Panasonic introduces AG-HVX2000 camcorder

Panasonic introduced the AG-HVX200, a 1080i/720p/480i multi-format camcorder at NAB2005.

The AG-HVX200 DVCPRO HD P2 handheld camcorder provides 1080i and 720p recording with the 100Mb/s DVCPRO HD quality. It shoots on a P2 card in 1080/60i, 30p and 24p; in 720/60p, 30p and 24p; and in DVCPRO50, DVCPRO or DV.

With the AG-HVX200, HD and SD video is recorded on the P2 card as IT-friendly MXF files that can be downloaded to a nonlinear editing system or server, or edited instantly from the P2 card by connecting an IEEE 1394 or USB2.0 interface. P2 cards mount like a regular hard drive from a NLE system’s point of view.

Third-party nonlinear editing systems from companies such as Apple, Avid and Canopus are available to work with the AG-HVX200.

For newsgathering, the AG-HVX200’s pictures are enhanced with its built-in news gamma curve that assists the ENG photographer by suppressing over-saturation in highlighted areas during sudden contrast changes. With its pre-record function, the camera starts recording from the moment it’s switched on.
