to match the contrast of each pixel, and applied in real
time. When dark, bright, and intermediate shades are all contained
in the same scene, this produces excellent gradation for each
shade and minimizes blocked shadows and blown highlights. The
images that result are enhanced by a visually wide dynamic range.

Blown highlights are suppressed.
Blocked shadows are suppressed.

7-Mode Gamma for Richer Gradation
Drawing on technologies developed for the VariCam, Panasonic
has equipped the AG-HPX170 with advanced gamma functions that
address seven different shooting scenarios and enhance your
creative abilities. This includes the Cine-Like Gamma, which
produces the characteristic warm tone of film recordings.
