System and Interface
Comes Equipped with IEEE 1394, USB 2.0 and HD SDI Interfaces. Allows New Camera Studio System.
IEEE 1394 Interface
The IEEE 1394-compliant DVCPRO (6-pin) output connector lets
you output all HD/SD compression streams without decoding.*
This means you can connect and use a DVCPRO HD VTR (such as
the AJ-HD1400) or AG-HPG20 P2 portable recorder for
degradation-free backup recording.
The IEEE 1394 interface also makes it easy to upload data to a
Mac-based or PC-based nonlinear editing system. The AG-HPX500
series also provides a host mode that lets you copy P2 files to a
hard drive without using a PC.
* Output is not possible in 720p native mode (24pN 30pN, 25pN).
Compatibility with Nonlinear Editing Systems
DVCPRO HD P2 files recorded by the AG-HPX500 series 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. And because the AG-HPX500 series uses the
same recording format as the AG-HVX200 or the AJ-HPX2000/
HPX2100, the AG-HPX500 series is compatible with nonlinear
editing systems that support our other P2HD cameras.

USB 2.0 Interface
The AG-HPX500 series comes equipped with a USB 2.0 interface.
Connect the AG-HPX500 series to a Windows PC, and you can
upload files from a P2 card to the PC for nonlinear editing, or to a
HD SDI/SD Down-Conversion Output
The AG-HPX500 series comes equipped with two BNC video line
outputs for flexible monitoring or line recording use.
• SDI OUT: Switchable between HD SDI or SD SDI (down
conversion). HD SDI output simultaneously backs up recordings to
an external digital VTR (such as the AJ-HD1400), 2 portable
recorder (such as AG-HPG20) or AVCCAM recorder (such as
AG-HMR10) in sync with Rec start/stop.
• VIDEO OUT: Outputs down-converted SD video (composite).
