Panasonic unveils two new solid-state VariCam camcorders

At NAB2008, Panasonic introduced the VariCam 3700 (model AJ-HPX3700) and VariCam 2700 (model AJ-HPX2700) P2 HD camcorders.

In addition to relying on Panasonic’s solid-state recording technology, these new 2/3in P2 HD models advance digital filmmaking with features including master-quality, full-resolution 10-bit 4:2:2 AVC-Intra 100 recording; variable frame rates in one-frame increments; HD-SDI output of 23.98PsF/24PsF; and a multigamma function, including film-rec look, which closely matches the latitude of film stocks.

A fully solid-state implementation of the DVCPRO HD VariCam, the VariCam 2700 offers 2/3in native HD resolution 3-CCDs and produces cinema-quality, independent-frame 1080 and 720 images with 4:2:2 10-bit sampling in AVC-Intra 100. The camera also supports recording in AVC-Intra 50 compression as well as DVCPRO HD.

The new VariCam 3700 offers full native 1920 x 1080-pixel acquisition and independent frame recording with 10-bit/4:2:2 sampling. The HPX3700 2/3in 2.2 megapixel 3-CCD camera provides a 4:4:4 RGB dual-link live output. Tailor-made for feature films, TV episodics and commercial production, the VariCam 3700 records in full-raster 1920 x 1080 resolution in AVC-intra 100, AVC-Intra 50 and DVCPRO HD.

The AJ-HPX3700 and AJ-HPX2700 will be available in fall 2008.

WMUR-TV Says FAA Drone Rules Preclude ENG
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
