Panasonic Intros 24P mini-DVFormat to gain support in Final Cut Pro
The new palm-sized AG-DVX100 is equipped with 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, 525-line interlace scan as well as 24 frames progressive.
Panasonic has debuted a new family of 4:2:2 resolution, 50Mbps data rate DVCPRO50 digital component products, including new 16:9/4:3 camcorders and editing VTRs with IEEE-1394 interfaces.
The AJ-SDX900 is switchable between 25 Mbps 4:1:1 DVCPRO and EFP-quality 50 Mbps 4:2:2 DVCPRO50 modes, supports both 16:9 and 4:3 aspect ratios and is the first broadcast-grade standard-definition field production camera/recorder to offer 24P. The AJ-SDC915 2/3" camcorder also offers DVCPRO50/DVCPRO and 16:9 and 4:3 switchability.
Panasonic has also debuted two configurations of a new multi-format DTV studio/portable cameras--the AK-HC931 and AK-HC930--and an ultra-compact multi-format DTV camera, the AK-HC900.
The AK-HC931 offers 480 interlace performance and is upgradeable to 720 line progressive (720p), 1080 line interlace (1080i) and 24p. Weighing 9.9 pounds, the camera offers a built-in signal format converter that converts the high-definition progressive scan signal to a 480i standard-definition output.
