Progressive Productions selects Panasonic HD camcorders

Progressive Productions in Los Angeles has acquired two Panasonic AJ-HDX900 multiformat DVCPRO HD camcorders.

The company has used the camcorders to shoot a performance documentary DVD for Capitol Records, instructional DVDs for high-fashion hair company KMS California, and a feature short for veteran film and television director William Crain.

The company said the camcorder’s built-in downconverter and HD-SDI outputs are important features because directors use a lot of Steadicam and jib shots on projects. The camcorders often record to DVCPRO HD tape and hard drives simultaneously.

Panasonic’s AJ-HDX900 DVCPRO HD supports a wide range of 1080 and 720 recording formats. It features a native 16:9, 2/3in HD, 1-million pixel 3-CCD system, and produces F10 (at 2000 lux) and low-light shooting down to 0.032 lux (at+62 dB gain).

The camcorder is equipped with 14-bit A/D DSP circuits and offers 4:2:2 color sampling and independent frame compression. It offers built-in, image-enhancing features including three Cine-like gamma modes to replicate the look and feel of film, and is compatible with a wide range of 2/3in lenses and accessories.

Eleven FCC Scenarios for The 600 MHz Band Plan
I suspect that the estimated $44 billion of auction proceeds do not take into account the fact that some spectrum the FCC will buy cannot be resold because it must be used as guard intervals in the 600 MHz band plan.~ Charles W. Rhodes
