Panasonic Adds AVC-Intra to P2 HD Line
Panasonic this week announced several new additions and capabilities to its P2 HD solid-state format.

The company will begin shipping the AJ-HPX2000 P2 HD camcorder, the first shoulder-mount camera in the P2 HD lineup, in January and will include 24p frame-rate capability in addition to optional support of AVC-Intra, a new advanced independent frame compression codec. The codec, based on the H.264 (MPEG-4, Part 10) standard, will be offered in an optional board that will be available in July 2007. Panasonic says AVC-Intra provides highly efficient independent frame 10-bit encoding and will effectively double the recording capacity of a P2 card. AVC-Intra will be offered in two flavors: 100 Mbps for highest HD quality and 50 Mbps for more bandwidth-efficient operation.

Panasonic is also now shipping the AJ-HPM100, a companion P2 HD recorder player. Dubbed the "P2 Mobile," the 14.4-pound recorder folds like a laptop and features a six-slot P2 card reader, the latest I/Os, an SD memory card slot, broadcast-level editing controls and a 9-inch widescreen HD LCD monitor with stereo speakers, as well as conversion between 10809 and 720p HD formats. An optional AVC-Intra board will be available in July 2007.
