Panasonic Ships AG-DVC15 Enhanced 3-CCD Mini-DV Camcorder(September 25, 2001)
On a single ultra-compact mini-DV cassette, the AG-DVC15 records for up to 83 minutes of digital component video (500 TV lines of resolution) with 16-bit PCM digital audio. The miniature DV cassettes can be played back in all Panasonic DVCPRO studio VTRs (using an optional adapter), enhancing the use of DV video in professional applications.
The AG-DVC15 teams three Interline Transfer (IT) CCD imagers with 43-mm filters and a large-diameter 12X optical zoom lens to deliver high picture quality and excellent sensitivity. The AG-DVC15 comes standard with a 4-pin IEEE 1394 digital interface terminal for the fast transfer of digital video into MAC and Windows-based PCs for nonlinear editing. The IEEE 1394
terminal also facilitates the dubbing of digital video onto a DV recorder with no quality loss.
Weighing 5.5 pounds in full operating condition, the AG-DVC15 offers manual functions, including manual focus, manual iris, automatic white balance, program auto exposure, ND filter and Gain Up (to +12dB). For easy viewing, the unit offers a built-in 3 rotatable color LCD monitor or 0.5 color viewfinder.
A comprehensive list of standard features include IR remote control for key functions, low power consumption of only 10.8 watts with LCD monitor, a hand grip zoom lever and rec/rec pause button for low-level shooting, and video and S-Video outputs. Shooters can select from several programmed Auto
Exposure modes. The AG-DVC15 can record for up to 123 minutes in long-play mode.
The AG-DVC15 is equipped with two 16-bit or four 12-bit digital PCM audio channels, two XLR audio connectors, audio level indicator, manual audio VR (independent channel 1/channel 2), a built-in stereo mic and external mic input.
The AG-DVC15 is available at a suggested list price of $2,595. For more information, visit www.panasonic.com/dvproline
