Panasonic, Apple Collaborate on Decks & 24P SupportDVCPRO50 and DVCPRO HD to include FireWire interfaces
Panasonic will be adding FireWire to upcoming DVCPRO50 and DVCPRO HD VTRs, making them the first tape decks to support full ITU-601digital 4:2:2 quality video at 50 Mbps and high-definition video at 100 Mbps over FireWire. The addition of FireWire to the VTRs eliminates the need to add a specialized PCI capture card in the computer, as well as the need to decompress the video prior to transfer.
The AG-DVX100 24P mini-DV camcorder was announced yesterday at the NAB convention in Las Vegas, and Apple has committed to supporting it in a future version of Final Cut Pro. This will allow users to acquire, transfer and edit content in Final Cut Pro at the camcorder's native 24 FPS, 480-line progressive-scan format.
The AG-DVX100 is the first mini-DV format camcorder to capture 24 FPS digital video. It features three 1/3" 410,000-pixel progressive- scan CCDs that allow the camcorder to capture high-sensitivity images in both standard 60 field per second interlace scan (NTSC) and 24 frames per second progressive scan.
