Wexler Purchases 12 AJ-HDX900 HD Camcorders
Wexler Video Corp. has purchased 12 new Panasonic AJ-HDX900 2/3-inch DVCPRO HD camcorders. The Burbank, Calif.-based equipment supply company will rent the AJ-HDX900s out to clients working in scripted and non-scripted television production, as well as in documentary, independent cinematography and corporate video production.

The AJ-HDX900 provides 4:2:2 sampling and intra-frame recording at 100 Mbps in 11 high-definition formats. The AJ-HDX900 features a native 16:9, 2/3-inch HD, 1-million pixel 3-CCD system. It offers an IEEE 1394 digital output that allows video professionals to connect directly with nonlinear editing systems and VTRs.

"Directors of photography love the 24-frame cine-style look-and-feel that the SDX900 has given them," said Joe Ordesky, Wexler's chief technical officer. "The HDX900 allows a DP to significantly step up in quality but at a lower cost than before for full 2/3-inch HD quality shooting. This is a significant benefit to a mainstream production. We can offer a high-performance HD camera at a cost level a mainstream production typically rents an SD camera for," he said.

Ordesky said, the HDX900 is highly compatible with Panasonic's variable frame rate AJ-HDC27 VariCam HD Cinema camera, and he expects both cameras to be rented together for television assignments.

The FAA’s current rules and proposed ban on flight over people, requirement of visual line of sight and restriction on nighttime flying, effectively prohibit broadcasters from using UAS for newsgathering. ~ WMUR-TV General Manager Jeff Bartlett
