Panasonic P2 mobile recorder/player hits the street
Panasonic has announced availability of the new, solid-state AJ-HPM110 P2 HD mobile recorder/player, which adds native 1080/24p recording, a 1080/24PsF input/output and longer record times to the list of capabilities of its predecessor, the AJ-HPM100.
The AJ-HPM110 solid-state recorder is ideal for use in the field, in mobile vehicles or in the studio, because it offers master quality recording and playback in a wide range of HD formats, including 1080p (native), 1080i and 720p, and in SD.
The rugged unit records independent-frame DVCPRO HD/50/25 and DV formats as well as master-quality, full-raster 1920 x 1080 AVC-Intra (with the optional AJ-YBX200G codec board). It also offers the flexibility of up/down/cross and aspect conversion.
The HPM110’s six P2 card slots allow users to record continuous, extended clips in sequence onto high-capacity P2 cards or output an extended playlist from five mounted cards to the sixth card slot. Using six 32GB P2 cards, the P2 Mobile records for four hours in 1080p/24 in AVC-Intra 100 and eight hours in 720p/24 in AVC-Intra 100 or DVCPRO HD.
